Extremely slow internet speeds.

Hi all, I was hoping you could all shed some light on this situation more so than customer support.

As of the morning of the 9th July 2010 my internet speeds dropped dramatically. Im on a 2Mb/ps Tiscali/Talk Talk package and as of yesterday, and today my speeds will not go over 0.13Kbps on any speed test!

I have called the support line and done all the appropriate tests.

Have just spoke to Tiscali/TalkTalk customer services again. Still no progress, according to them I am receiving the full 2Mbps. Although Im not getting anything close to that my end.

Thanks in advance.

If you are using Firefox you could try this:

Open Firefox
Type 'About:Config' into the Address Bar
Click 'I'll be Careful'.
Now type 'pipe' into the search bar at the top of the webpage

Now double click on the 3rd Line and change the value from 4 to 100.
Exit out of Firefox. Restart Firefox after 20 Seconds.

Thanks for the reply, sadly no change.

The overall speed is poor, even when downloading through clients such as Steam the rate will sit around the 0.13Mpps area.

Repeat the previous steps but on the last line change the value to true.

No change.

I will add that we are seeing these speeds on both of our computers.

I get around 0.60-1MBPS

I can't think of anything else.

I will come back to you in about 1 Minute. Just trying out something.

Thank you.

Could this be an exchange problem?

Customers services didnt report any faults however, Im sure they have been known to cover the truth?

I just switched from Firefox to Safari 5. I immediately saw a difference in speed.

Try this Piece of Software. It worked for me to speed up IE, although I do not use IE.

This will take some time to download :(

However, I will let you know how I get on.


I'll come back at around 12:15

Pleasure helping you so far
