Hi all
I live in a really bad area for broadband where i'm with sky broadband connect i'm actually paying for the 8mb service but only ever achieving 0.5kbps.Sky tell me this is because of the nearest telephone exchange box being 4 miles away.So is there anything i can do to speed up my connection and are sky allowed to get away with this seeing as i'm not getting the service i pay for.

Can you post your full line stats up from the router if you can please?

Hope you get sorted,but as for Sky getting away with it,you are getting what they say,that is up to 8mb,though i wouldent be happy either.Did you check what speed you could get in your area?
