My O broad bands slow.

Hello, I was on tiscali 1 mbps and i had no trouble at all it was quiet fast and so was the computer.
Since installing O2 every thing has slowed down.
The Internet is so slow and even my PC doing normal things is slow.
The connection speed on speed test, download is 3480 kbps upload 652kbps.
Downloading is very very slow.

Now the speed looks OK to me but it is unbelievable slow.
I have run all the scans and defrag and scan disk etc.

I will call them if this continues.
Any ideas why this is please.

You are gettng nearly 3.5,what are you paying for?

I did install mcafee after a couple of week. That slowed it even more, so I took it off.

Yes I know I am getting 3.5 and it should be good and I would be happy if it was going as fast as my 1 mbps connection with Tiscali. But my system is so slow since I put O2 and i can't understand why when it says i am getting 3.5.
I was wondering if something was causing it.

Have you ran up to date anti virus and anti spyware programs incase there's something on there slowing it down?

For goodness sake, I don't wish to appear rude but you keep posting these threads. Why don't you ring O2. It's free and they are very helpful indeed. I've had a couple of small issues, which they resolved very promptly.
