I am on NTL BB and at random it does that.
A few months ago it was very bad and I found out that the Brentford was having problems. They gave me a different proxy serve address, that cured the browsing speed.
It might be an idea to contact them for another proxy server address.
At the time only the browsing speed was slow, downloads were still 70-75k!!!

Thanks PSF, I have been on to NTL and there is "yet another problem" with their whatever it is. Just have to wait. Cannot even get to the check sever box in help at the moment. My download speeds are sometimes in excess of 100k!!!!!!
