Very very slow Broadband

  lemon2 10:30 31 Jan 2003

Anyone know why Broadband speeds have dropped significantly this week. Yesterday, a speed test showed my 512Kb XtremeSolo Pipex connection to be slower than dialup!

It has improved slightly this morning to 104Kb! but up until last Friday it was always spot on and had never dropped.

Anyone else suffering with this?

Like you, I am on Pipex. No problems with speed here in NW London.

Thanks anchor

Been testing my speed every hour, and almost a week a later it has finally returned to a decent 474Kbs down and 251Kbs upstream.

I noticed on ADSL forum a thread about too many subsribers on the xtreme pipe last week - hence slow speeds. It must have been that then.

Back to normal now.

I've had quite a few problem with getting into NTL just of late, even when traffic is historically light. It seems to have cleared now though.
