Broadband speed

What are the factors that effect this?

My Sky broadband was lousy until we realised it was being restricted by BT!

The distance from the exchange is a factor, but so is whether the children are on holiday or not!!

So what slows it down?

Dipso, yes I am on Sky's Connect service. When I complained to Sky 2 months ago they asked BT to remove the constraints, and immediately the speed jumped to 6990kbs.

wis, you asked for my speeds now:-

DownStream Connection Speed 1440
UpStream Connection Speed 448

You are quite right!

The drop was mainly caused by moving my router upstairs, and it now seems the BT socket there is faulty. Reconnecting to the main BT point downstairs and the numbers become:-

ADSL Firmware Version A2pB023c.d20e
Modem Status Up
DownStream Connection Speed 5120
UpStream Connection Speed 448
VCI 38

Are these all the numbers you meant?

Thanks Dipso and Jak_1, some useful information there!
