Hi guys can you please help.My Internet speed is up and down from 2.2 M to 160 kbps (orange isp, Speedtouch modem on Viao tower) as i type this but even when i watch a video on youtube it is slow with the pause fan appearing in the middle of screen then starts again for a few seconds a whole video takes forever to watch.
Is there anything i can do to speed this up?? i have cc cleaner and winaso reg claner which i use was ok pre xmas do you think there is a strain on band because of holiday time usage.
Be greatful if you could help

Has this only happened recently, or is your connection always variable?

Your idea about holiday usage isn't silly. As you probably know, your bandwidth will probably be shared with up to 50 other users, so if everyone in your neighbourhood is at home, on the internet, this will slow you down.

Try getting up at 2.00am and seeing what it's like then! ;o)

Hi Joostin

It looks like Orange are capping/throttling your connection.

Can you show me your full line stats please?
