Conflicting BB speed reports

Hi guys,

This is currently going through the usual channels, but wondered if anyone could shed any light on my problem.

I recently moved, and had by BB transferred over. I have an internet connection (which was a blessing in itself after reading all the stories on here), but when I connect, the little speech bubble tells me the connection is 6.6mb,


but the internet is incredibly slow.
When I run a speed test, it's only running at around 512k.



Have a got a problem at my end somewhere?

(I'm using a BT Voyager 105, if that's important).

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

The first one is your connection to the BT exchange, the 2nd one from the exchange to PN and beyond.

There have been troubles over the last few days with the contention on the PN servers.

You could try disconnecting and reconnecting a few times and you should see your speeds improve (with luck) :?

Hi Hotlane...

On your link I'm showing 5500kbps...
The trace does show thn-agl...

Speed test is now varying between 2.5mb and 3.5mb.

I was only on 2mb when the problem started so I can't complain too much.

Thanks for your help all!

Hi I am also having probs with download speed. my bb is now at 297kbps. I am on upto 8mbps using a bt voyager 105. Plus net are telling me there is no prob but it is now getting very depressing. security updates etc are taking forever and I only have limited time to get work done. I am not quite as good on these new pcs as I should be so please you language a 2 year old might understand. Thanks peeps
