Can I suggest that you start monitoring your synch speeds as well.
You may find that is a large part of the problem

I have been watching the sync speed and it has been steady at 3000Kbps
In the past it has dropped to 2500Kbps for a few days and then goes back to 3000Kbps

I have been on up to 8MB for about 2 months now and at first the speeds were brilliant, but now incredible disparity, much as you have seen. PN say "speeds vary"
Whatever happens always remember "We will do you
.........................proud" say Pnet.

That's interesting, your download speed minimum point  is higher than than my maximum Sad
Well my speed has gone back to normal and is ok at the moment. so I am happy that now I can get some stuff done, I hope it stays like this.
BTW it is not easy to type with your fingers crossed Tongue
