Re: Current speed

Speed tests can vary considerably from moment to moment, and from speedtester to tester.
Which one did you use? Try the PN one http://www.mybroadbandspeed.co.uk/ .
If you get an unbelievable result from any tester, run it again straight away. (You have to wait 3hrs with the BT one though).
Edit: Note using speedtesters does use up your bandwidth mind.

Re:Current speed

Your IP Profile is still showing at 7150, as is the profile on our side so that's not the cause of the slowdown.
Is it just during peak hours you're seeing the slowdowns or does it happen at other times of the day too?
