Re: Speed Dropped!

Hi there,
I've had a quick look over your conenction and nothing seems to have changed in the last few days. Are you connecting wired or wireless?

Re: Speed Dropped!

Hi it turns out to be a Laptop charger causing my homeplugs to sync stupidly slow!
New result

I think the speedtest + thinkbroasband servers could be overloaded as usenet is reporting 76Mbps download
Sorry to waste your time like this.

Re: Speed Dropped!

Getting massive latency. 185-215ms to bbc.co.uk and various other sites.
Connecting to work VPN is painful, and cannot stream from youtube (buffers for a few seconds, then struggles to keep up, and getting constant stuttering as it buffers).
This has been on for a while, any ideas when it will be resolved? Day time it works fine.
