I am on 8MB but getting crap speeds all the times !!

ok My line is 100% active and I have 8mb.. what a load of crap it is. downloading bittorent files which should max out my connection I have never seen downloaded faster than 300kbs.

is this 8mb service capped so I will only get max speeds at like 3am in the morning or something ??

Hey, you need to check some of the other threads.

Have you only just been regraded? If so there is a settling in period until BT know what the best speed your line can handle.

I'd just like to say, torrent files are extremely unreliable as a speed test.
Speed of download isn't even the same for 2 people on the same connection downloading the same torrent.

Try the speed test under connection settings, if no improvement just wait like the rest of us Tongue

Once youve read the link to katz site, check your router stats. You may find that you are only actually connected at something between 3Mb-5Mb or similar.

There won't be many people that will be able to get a full 8Mb service and even then as more and more people do, it'll slow down because BT are trying to run lots and lots of 8Mb accounts on a network that was only ever provisioned to be at much lower speeds.
