Re: Poor speed in birmingham B30 area ?

I'm having similar issues in Ipswich... Was just trying to download a game and realised that the speed kept essentially going to 0 for long periods... Thought it might just be the client so did a speedtest, it was all over the place but capped at about 43mbps (im on 80 meg line and normally get as such).

 

Now my download is bouncing between 0 and about 143kb/s, with an occassional, albeit short-lived, burst of about 4mb/s before plummeting again...

 

Between the packet loss and this it's a [-Censored-] joke of a service...

@stumpym4 Was that over a wired or wireless connection?
