    Anyone think this internet speed is acceptable?

    over the past few days this is what my BT home HUB is running on... what exactly do we pay for!

    First thing I do when mine is real slow is unplug it for 2 minutes and the power back up, always seems to be faster then.

    thats a shocking speed have you done a hard reset of the hub

    That is really SLOW... my mobile internet is faster, with a bit higher ping..

    Did you set the wireless encryption on? neighbours might be using P2p through it...

    Or you might have downloaded more than fair usage policy limit the last few month - BT comes to cut you down...

    with bt you pay for usage allowence not speed, speed is UP TO 8mb. reset your router you will proberly find it increases.

    was going to say make sure its secure that speed is awful

    you need to switch it off and leave it off for up to 10 minutes to let the BRAS profile reset. then it should sync again at a higher speed. also make sure there is no damage to the phone line anywhere or anything that could cause interference.

    i left it unplugged for 15 minutes while i had a shower lol so that results after a reset

    the networks secure with passwords and all that, ill double check nobodys hijacked my network by looking on the hub settings but i doubt it.

    what package are you on?

    they only usually limit at peak times

    I am supposedly limited between 5pm & 12pm by BT but I don't notice a difference at all and I always download at least 80GB a month

    everybody on BT is throttled between 4-12pm although BT deny it

    more likely to be a computer issue at your end

    last i hear the equipment at exchange is set to 30 min disconnection time so 31 mins is req'd
    really tho, using speed testers is a waste of time and effort, and bears no relation to anything other than the momentary connection to that server.
    you want to check speed your syn'cing at? look on the router
