    its called traffic management i,m afraid, i think its from 5pm till 11 or something where your speed slows down somewhat

    I am getting similar at moment. When it all goes slow seems to coincide with a crackle on telephone line
    Broadband keeps dropping and sometimes reconnects. Other times wont do so. So annoying.
    After taking all the BS about a faulty modem the support people are blaming noisy lines and gotta phone the telephone guys

    its nothing to do with phone line, its traffic management, read it on their website, its fine in the day but when 5pm comes along its all change i,m afraid, (its when everyone comes home n starts using pcs, internet etc, hence the slow down)

    Are you all Virgin customers?

    I know Fibre optic is great as in you get what they say not "up to" but is it all the time your speed gets throttled?

    between 4-9 you can only dl 1500mb otherwise your speed is capped 75% i.e like you said 3mb! (roughly 330kb/s max)

    I would be amazed if the fault is my end. Checked all the usual stuff. Its intermittent. Can go for days/months with no issues then bingo....... chaos

    Im with Virgin, and my net has been unbelievably slow today...all day hell i can't even play call of duty. So far it has taken hours to download pes10 demo and it still hasn't finished. Think its a problem with Virgin today

    Just saying as i had a problem phone would ring BB would cut off.

    That solved that problem, simple but effective.

    Sounds like you have more probs though
