    Yeah, I find rapidshare slow but I think that's deliberate to try and get you to subscribe. I don't think it's a fault of Talktalk coz I get regular speeds of 10mb and that's with a supposed 8mb download speed!

    I've been having issues every now and again but reached a download speed the other day of 550 kb/s! Nearly fell off my chair lol!
    Seems to slow down at peak times but I suppose that's to be expected with TalkTalk as they traffic share.

    I'm with talktalk until min period expires. Most evenings, a dial-up connection would be quicker. :x

    All ADSL connections are shared, it'd wouldn't work any other way.

    However, TalkTalk do implement traffic shaping which means they cut your speed when you're doing some things which may be the cause of the problem, especially if other TalkTalk users have the same problem and users of another ISP don't.
