It might help if you provide a few more details.

Location? Cable? DSL? Modem / router type? Whether tests are via wireless or ethernet.

If ADSL how about posting the SYNC speed from the Modem stats

I was looking at a speed issue today where they could not get over 600k down, Did an isolation test and bang straight up to 6Mbps down when I unplugged the Panasonic cordless home phone.

Hi Stevie - are you still having issues? Let me know what sites and when etc and I'll see what the techs say.

Cheers, Gary
