For the past two weeks or so my internet speeds have become a joke, it’s usually after 4is and ok in the night maybe after 10pm or so, at first I thought it was this throttling business going on but I’ve stopped the heavy downloading & streaming etc for the past two week and the speeds are well shocking between these hours, I wouldn’t mind so much but it’s the time I browse the net the most :mad:

I'm paying £37 for this!! :mad:



/Rant!

Other wise you are silly for complaining about your speeds from a random site. You know your speed is also dependant on the load of that site and what speeds they can provide.

I'm not silly enough to realise the poor speeds I'm receiving, YouTube viewing is poor, online music streams always buffer etc etc, the speed test prove this, I can post one later on tonight for a comparison,

Results/tests from the above website

The speed you were told off that shoddy online speed tester is way lower than what your getting. Your getting around 400kb/s are you sure your area is not in the process of being upgraded to 20MB unless it already has. Have you scanned for viruses and spyware ect. Try turning off your firewall and connecting streight to your modem.


I'm getting around 400kb/s? Where have I stated that :confused:

Yep tried all the usually stuff, direct connection to the VM Modem etc, my Linksys router is connected to 4 other comps in the home and there all reporting the same speeds :(

@fothsn
They guaranteed the price for 12 months as well mate so push as hard as you can
I'll be ringing them again soon as they are doing another discount to noobs deal. I give them the "Oi i have been with you from day one paying for your Premium services, why are you giving strangers a better deal", Routine. Works every time.

Cheers mate :) will give them a call.


@ tolien seems I have confused you with the screen shot :p Its one download after one other not all together I’ve joined/edited them as one image rather than showing several download images if you get what I mean,

Another longer download this time,



Edit/ As you can see I shouldnt fall into the throttle web ;)
