Speed help


[link to this post]
 
I have a slow connection despite having a good sync. I realise there are pages of posts on this type but could someone just let me know if this is usual.

I'm syncing around 16mb and getting about 4mb throughput. I realise it is peak time now but I dont remember it getting faster really.

Hope someone can answer and thanks.

Post your router stats.

You only get 4 Meg throughput at off-peak as well? If so, your wiring must be noisy.

it's usual for AOL I'm afraid.
change your ISP! I was having the same problem - 0.3 Mbps after 4pm.
AOL said the problem lay with the BT exchange.
Clearly not true as now with Post Office I get 6Mbps all the time!
