my uncles connection speed varies from 0.1 to 60mb all day long.. generally around 2-3mb though.. wired or wireless. my issue is fine as i connect to 5ghz wireless and get full speed. I just phoned sky for him and they said if the speed doesn't improve by tonight they'll send and engineer round.
That's a confusing post.
I think you are talking about throughput, not connection speeds. If on FTTP then your connection speed is fixed, and no REIN as has been pointed out. It is your 2.4GHz wireless that is the problem.
Your uncle's connection and yours have no common ground. If his wired throughput varies in the same way as his wireless then it sounds like ISP congestion. However, you may be making a common mistake, when testing wired. I have done it a few times myself.
That is, that when connected wirelessly, simply plugging an ethernet cable into the router and computer doesn't immediately swap the connection. It is likely to stay using the wireless one for a considerable time. Possibly never switching.
Certainly plenty of time to do a speed test.
It is best to force it to ethernet, the easiest way being to turn off wireless on the computer - that is usually either a physical switch or a Function key. Other ways are through the Network Center on Windows or the router GUI.
