It's due to gravity - broadband signals move much faster when going downhill.

Or perhaps there is a dodgy connection and it just happens to make better contact when upside down?

Yep, thatís why poles are handy, the data slides down the wires from there better.

Is that why I only get 45Mbps? My cabling is all underground - who do I petition to get overhead cables installed?

Keep cutting through your underground cabling, youíll be charged plenty, but theyíll eventually concede and put them up in the air to stop you doing it.

Just be careful that the electrons don't fall out, or you end up with nothing tongue

If you leave the cable unplugged that can happen - amazing how many bytes are lost if people forget to plug the cable in. Also can do serious damage to carpets and clog up your hoover.

I can't see anywhere in the post that suggests this.
