Apologies I was not logged in when I submitted the original post.

Latest BT test shows :

Download speedachieved during the test was - 4.5 Mbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 600 Kbps-7.15 Mbps.
Additional Information:
Your DSL Connection Rate :8.1 Mbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 7 Mbps

A congestion or ISP problem maybe?

At least that speed test is faster than your earlier one smile

Try at different times of day to see if it's your ISP's lack of capacity.
I just popped my head into the TBB Demon forum and see others are reporting similar issues: http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/demon/f/3985268-dem...

You can also check on your Exchange VP status here: http://usertools.plus.net/exchanges/

Look likes you are only on ADSL Max. What exchange? Is it not 21CN enabled?

With those stats you should get throughput of about 6.7 Meg.

1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU => 2011: Orange 19 Meg WBC

blush I saw 26th March as well...

Perhaps it's still the same and everyone left Demon which is why the forum is so quiet?

Ye I think I will try testing at different times when I can make the time.
Has been ok until recently 6Meg+ regularly, which makes me think it could be ISP capacity issues as nothing has changed this end equipment wise etc. although I can't really complain about Demon been stable and reliable until now. Might be time to consider a move if things go downhill.

Exchange is WNLMD Market 1 rural don't hold out much hope of anything other than 20CN ADSL Max for the foreseeable future tbh

Thanks for your input guys.
