It does sounds like there was a problem to start with, but I was unfortunate enough to suffer a second one
I have never had my Sky box connected to the phone line as I couldn't really see how it benefitted me to be honest.
When I had Sky BB, I must confess that it wasn't that bad. D/L speeds were around 5.5 and U/L was around around 0.7. The reason I left sky was down to their BB virtually grinding to a halt, and at the time of that happening, it coincided with an article I read about Sky 'over subscribing' and choking their own network. Plus (this might open a whole new can of worms) I was told that Sky have a ratio of 200-1 whereas Orange/EE have a Ratio of 50-1. Plase don't shout at me too loudly for the ratio's, it's what EE quoted to me when trying to recruit me
Although my current speeds are higher than with Sky, my son informs me that with Sky.... He could download stuff at 1MB per second but with higher speeds from EE it tends to be about 600Kb per second. I have no idea what area I'm getting into here but it might make more sense to you guys than it does to me? I'm purely guessing that the website he is downloading from may be responsible for this ?
Ithe website he downloads from is steampowered.com I am very strict regarding torrent sites - so they are not allowed.
