My business partner lives in an old rectory in a dead end road, in the country.
Amazingly he has tolerated a 1Mb download speed for some years.
It has now got seriously bad, dropping to <200k!
He rang Sky, who told him to run netsat that showed up 50 or so entries whereupon the Skyman told him he had too many internet processes running so he should reduce them to get the speed up again.
Sounds like gobbledegook to me and a jolly good way to get rid of a call!
Can anyone please -
1) advise if there is any truth in what he has been told?
2) how can these processes be monitored via software in english, rather than nerdish?
