Fluctuating Astraweb Speeds


[link to this post]
 
Noticed recently that during downloading, my speeds fluctuate from 25mb/s to as low as 2mb/s over a short period. This can go on for any length of time. I have tested speeds when this happened on standard speedtest sites, and I'm fine with a 30mb/s download result.

Any thoughts on this, as I understand Sky Fibre has no traffic shaping...

Many thanks

Doesn't sound right to me, im on Newshosting, and get around 4.32 Mb/s - 4.47 Mb/s download speed all the time, on the up to 38Mb Fibre, wired connection, and you are right, they don't do traffic shaping.

I know the wireless is not very good, so if you're using that, it might be the prob, so try wired.
