I've never had a problem with my broadband for over a year and have always switched it all off at night because it was plugged into the same socket as my PC. I noticed over the last week the speed was dropping but I didn't feel it was an issue until these last few days when I was only getting 450kb/s on Steam! I checked my router connection and it was stuck fast at 5304 kbps, thus phoning up Sky Broadband they told me to try the test socket and different filter and with no difference.
They said it may be due to me switching it off and the line picking that up as a fault, hence dropping the speeds. But I've never had this problem before on any internet connection I've ever had in regards to switching it off!
But any way, I left it on for 24hrs as per their instructions and to wait for the 10 day profiling to kick in again to fix it.
I checked today and it's doing 4695kbps and I haven't even touched it or turned it off! So why has it dropped :mad:
( It should be at 40mbps connection, not 4.5 )
