I took FTTC with Aquiss as they seemed to be the best option, and Martin has been very helpful with his customer service.
THis issue has apparently been refered to BT a few times, with no fault found.
However this is what i experience....
When using Usenet or a multitthreaded download i get like 4.5mb/s which is correct ( synched at full 40mbit)
However when downloading via http or browsing the web, it is incredibly slow!
Downloaded the 100mb test file from aquiss a few times and....
maximum i get is 1024kb/s which is obiously far from unacceptable!

This is the BT Speedtester,
Thats Thinkbroadband Quality meter, which shows some loss at the top.
I was browsing via my 3 dongle earlier, and this is faster web browsing than my 40mbit connection!
I was wondering what suggestions or ideas anyone has here?
My thoughts maybe a long a faulty OR modem or faulty pair?
