    what i found with bt at certain times of the day and night they will cap your speed at the busy times so you could try again in a few hours and you will get 5mb again when i was with bt 3 year ago if i wanted to download i use to do it through the night as day time was slow in the end had enough of them and as soon as my 18mth contract ranout transfered to virgin as it never slows down at any time and their slowest broadband was faster than bt's fastest 3 year ago

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Think yourself lucky. We've moved out to the sticks a bit and having had cable broadband at their slowest speed of 10Mb (they did 100Mb in our area) at the old house. We just had our broadishband (as we're now calling it) connected and the absolute maximum I've seen so far is 1.04Mb it usually hovers around 0.6 to 0.7Mb. Our mobile's give considerably faster internet. Seems it's a problem for the whole village as we're attached to Ely exchange which is miles away and we're not cabled so it's tough luck basically.

    Sucks, I can tell you lol.

    You'll probably find that they've updated the exchange equipment. A new generation of ADSL kit is being rolled out across the country. My exchange was upgraded a few weeks ago and my speed has risen from around 4Mb to around 7Mb. I'm with PlusNet and had an email from them a month or 2 ago telling me what was going to happen.
