Default Was Be and now virtually unusable.

Another BeSky moan I'm afraid...
So, I faffed around with updating firmware and getting the new static IP
address sorted out a few weeks ago but this weekend I've lost my
patience and any "benefit of the doubt" good will WRT Sky.

Doing a computer change-over in the shop I've had to do a huge amount of
Windows 7 SP1 "essential updates" on the New computer which has given me
a very good report on the new BeSkyBe network, and it's not been much fun.
Everything from Adobe to AVAST to Windows to Quickbooks and a great many
more update/download sites have all been barely usable.

For the last 2 days I've randomly checked speedtest.net and the absolute
maximum (and incredibly brief) speed seen was a blip to 3.5Mbps
downstream. Average was around 2Mbps.

Bearing in mind on Be. of old for the last 4 years or more I've had a
rock solid 18Mbps never faulting or wavering.
My line length to the exchange is less than 200m!

Needless to say I'm going to get out while I can and toddle off to my
friends at Zen.

****

Sorry I'm not understanding you blaming Sky for for lack of speed as they
have not physical taken over the service yet and things are are still on
BE/O2 network.
Have you reported the fault to Be?
Regards
David
