Whilst this is slightly cheating and having stupid RDP issues that slow the connection down:

I believe the internet and peoples movements around the web are closely scrutinised by various security agencies , when you sign up to facebook and other such social networks , they even tell you so.

I'm very envious of all the download speeds shown - we live a couple of miles from the exchange and have started experiencing our speeds being reduced from a fairly consistent 1.5M to 85k.

When queried BT said that our max speed settings had somehow been reduced to 300k. They apparently reset the setting at the exchange and 36 hours later we experienced 1.5M again - only for the speed to reduce back to around 300k a couple of days later.

To my knowledge, nothing has changed apart from the telegraph pole outside our house (with lines to about 6 houses) being changed - but ever since that day, we have suffered with these very low speed issues. Is anyone aware of pole top wiring changes which could cause the exchange max speed to be lowered (otherwise I'm struggling to work out what is going on) ?

You'll want to swing that prayer mat round to 241 degrees then, 'cos it's my clapped out router that's holding back the speed
