What is going on, this has been happenning for the last few days for me, I ususally get 40k connect speed.

When the modem dails the number, and just near the end of the dailing it seems to dail a bit more, which is not normal.

Is anyone else getting slow speeds with tesco atm ?

Tesco speed

Not had that problem (yet :) ) and usually connect at 45.6 or 31.2 on a bad day.
Since the recent dialler upgrade I have had problems after about 6-8 mins of connection. I can be viewing a site, go the the next page but suddenly it cannot find the server!! Often I have to close the window and open another one, but a few times I've had to disconnect and start again.

Hi,
Might be worth while checking with BT to find out if thaey have put a dacs box on your line to share with someone else.

Just a point to make, apparently BT announced recently that they will not be fitting the DACS line splitters anymore.
Also recent Sky boxes, not just Sky+ have been causing major slowdowns for dial-up and connection problems for ADSL.
If the slow down occured durring the recent heavy rain there is a good chance that there is a problem in the local telecom green box with water getting in; keep an eye on your connection speed next time you have heavy rain.

It may be worth mentioning that if you get a problem of this type, try signing up on PAYG with another ISP (it's free). If the problem is still there, then it is highly unlikely to be due to an ISP fault.
