Hello there,

i was wondering if someone could help me with my speed/mbps problem.
My speed keeps racing down from 54 mbps to 1 or 2 when i try and do anything online. Like when i try to open a page on Microsoft Internet Explorer, or when i try to voice on Yahoo!.

Please help!

It's very common for service providers to throttle download speeds after allowing some higher speed traffic for loading webpages. If the slower speed is what is in your service contract that is what it is being throttled down to.
