To start off im new to this forum and am sorry if this post is in the wrong section.

Anyway, at home we are with Tiscali (now Talk Talk i believe) and pay for broadband speeds up to 8meg. Untill yesterday the internet was fine and i was getting around 5-6meg in my room (connected via net plugs). Yesterday i came on my pc and noticed that web pages were loading very slowly and the internet would often disconnect. I ran a speed test and found that my download speed was around 0.19 and my upload speed was 0.05. I ran the test again today and the results were very similar. Is there anything i can do about this or is it down to Tiscali?

Any help appreciated, thanks.

It's almost surely the modem, interior wiring, or your ISP. If nothing changed on your end, the top suspect would indeed be the ISP.

Thanks for the response. :)
The ISP thinks it is the filter that seperates the broadband and phoneline.

Well, there shouldn't be a filter between the phone line and the modem, just on ALL the other phone equipment!
