I too had a Tiscali broadband account and found the download speed of around 5 mbs quite stable and acceptable until the last month or so i.e. some time after Talk Talk took over the business. Recently, our exchange has been upgraded to fibre optic although whether this has been rolled out by Talk Talk is not certain. Maximum speeds have subsequently jumped to just under 12 mbs (great!!) BUT, seconds later can drop to 250 kps!
Unless Talk Talk can guarantee a marked improvement in speed e.g. a constant 3 to 5 mps as before, I too shall move to another ISP.
