For the past three days I have been trying to download software updates for my Mac. I've tried at home and in three places in town offering internet access. Necessitates downloading about 650mb without a break, and so far it's failed every time. I also can't download any streaming video. I've never known the internet to be so bad for so long. Back in July/August it was flying.

I know what you mean, the speed fluctuates a lot and I don't get always my 1 MB download speed. While listening to European web radios, I'm mostly loose the connection after 1-2 hours and need to reconnect.

Thanks, I'll try them. I measured the speed a few days ago, and download speed was about 118k, on a connection that's supposed to be 1mb.

I just checked the speed again, and I'm getting 0.42 Mbps download and 2.35Mbps upload. Very odd.
