Slow This Evening?

Is it me, or is everything going a tad slower than normal tonight?

I've just been playing Unreal Tournament 2003 of a variety of different servers (Jolt, BlueYonder, Multiplay, Barrysworld etc.) and I was getting constant packet loss and as a result high pings.

General browsing seems slow as well. Anyone else having problems?

Yep...It was pretty slow yesterday til bout 7pm-ish when it suddenly speeded up.

It's just gone slow again now. Web Browsing, P2P, ...the lot.

Yes, I'm trying to upload an entire website to the FTP space on plus net. Would be just as quick using the dail up. The service from PN does seem very variable. Some nights it's blinding, some nights it's like I've dipped the connectoin in treacle.

Ping time is 3 times as slow as normal currently - it is normally about 28ms for the BBC 212.58.224.55 and PlusNet portal 212.159.8.137 but they are both around 80ms at the moment.

Does anybody think that the Service Status page should display full and up-to-the-minute status info? I remember a few years back that PlusNet's sister company F9 used to have Big Brother (not the TV show) monitoring all its servers - now THAT'S accountability and transparency. Wouldn't it be helpful, in customer service terms, if PlusNet added a Big Brother monitoring link to is's Service Status page? See http://bb4.com/

Does this happen every Sunday?
From VisualRoute:

No problems for me at all..... browsing OK and no worries.

Latest results from ADSLGuides speedtest look pretty normal to me:

Downstream 468 Kbps (58.5 KB/sec) 505 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 244 Kbps (30.5 KB/sec) 263 Kbps (inc. overheads)

Which is exactly what they said to me. When I replied saying it's probably not all I got back in return is:

"Dear Customer,
Thanks for the feedback, it helps alot. We are aware and currently monitoring the situation."

Which sounds more like a way of trying to fob me off because nothing has been done within the past four hours.

Things were going fine for me up till about an hour ago. Left connection running on P2P and went for dinner... came back and the connection had dropped (been happening *ALOT* lately) and when i reconnected I couldn't sign into MSN or go to my Hotmail inbox. The P2P seems fried too... don't seem to be connecting to most hubs on Direct Connect.
