Everything seems to be slow today

Has anyone else had trouble this morning, web pages taking a long time to start loading, (google, BBC, Plusnet to name a few), ftp also very slow and even trying to send a email it seemed to take a long time to connect to the outbound server.

Edit: just done a speed test and once the site loaded that seemed ok
2nd edit - just done a gateway check and it comes up with unknown gateway

Re: Everything seems to be slow today

Have just raised a potential issue with FTP stalling but not personally aware of any other service wide issues at the moment. Anyone else having similar problems?

Re: Everything seems to be slow today

I seem to be having the FTP problems - keeps getting halfway through and saying 'No socket'.
It was fine this morning.

Re: Everything seems to be slow today

I sometimes cannot get the internet to respond today at all and have to try again and again.  Also, email could not find mail.plus.net yesterday but seems ok today.  But the internet playing hard to get today, incluing Plusnet and BBC websites, is frustrating.

Yep, web is very slow for me too.

Re: Everything seems to be slow today

Yes, something is intermittently wrong today.
My browser (Firefox) often sticks at "Connecting to ...", requiring multiple Escape / Reloads or give up.  Seen a couple of sites eventually respond but without loading their stylesheet (page unformatted) - browser probably gave up trying to load it.  Problem doesn't seem to relate to geographic location.
Email (Thunderbird) has been having trouble connecting to plusnet and another provider.
Reset my router to get a different gateway (PTN-AG1 then PTG-AG2) but no improvement.

BBC is very slow for me, community seems ok, but not particularly snappy...

Re: Everything seems to be slow today

I wonder if there's a wider problem, I'm getting general internet sloth today and I'm not on a PN connection.

Re: Everything seems to be slow today

Likewise here in the South between 11 and 11.45am this morning.  Hanging on just basic surfing and then timing out in Mozilla. Also happened yesterday for several minutes late afternoon and then ok!
Seeing this post makes me wonder now!

Re: Everything seems to be slow today

Slow here too (Dorset if location makes any difference  Smiley )
I've been ploughing through the Broadband speed forums, speedcheckers etc to see what might be happening. Mind you, for a while now my connection has been flaky, just haven't had time to f*rt about with all the checks PN want me to do first. My view is, if I can happily use streamed media at some points in the day, I presume my own kit, wires, filters etc are fine. If at other times, like this morning, service is atrocious, methinks the problem lies externally.

Something amiss, hmmm?
My exchange shows a red flag, should have been fixed 2 days ago, but hey ho.

Re: Everything seems to be slow today

From my office which is not a PN connection, it is some kind of uncontended fibre connection to an ISP, some sites are slower to load. Sad

Re: Everything seems to be slow today

Hi,  Yes here in Cumbria I had noticed very slow loading of websites this afternoon. Did a speedtest and it said 5.3 ie my usual. I don't know any other tests though.
