Is it just me or is the Internet lagging?

I don't know about you but the Internet in general appears to be very laggy (if that even is a word). Even doing an F5 on the Forum index page here has an obvious tum tee tum about it.
Corrected type.

Re: Is it just me or is the Internet lagging?

Well I pressed F5 to refresh my 'Unread Posts' and waited 19 seconds for the result of which is attached!
No one else was using the Internet at the time either. So if it works well for you purleigh then it may well be a local issue.

Re: Is it just me or is the Internet lagging?

Was it only the community site loading slow or were other sites doing the same? Are you still having issues now?

Re: Is it just me or is the Internet lagging?

Hi Chris,
Yes actually I am, and not just the PlusNet sites either. Some sites can take an age while others do not. I've not way of seeing the stats on my ADSL lines due to my configuration, maybe this is something you can do. FWIW I'm using google as the primary (Cool and secondary (4) DNS.

Re: Is it just me or is the Internet lagging?

You're connected at full 8128 down and 832 up. The profiles are what I'd expect too.
There's nothing immediately obvious that I can see.
Can you run the BT Speedtest and follow through on the further diagnostics section once the first test completes.

Re: Is it just me or is the Internet lagging?

Thanks again Chris.
Done for both lines. Isn't the ping a bit high? As it might explain the expletives coming from my Son's room!

Re: Is it just me or is the Internet lagging?

We can't see the ping directly. You can try the following from a command prompt and let us know the results:
ping bbc.co.uk

Hello,
This is the result of my ping test from this morning.

So your thoughts on this would be useful, as this issue is still present, and quite annoying.

Re: Is it just me or is the Internet lagging?

Your ping times seem very reasonable over adsl.  Here are mine over wifi & a 5Mbps link.

Re: Is it just me or is the Internet lagging?

They are fluctuating a  little more than I'd expect, from 45 to 81 within a couple of responses. Could you set up a ThinkBroadband ping monitor so we can see the line over a few days? http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ping

Re: Is it just me or is the Internet lagging?

I've just had a look at this Ping Graphs for my connections and this one looks very interesting:
http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ping/share/781dfb6a4e68958f4371f3ffe50e32e9.html
Your thoughts on it are?
Here is the second interface, this one looks a whole lot better.
http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ping/share/bf51422a6082d1b73237a2c32d90b746.html
Updated to add second line.

Re: Is it just me or is the Internet lagging?

Horrible!
Given that you have a load balancer across two ADSL links ought we to be looking at two TBB BQM plots?
Though there is a high level of persistent packet loss here, there is fairly good and consistent ping rate.
