Now HTTP is crawling.

Plusnet, you can't wriggle your way out of this. HTTP traffic should at least be decent but now thats struggling too. I've barely managed to scrape a connection to this forum.
It's becoming RIDICULOUS.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

They don't look too great at all! You're best seeing if you can get on a gateway with a low number of PAYG Interactive drops. Mondays are typically the busiest night of the week.

Yep, it'll be interesting to see how things pan out tomorrow night...

Re: Now HTTP is crawling.

Constantly, since about last Thursday, as soon as about 4PM hits, my HTTP Spedtests on My Broadband Speed currently cut down to under 2MB from 6 during the day, surfing becomes sluggish as does Youtube etc.

Re: Now HTTP is crawling.

@csogilvie - got the very same issues, at 4PM during the week 2.4MB/s reduced to 0.1MB/s and then at midnight went back to 2.4MB/s. At weekends it did this at 11am.
At 0.1MB/s trying to load YuoTube would be a laugh let alone watch anything.
Don't suppose you are an old Metronet customer are you - see http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,78223.0.html

I caught Tommo last night, and apparently the Ellacoya thought I was on the restricted profile for Premier (or something - SO12) so I'm happy now... just seemd too coincidental other people were reporting speed problems at the time...
Although it does also explain another thing which is useful - once Tommo fixed it last night, things returned to normal (I hope) so we'll see...
