Major connection slow down

C'mon PN, whats going on?

Quote
Downstream 119 Kbps (14.9 KB/sec) 128 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 27 Kbps (3.4 KB/sec) 29 Kbps (inc. overheads)


Cleaned and re-started 3 machines to rule out network issues, re-started router, and just a few seconds ago, ran the ADSLGuide speed test, and the above was the results. With the PN speed tester saying;

Quote
Your current speed is: 222.00kbps

Which means you can download at 27.75 KB/sec. from our servers.


Exchange status checker thingymibob is showing green for a change, so it's not an exchange problem ....

I realise the connections are contended, and that this is peak time, but this is just silly - especially after the recent "issues" with connections etc that PN seem to have had.

Just to add;

Package: 2MB Premier
Gateway:

Quote
You are currently connected to the "Telehouse East, Juniper 3" gateway. This gateway is sometimes known as pte-ag1.


Cajef,
Last year everything was fine, very few issues, and most of them only minor one's. Major issues have only started as of Jan this year ... with the past couple weeks being the worst thus far.

@ mysteryfcm

It may help you to know that your link above loaded really slow for me!
Is your site run from your home or hosted by PN?

*EDIT*
BTW I am not suffering any speed issues myself.

It just took about a couple of seconds for me.

It could have been down to some of the issues that appear to be effecting certain gateways at the moment (slowdowns, packet loss and laginess on ptn-ag1 and possibly ptn-ag2 especially for certain protocols).

It's actually partially hosted from home, and partially hosted by FastHosts (the scripts that pull the news and Featured Product, are hosted on my home machine due to restrictions on FastHosts servers).

If you stilI have poor speed, I hope you get sorted soon!
