Major problems - or is it just me?

Just returned from a few days away. Seamingly everything is fine, but my connection cannot see certain sites.

Cannot access www.newshosting.com
When I try to ping the site, it times out, and I cannot download anything from Usenet.

Also, I cannot access my external email server (pop189.inetc.net).

A friend on another ISP says both are fine.

Any ideas? I've rebooted me router, but still no joy! Cry

works fine here - just a bit slow to load up initially.

I've noticed that with a lot of sites though today.

Both are responding from here (telnet to pop server on port 110 gets the banner up so the pop server is atleast listening... )

How much usenet, p2p and ftp have you used lately? - plusnet start throttling this after 10GB - web based usenet sites count as usenet for this limit.

(unless its changed again, who knows!)

I'm on Premier Option 2 and used 0.8GB in peak time so far this month, so I cannot think this is it.

Well, is it only that site that is slow? can you get to others, eg www.easynews.com ok? can you ftp to sites other than plus.net ? if the above answers are no, probably there's a throttle on that shouldn't be. And are you sure you've only used 0.8gb? According to my VMBU, I've used nothing for the last 3 days, and I know thats wrong.

Access to that site is fine.
This is VERY frustrating. I submitted a ticket, but no response.
It certainly feels as if it is being throttled to zero but my usage is definitely very small and I'm on Option 2.

I can access the website, but I cannot ping to it. Pings timeout.
