Speeds Slow Tonight?

Just a quick query to see if there's a general problem this evening as I'm only getting between 600-700 on my 2mb connection.

I don't want to do a speedtest if there's a general problem. My exchange isn't indicating any issues.

Mine's treacle-like tonight - the Pn and AG tests show 900k to 1Mb on a 2Mb line.
It'll improve though once Pn add all those nice clear Metronet pipes to the mix. :lol:

Shame it doesn't reflect how utterly poor web browsing really is at this moment.

Seems fine here. Could it be the gateway you're on or and MSO?

Major Service Outage.

See the usertools exchange checker.

Thanks for the info. I'd already checked on that site and there was a service outage at 14.41 today in Birmingham but it's showing as cleared at 14.42? That seems a tad quick to me: is that normal?

I don't know if it's normal tbh; but I'd agree it does seem rather quick...

Incredibly slow here - no faster than dial up web browsing.

Yet adslguide shows a speed test downloading at ~220k/s.

Confusing.

Guys, I'm getting as low as 269kbps on a 2M Business premier account with a supposed 10:1 contention - figure that out! Feeling pretty short changed and seriously thinking of canning these charlatans.
