Packet loss to google.

Hi, I've been noticing slowness/timeouts when accessing google lately, I've run a few pings and seen packet loss only to google. such as below. Other sites like bbc, thinkbroadband etc have no issues. Any ideas? Smiley

Re: Packet loss to google.

Those are probably Plusnet addresses for their front end cache or whatever it's called.   I don't know if it applies in that case, but parts of Google are known to drop pings as low priority traffic when conditions dictate.  It doesn't mean they're not responding to the traffic they're supposed to be handling.
