Slow throughput tonight?

Hi.
Throughout the night I've had trouble with HTTP downloads where they are running very slow.

I've run Thinkbroadbands speedtest and the single threaded test is indeed very slow whereas the x6 test maxes out my connection...so the throughput is there but not single threaded which obviously HTTP uses.
Anbody else? Sad

 

(I miss the old network where I could gateway hop the night away to get around stuff like this Smiley)

You could all check your external IP addresses. There appears to be a problem affecting those that start with 51.

I'm 87.1xxx and my speed have halved. 45 down to 23 with the "helpdesk" showing a 46000 connection. I'll give them a few days to fix it then I'm cancelling - I told them this!

Spoke too soon. Completely knackered now. Guess I'll be rescheduling my business presentation.

Re: Slow throughput tonight?

Appears I have a local line fault.  Really crackly line however line tests show nothing.  Now the long long wait for BT to arrive in 48 hours.

What gets me is if the problem gets resolved elsewhere and I want to cancel BT, I get charged £50.  Completely bonkers.  Surely if BT allowed cancellations they'd be able to redirect resource quicker and improve response times.
