Tiscali dreadfully slow today

Is anyone who is on Tiscali finding it slow today? I'm down to 192kb on the 2meg package which is pretty pathetic really. I guess the contention ratio must be at max.

"I guess the contention ratio must be at max"

With a lot of people being at home rather than work today, that's a pretty good guess.

I have been complaining to Tiscali about constant disconnections and low speeds, over the past week or so. Since yesterday, everything seems to be running very smooth. On a 'upto' 8Mb service, it was showing between 1.2Mb and 2.9Mb most days, and since I upped from the 2Mb package. BT have stated that I should get about 3.2Mb due to line, but today, it seems as though I am averaging in the 4.2Mb region, so I am keeping my fingers crossed!.

Have you checked Tiscali website, for any service reports, for your area?.

It's zipping along nicely.

Spoke to soon, just had a disconnection with Error 680 -No dial tone. Reconnected straight away with drop of speed to 3.4Mb (just gone 5.15pm as usual- more people coming on-line!)

Yep, checked the Tiscali website for any service issues but all is supposedly o.k. Have just logged in after being out for the evening and it's now about 1.80 meg which is fair enough. Must have been sheer weight of numbers online at the same time.
