Doesn't appear to be a general problem click here

Thanks Vog, Already had a look at it.No problems in the NN Area.Any other Ideas as to what may be causing it,Tried repair ,no fault found.Dns Client on automatic.Not had any rain so it can't be that.If it is still the same to-morrow I will give them a call.And if i have to pay for it. They will have one less customer.

I'm in Norwich. I have VM cable broadband from their Peterborough server. I'm getting very slow speeds on some sites, others are fine. I ran a a speed test using a server in London, and got download speeds of 250-340kbps. If I use the servers in Paris or Dublin, I get my usual 1950-1975kbps.

I tried a different speedtest using a server in New York and got 1958kbps. I've no idea about the significance of this. Has anyone got any ideas?

Woodchip,Yes have to press reload to get it to open.According to speed check my problem is NTL and not Pca.And Beynac I know Peterborough is under repair at the moment according to the service status provided by Vog.

Its not a Computer Problem it a General Network Problem. Once you go beyond a point Cable or BT line they all go down the same pipe. And it slow tonight.

UK server site on a 1Mg 974 Kb/s this is normal.

But these are not European Server 214 Kb/s

East-Coast USA Server 107 Kb/s that's like being on Dial-up
