Hi there
Is anyone a member of AOL, if so are you having problems with download speeds.
I have been with AOL for some year now and play a lot of on line Gaming , I run 3 servers and a forum.
But since 12th February 2008 i have had nothing but probs with my latency ( ping ) it go’s through the roof at the same time every day 4.15 , I was wondering if anyone else had this problem with them .
So far i have 15 other members that are having similar probs

Thanks

Viper

Welcome to the wonderful world of AOL slowdowns and connection dropping.

Mornings and afternoons until 4.30 approx ... fine.
From about 4.30 ... forget the gaming on a 2Mbps connection. You`ll be lucky to retain your connection at all until about 5.10.
Evenings from about 5.10 things pick up a bit, slowly though.
After about 10.00 pm connection speeds get closer to what they`ve advertised and you thought you would be paying for.

Cynical? Not really. Realistic? Definitely.

I have the exact same problem but had thought it was because I had moved to a different exchange. I had no (well few) problems before now it all slows down at the times you say and Sunday - well sometimes I just give up.
