Is Orange Broadband going slow?

  Duncanf 15:01 15 Oct 2006

I posted a thread yesterday about my PC taking an age to load any page from the Internet and got a number of helpful comments. Is Orange Broadband going as slow today or do I have a specific problem on my PC? Pages are taking over a minute to load, even the PC Advisor Helproom whereas two days ago they were loading instantaneously. Sorry to come back, but at least I'll find out if it's only me! I'm not aware of doing or adding anything to the PC that would change things. Thanks again in anticipation. XP Pro, Orange Broadband, 1Gb RAM

Not an Orange user but this site is working very quickly at the moment. Orange users can now compare.

My Orange conection has been slow since last wednesday. I thought at fist it was my computer, but two laptops and a desktop would not all break up at the same time would they? I think Orange must be responsible. Hope they fix it soon

Thanks for your reply, anskyber. I think I've a problem here because it's taking ages to even refresh a PC Advisor page. I don't understand what's causing things to slow up but I'll have to try and find an answer. Haven't had any response from Orange users to compare their findings at present. Thanks again.

Thanks, Reet. That's about the same time I noticed it so it may be them!

No I'm fine here and has been for ages, although just a minute ago it did drop the line, 1st time in months, PCA home page takes 5 secs to load.

On XP Home Ed, B/B speed 8.1mbps through a speedtouch 330 adsl modem, Surrey UK.

If it helps, I know Hamilton, Scotland has a slight problem with Orange broadband at the moment, even going down completely last week.

Thanks, bretsky, VCR97, Jak_1 and Johnnie_M.
Sorry I've been offline for a bit. Still slow here in Fife, East Scotland so as Johnnie_M says it may be a Scottish thing!
Thanks anyway for all your replies. If it is my system I don't know what I've done!
