I'm on Freeserve and good a good speed tonight (45.2). The site is sluggish - when I clicked on this thread I waited (I timed it) 90 seconds before I hit refresh to get a result. Even then it took a further 12 seconds until I got the page. There have been frequent reports of this recently - I hope that PCA have matters in hand as I'm sure they have to ease the frustration.

I had this for one day, but OK now on Dial-Up instant service. but the other day it would load half page and stop when I Pressed Reload button it would come up and if I was not fast enough it would be lost into never, never, land. I got fed up and called it a day. But as above it's now OK

I have been giving this out all week, but had no feedback - download Opera browser click here

Minimise AOL and use Opera to access PCAdvisor.
