I live in the sticks. A local "band of brothers" has stimulated the 200 plus names that BT requires before kitting us out for BB.
They have ruled 9/6/04 as enlightenment day, but I will listen to the spirits of my Scottish ancestry and try to stay with this "normal service" - that is unless it regularly drops to its current sluggishness.
On sign on It seems to be much the same, between 40K and 44K, though I did see it drop to 31K once this a.m.
I'm afriad I'm experiencing the same sluggishness and I began to think it was me since I rebuilt my comp. Checked all Bb connections - no problems. As Leo49 says, threads snap open (used to) but not this last two/three days. So I'm no alone!
and has been for the last couple of weeks. Even Emails take forever to go once the "send" button has been clicked. Certainly, I find this affects all my favourite sites, although restarting the PC sometimes works.
I wonder if it is the current virus problems that are slowing things down.
