Internet Slow

I am on Tiscali 1mb broadband yet for some reason it is slow. I have done speed tests and they come out at about 900 kb/s, but the internet is not that fast and on Counter Strike Source my latency is 600+ and I am not downloading anything. I have also done many anit-virus/spyware scans and found nothing.Could this be Tiscali or my computer.

Thanks

you could try typing net_graph 3 in the console in game while it wont tell you exactly the problem it will show some connection settings .

Their server in Milton Keynes is down because of the Hemel Hempstead fire. A friend of mine had an email from Tiscali today.

I live in Cornwall and have Tiscali 2.3Mbps but I am finding Explorer very slow indeed too but not sure what to do about it?

SERVICE STATUS UPDATE
Broadband Customers

Earlier today a network link that carries a large percentage of our Broadband traffic failed. We have been successful in re-routing this traffic but as we are approaching our busy time of day we are starting to see congestion which will result in some customers experiencing slow speeds. Engineers are on route to carry out the necessary repairs and we hope to have the link restored as soon as possible. .

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause

Cheers for that VoG was begining to wonder if it was a problem my end as ive just put in a router. I too am in cornwall and speed checks come back fine but pages are taking a age to load.

Hopefully it ill be sorted soon as this is worse than dial up :(
