Slow connection with Tiscali BB

  lardeater 16:46 25 Nov 2004

I have used Tiscali BB for about 10 months now with no probs. A few days ago it started running slow, pages that normally load instantly take ages to load and some don't load at all, my progress bar just gets to 4 or 5 segments then stops. I've scanned for viruses with Norton and I've also tried disabling my antivirus protection. I've even re-installed Windows XP.
Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

I'm on Tiscali 512 BB and I have no problems. So I suspect it is within your computer where the problem lies. Reinstalling Windows is fairly drastic. How about your BB modem, have you tried reinstalling that. Perhaps it might be a good idea to contact Tiscali for support. Sorry I can't answer your question, but at least you know that Tiscali is working OK.

Like rwaprawn, I use Tiscali BB without any problems.

Bear in mind that different times of the day will cause your connection to run more slowly - particularly UK afternoon/evening which is during the US business day.
