Slow Orange Broadband are you affected?

since the weekend our internet has been very very slowwwwwwwwww, for a 2mb connection we get .02mbps speeds and sometimes 0.0 and then we get downloads in firefox of no more than 30kbps sometimes 5kpbs. and all temp files are deleted etc

what is going on! some people I know have also have been affected and have had no internet for 2 weeks. according to orange they are closing down the servers and upgrading is this true?

I would love your opinions and I would like you to tell me if you are affected so we can get this sorted

There are alot of Orange users suffering the same at the moment.

I normally get a healthy 6-6.5mb speed, dropping to around 4mb during peak times. I have been getting 0.5mb during peak times for about the last week. Orange have recognised they have an issue with this and hopefully resolved soon.

I am getting very sporadic service from orange which also seems to affect my IE - not sure if that is related or not - my IE keeps freezing from time to time - jarani
