Is there a problem with freeserve dialup?

My friend has just phoned to say she cannot access the Internet, she gets a "cannot establish a connection" error message. She is with freeserve 56k dialup I was wondering if they are having a problem with their server. Is anyone else with freeserve having a problem or is the problem more likely to be at her end?

Hi Legolas,
I'm using Freeserve Anytime so earlier on today (9am) I had no trouble with connections and everything was reasonanably quick for 56k. This evening it has been very erratic and has dropped the connection at least seven times. Everything is also taking a long time to load. I'm inclined to think it's Freeserve and their server. I'm running WinXP and all my defaults and connection parameters check out. It's happened a few times as well in the past and I think I might consider the Pipex Solo offer in the not too distant future.
Regards
Aitch
