Me too, lots of sites extremely slow to access tonight. I noticed this a few days again also, but it did come right after a few hours. A number of sites are fine though.

I am having trouble accessing international sites right at the moment. I wasn't going to mention anything thinking it might be something temporary, but it looks like I'm not alone...

It's not just international sites either. Even nzpost.co.nz is very very slow, along with many others.

ditto, have filled out a fault report. GZ blog pages are fine, apart from links to things like googlesyndication.com etc.

Yep, looks to be internationally hosted sites at least on Telecom network. Some are really slow and others don't even get close to loading.

Anyone know if it's just a Telecom thing or SX connection issue or bigger?

Yes issues for me also tonight.

Some sites are resolving but several quite major ones (Yahoo / Google) are not.

Have also contacted Telecom via Twitter to let them know... quicker than a voice call.

Hope they sort their DNS probs out soon :-(

Yeah, some local sites as well as international sites are going slow or not loading at all too.

I reckon it's still international traffic, but I could be very wrong, because a few local NZ sites not loading are stuck on Google services such as Google Web Fonts or Google Analytics.

Affirmative Broken.

Similar to recent outtage. Hopefully minions are onto it via some food chain contacts.
