In Chrome I'm finding I often have to try two or three times to access facebook, is anyone else finding that? I asked on facebook, a few friends have said yes, fine from mobile devices but not so good from a PC/mac.

ping -t facebook.com

On Telstra cable at home and I find I need to specifically connect to the https site else it will fail half the time. So long as I choose https it works fine though, slightly annoying seeing as I would like it to always load the https site without me having to specify but I suspect that is more my needing to tidy up an old bookmark or something.

No I don't think so, as it's a) Not a MS Domain, B) Not a TCL Cable Customer.

I have commented on this Facebook thing last week. It seems If you go to http it will fail a few times before working, but if you use https directly it works.

It sounds like the TelstraClear cache farm is at it again.

I was leaning to think it could be something related to the broken Perth - Asia cable, but seeing it always work on HTTPS but almost never on HTTP pretty much excluded that...

Hi everyone. We’ve looked into this and the network is operating to spec, and traceroutes don’t show any issues. We’ve also checked Facebook ourselves and have not experienced problems with load times on either Internet Explorer or Firefox. I've personally not noticed any issues at home on cable either, across three Windows devices and two Andriod.

Cheers, Gary

It is most definitely these 4 customer's local set ups - especially Mauricio's...lol

Seriously though, we see these sorts of things happen on TCL connections all the time. It is amazes me this issue is still apparent! You would really think TCL would get on to their caches and fix things up.

FYI - we are wellington home cable for TCL and like others facebook has been real bad recently.

it hangs at a redirect screen for "facebook static.ak.fbcdn.net"  which seems to be management of static content.

interesting as seems to be a issue for lots of facebook users overseas.

my family members are also reporting there are a few international sites such as Amazon that they say are slowing down recently so I wonder if this is linked.



FYI - not a PC issue as is new and I regularly check for TSR bloat and trogans.

Gary thanks for looking, but this is intermittent and it may be working for you now, but give some time and it will stop working again - as it happened to D1023319.
