Has anyone else been noticing international traffic timing out and being just generally slow lately?

Well mine's always slow in regard to 'Fullspeed' as I assume I'm on a Conklin. But the last couple of days international sites have been very patchy whilst local traffic is still near instantaneous.

I get 550KB/s downloads during the day from random servers overseas... and last night i downloaded 2GB from overseas around 7pm @ 280KB/s. (i was using secure port 443)

Its not bad for me, although sites like youtube at peak times (6-11pm) are fairly slow, can't stream realtime-need a bit of buffering. I wonder why?

I might be.

Had internet issues last night (on VFX and phone was fine) reset modem and was fine although did not use for long. Partner has been complaining internet going down on and off today but phone working.

Will test tonight to see if its timing out.

Prob not relevant but I'm in palmy.
