I'm on cable in Petone. On Sunday it took some time to download emails in Outlook 2010.
Right now I'm trying to download three emails in total size of 94.3KB and it is taking -ages-. First, at home I turned the laptop on and tried to download them. When I got out of the shower, it was still downloading them. I decided to connect the modem to the laptop direct and see if that did anything. Nope. So turned off the laptop. The router and modem stay on overnight.
Now I'm at someone else's house, where they turn the modem (but not router) off overnight (also using TC cable), and I'm currently at 1.57KB of 94.3KB.
Is anyone else noticing this?
