freitasm: In addition to the previous reply, how do I know it's a proxy problem? My browsers show a connection reset error 101 - those are usually associated with Transparent Proxy services.
mikerussellnz: Cable here in CHCH seems slow the last few nights, google search results not loading next page, lagging, dropped connections. Last night VOIP drop outs and general issues with connecting to sites.
freitasm:But multiple times today, with different sites, I experienced my browser stop on "connecting to ..." and waiting seconds and seconds before it started doing something. This was on multiple computers inside the house and on different domains.
It's not speed, it's actually getting some content back.

Who are you using for VoIP? I'm not having any issue with that at all.
Facebook is fairly bad as well, but who knows if that's the ISP or FB?
iirc TCL have Google cache's in their network, since picking up thousands more customers, have they picked up more cache servers?
mikerussellnz: Google is definitely the worst, now that they seem to use ajax to load the next page of results, it just greys out and sometimes doesn't come back.
Using 2talk for voice, but it was the wife having problems and she was calling her parents overseas, so it may have been a different issue.
DonGould: Are you still on 15/2? I would upgrade to 100/10 if you can/will afford it. That will put you on the D3 network rather than D2, which has to be better for us all in the long run.
DonGould: As for Google, ya that AJAX stuff is a PIA, but is that a TCL issue or AJAX/MyComputer issue?
DonGould: Thing about these flash AJAX applications is they push the work to my computer, which might or might not be up to the task depending on what else I'm doing at the time with it.
