In general my Telecom internet broadband speed is OK - not amazing but OK - but there is one site I use often which is so slow to load that it won't load in Chrome at all and only manages to load all the css in Firefox about 1/2 the time - its Its a huge site - about 57th according to Qnantcast so there is no problem their end - and I never had a problem on telstra- but this is driving me insane as they have an interactive uploader which just won't load for me at the moment. 

I am in Wellington/Johnsonville - if you can get the site to load reasonably fast - its very random - I cant get the front page to load at a ll but my own home page will - even if most of a page loads I cant get images to load

This is the only site that I have problems with so I am suspecting the so-called transparent proxy at Telecom's end . This problem is ongoing for months

Proxy issue. Loaded fine for me in CHCH on Telecom. I have this same issue with other sites though that load fine for other Telecom users and it appears to be that dam proxy (in my uneducated opinion). You can report a proxy site problem to ptinson using pm as mentioned in this thread:

lissie: but this is driving me insane as they have an interactive uploader which just won't load for me at the moment.

Is it just the uploader that is giving issues or the site in general?
