The network has been very slow (to timing out on some pages) for me today on both national and international sites.
I tried another modem, checked cabling, rebooted/checked PC's etc but still painfully slow.

My modem is connected at a good rate still though 22006 (Kbps.) DOWN.

I've sent mail to the faults section as I gave up waiting on the phone for service.20mins.
Anyone else having issues?

Have you tried this speedtest?

And are you sure you haven't been capped due to hitting your usage cap (if you're on a throttle on cap plan)?
