I'm on TelstraClear cable in Wellington. I find ebay and amazon can be a bit slow, even in off peak times. Sometimes it times out, sometimes it's super fast too. If I fire up a VPN to the states and then surf ebay/amazon pages are MUCH snappier.

Anyone else find the same? Any thoughts on why?

I'm currently awaiting a response on a fault logged with Vodafone around issues with poor performance & load times to a whole range of major international sites and services, wonder if it's related.

Could be, could be. It's a bit random, I just tend to run through a VPS for international sites when the problem starts as it seems easier.

Inphinity: I'm currently awaiting a response on a fault logged with Vodafone around issues with poor performance & load times to a whole range of major international sites and services, wonder if it's related.


Had the same problem with Apple's online store, Reddit, my work's email (Outlook Web Access) etc. I originally thought it might have been my DNS settings so I tried Google and the ADSL Vodafone DNS and the problem still remained. I'm on Vodafone mobile broadband and interesting enough the problem doesn't appear - something strange is occurring north of the bombay hills.

I had the problem this morning. The server it was waiting for was an Akami server

ir.ebaystatic.com

I could ping it, 289ms response time with a 48 TTL! I fired up a VPN, 176ms and TTL59.

They must have some really weird routing going on.
