I am in Wellington, using TelstraClear cable modem service, 10 Mbps. It takes about 55 seconds for my browser to show the SMH homepage.

For comparison I can happily download an iTunes movie (1.4GB) in about 25 minutes on a bad day. Or Geekzone loads in about two seconds.

Hi Steve,

Similar results for me in Christchurch on TCL Cable 10Mbs.

Pinging ffxd.adbureau.net [122.248.157.38] with 32 bytes of data:

Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 47ms, Maximum = 63ms, Average = 51ms

I just opened the smh homepage and it took about 1 minute to display the majority of the homepage, but took 3m10s until the browser showed "done".

I also tried brisbanetimes.com.au again, about 1 minute to load the majority. 3m20s until the browser showed done.

If I add diret.fairfax.com.au to my hosts file as suggested earlier in this thread, the time from "go" to "done" is about 9 seconds.

Hi, thanks again for the replies.

If you are running Windows there is a plugin for IE (written by AOL), that produces a waterfall graph of the page load. It would be very useful to me if you could install this plugin and load www.smh.com.au

http://sourceforge.net/projects/pagetest/files/pagetest/2.0.0.205/Pagetest_2_0_0_205.msi/download

Then in IE Click on Tools / AOL Pagetest.

Enter www.smh.com.au in your browser and wait for the page to load. Then in the pagetest window, click on File / Export Waterfall. If you could then email me this image file at my_forum_username at fairfaxdigital.com.au it will help me a lot.

Regards
Steve

Hi freitasm,

Thanks for that. ffxd.adbureau.net would appear to not be happy at all over TelstraClear. I just tested on Vodafone(iHug) with no issues.

I am chasing this up and will let you and your readers know how I get on.

Any other data points from others appreciated.

Regards
Steve

Phew! I thought I was the only one having issues with smh.com.au. For me it seemed start about a week ago. Am finding the News Corp websites in Australia to be slow also.

I'm with Vodafone/iHug ADSL on the Waiatarua (Waitakere Ranges) exchange.

I tried it at work today (they use Compass wireless with a symetrical 10Mb/10Mb link) and it loaded instantly.



Edit: www.smh.com.au takes at least a minute to load, also testing other Australian sites:


www.nrl.com.au - instant
www.abc.net.au - slow
www.aph.gov.au - instant
www.news.com.au - slow


I note that all the slow ones are those that use Akamai.

Hi all.

We are still looking into this issue, including Akamai and our Ad serving provider.

If I could get a couple of traceroutes to direct.fairfax.com.au from TelstraClear Users that would be great.

Cheers
Steve

Great, thanks.

Two more little tests. If anyone has tcptraceroute could they

tcptraceroute direct.fairfax.com.au

Finally in a browser if you try this, what do text you get back (or timeout / or blank?)

My problems seemed to fix themselves late yesterday arvo, now having no problems with smh.com.au, news.com.au or abc.net.au.

FWIW - http://direct.fairfax.com.au/hserver/AAMSZ=4x2/SITE=VID.MH.SMH.NEWS/AREA=HOMEPAGE returns

Yes it's still timing out for me also. I would put the blame on Telstra's transparent proxy and the route appears to be fine.
