ANybody else seeing google analytics hanging up sites today (on TelstraClear cable)?  Also noted a number of other sites (even ignoring YouTube!) sluggish or patchy, and the TV3 News & Radio Live streams DOA for the 6pm bulletin.

Is the transparent proxy dead in the head again maybe.

So just me then?  Lots of international sites having problems, just stalling for ages with partially loaded pages, mostly on what looks to be coming from content delivery networks and that type of thing. 

I'm using the T/Clear DNS servers, but it's kinda like when you use OpenDNS or similar and the transparent proxy (die die die!) gets all confused.

Rebooted router, tried different PCs etc.

I am so close to ditching TelstraClear right now, they are getting more and more rubbish every day.

Even videos were buffering or taking ages to kick off.

Maybe T/Clear decided they can't fix YouTube, so they'll make every site really slow so that nobody will notice :-/

I have an app on my iPhone that lets me listen to radio streams. Since yesterday morning it no longer works. Keeps telling me that I need an Internet connection - this when I'm connected to my home wi-fi LAN.

If I leave the wi-fi network range and switch to the VF network, it works.
