Hello folks

I am on TelstraClear and have frequently seen "waiting for tpnads.com" when loading ads on Geekzone. 

Is anyone else seeing this, and if so what ISP are you using? I just want to find out if this is a TelstraClear problem, their server having problems or general international traffic problems from New Zealand.

I was going to post that I haven't had problems, but a refresh of the homepage just gave me the same "waiting for tpnads.com" - on Slingshot, so unlikely to be a TelstraClear issue.

This has been driving me crazy in the last couple of weeks!!
We are on Callplus at work - I was seeing it very badly on stuff.co.nz - but not all the time.
Likewise geekzone (sometimes).

Sometimes pages seem to not complete for many minutes.... I had the suspicion that our firewall box was doing something bad - but I am not so sure - we get otherwise good speed (on ADSL) and the speed tests are usually very good as well.

Google-analytics often seems to cause a stall as well..

On my Telecom connection, around 80% of the time the ads do not load, 10% it loads a white box and the remaining 10% it will load the ad.

+1 on Telecom.

Causes some pages to time-out. Very very annoying.

I must admit though that it hasn't done it for the past week.
