I have Telecom Broadband Pro package (FS/FS) synched at 8.7 Mbps.
My problem is that any time I go to a website (like Geekzone) that links in other services (like Google analytics or ads) my browser (FF 3 is preferred) starts to retrieve the page then just hangs until I refresh 2-3 times at which time I presume that enough cache has been filled that it continues onto the real content. If I go to a web page that doesn't have all those linkages (like our homepage) it comes up straight away.
I was just slightly annoyed and contemplated regressing to FF2 because several people are reporting other issues and I assumed this may be related; until, that is, I sat down and tested all my browsers which are Opera, Safari, Chrome, IE, and FF (all latest versions).
It appears to be consistent and Opera has the good grace to tell you how long you are waiting. It took 1:05 minutes to load the Forum topics page.
I am not sure now where the problem lies.
Anyone else getting behaviour like this or have any suggestions? Or is this just the state of life these days loading congested pages on an overloaded information superhighway?
OS is XP Pro on laptop wireless connection to 3Com 11g modem/router.
