For some reason on both Google Maps and AA maps they are taking forever to load especially Street View.
Any ideas why? Other Web Sites load fine.Cheers.

I've been experiencing similar issues for about a month, but it seems to be less buggy when I use the .com site instead of the one. Not sure why they would behave differently or if my sharing this is of any help to you, but I'll be interested in what others have to report.

Cheers & g'luck

first thing to confirm is whether you are using the ISP assigned DNS servers or not. You should always use the DNS servers assigned by your ISP and not 3rd party DNS servers like Google DNS.

Second thing to note is that there are changes afoot right now that may improve the situation if you are just seeing issues with Google services. Timeframe a couple of weeks.
