Hi everyone, is that only me or someone else too.... I'm still on old DSL plan (had to roll back from DSL2... but that's another story...) and the last week or so everything is running so sloooow. Overseas pages are hopeless all day, NZ sites are ok(ish) outside of peak hours...

It's all Slingshot,  I called the helpdesk yesterday and got a call back today about the issue.

Call the helpdesk 0800892000 and try and get the fault logged as the more tickets they get the quicker they can sort the problem.  National sites are fine, international sites are failing.
