Currently I cannot access some international pages, they aren't replying to pings either. However I can still visit these sites through Proxies. These include Rapidshare, The Witcher Homepage, Sciagnij. Almost seems like they are limiting/blocking traffic to these sites completely.

There's certainly issues with international speeds. Sometimes it's ok, sometimes it's unusable. Last night I was getting 300, then 2400 for a while, and now its back down to 800. So far I haven't hit a speedtest to LA that comes close to what I was regularly getting with my previous ISP, it's a pity their plans didn't work for me. Here's hoping that the promised resolution gets this sorted quickly.

As far as The Witcher and Rapidshare goes, I had no problems getting through to those pages so not sure what's going on there. Thanks for the heads up for the download of EE, looks like they've got some problems with that Sciagnij site download and server performance. There's a lot of forum comments complaining about it. Probably need to wait for a bit until the demand drops.

Cheers,
Mark

I have a speeds issue thread, post speed things there I guess.

Accessing sites was a problem for me off and on, seems I must use snap's dns otherwise my http requests do not always resolve >:(

My DNS was xtra's and orcons...
