FTTC slowdown 17/02/2012


[link to this post]
 
Hi All,

Has anyone else noticed a drop in speed since approximately 3pm this afternoon? Latency has taken a hit and web browsing is painfully slow. I have a friend in the North East who is on Infinity and is also having problems.

No problems here in North Buckinghamshire (Infinity), but BT Speed Tester was 'Busy' and not accessible around that time or an hour or so before. Not tried again since.

I have just seen this on the Infinity status page:

"We are currently investigating a problem that may be causing slow or intermittent broadband connection. We are working had to resolve the issue and will update this message when more information is available"

Just to add the status page now says it will take an estimated 2hrs to resolve.

Yep, very slow. Some sites do work though such as this site but others take ages.

Yes ...

But only some sites. TBB is fine but BT's own are painful. US CBP and DHS are almost impossible to get a response from

The TBB BBQM is not giving any indication of problems here.
