I'm with Sky Unlimited and get a good connection:
DownStream Connection Speed 18945 kbps
UpStream Connection Speed 1137 kbps
I am however getting pages loading slowly and dropouts in online streaming with iPlayer/YouTube etc.
Have changed filters, checked router in master socket etc etc
When I ping then tracert something, the first hop (after the router) of the tracert is always "request timed out" then it starts to resolve.
Each hop resolves in approx 30ms give or take the odd 50ms and some of the other hops time out but that could be general internet server busy stuff?
Why would the first hop always timeout and could that be a cause of my dropouts and slow loading web pages?
If so, how do I go about resolving it?
