Now everything works perfectly - no drop in speed (the Draytek can handle 50Mbps, and my link is normally around 30Mbps) and webpages now work properly - fingers crossed it stays that way!

Well I gave up on the VPN in the end.

That might be where AAISP's L2TP service comes in useful, as this looks as if you are a broadband customer of AAISP, rather than using a VPN. Note it is not encrypted.

Thanks - will check that out.

Just ordered the 2TB/month service, which was incredibly quick & easy. Then stuck the details into the Draytek 2860 and I was up & running (the WAN / LT2P page).

Now the internet works like it's supposed to!

The page hanging problem seems particularity rampant this morning. I've tried changing DNS servers but its not going away, seems to be a packet loss problem across the core of the three network.

can you try WinMTR to see where the packet loss is, maybe report here or on the three website..

Getting upto 100% loss on hops 2,4,and 7 to numerous websites currently.
Hops 5 and 6 see between 30 and 10 % packet loss.

100% loss is for the hops which dont reply to the pings (like firewalls)
the hops where it shows the domain name/IP - look for the loss there, thats where the packet is dropped due to congestion?
thats your arsenal to complain to THREE

Can you post the website you were trying (assuming it's not sensitive information). I will try and corroborate.

Have PM'd you those traces. I'd say there's some packet loss there.

Also of note is this speed test I've just done.

4g+ 35Mbps down 2Mbps up (bands 1 and 3)
4g 46Mbps down 28Mbps up (band 3 only)

Go figure!

The ICMP ping packet loss in intermediate hops is irrelevant. That doesn't tell you whether or not they are dropping "real" traffic.

Do you get packet loss from the website you are trying to use ? (if it responds to ICMP pings)
