Anyone else on Surfwise variety experiencing buffering on You tube and "slow loading" on some other sites?
I did email support about the performance before xmas with a load of traceroutes and noting that I my line sees a lot of resyncs (the subject of a previous ticket) Commenting that timesouts were occurring around hop 8 I had hoped for a more positive response than "your line speed is appropriate to to your sync or is there something else you are trying to tell us."
I decided to leave it till after xmas... but now Im going to be on the case aagin. My line resyncs several times a week, since Openjoke changed the pair between the cab and exchange my maximum morning sync has dropped from the low 10k to high 8 k and the line seems just as unpredictable as it was before, dropping at random times and periods.
Ive not used the voice line for months as I have unplugged everything except the router, I got a Fritzbox 7390 which behaves exactly the same as my previous modems, this line dropping issue has been present from when I first had broadband - I think after 10 years I am due a fix. its only a 3 km line! Ive done everything except move house! There is no wiring connected beyond the master socket, most of the neighbours close to me have changed over the years I have been here (much of this street is owned by by to let operators) I have chnaged most of the electrical gizmos in the flat over the last 10 years...
Today youtube is back to buffering, watching an old information film.. every 3rd or 4th word has a pause after it while the clip buffers.
