Whats going on with the net today?

Whats going on with the net today?

- Freeserve people can't get on the net
- MSN Messenger Service down for most of the day
- Most sites slow and unresponsive

Anyone else had any other problems to add to the list??

yes. With freeserve & downloading web sites I tried eight times to get onto internet thi svening Outlook expresss seems ok. I suppose many people are back at work today so are clogging up the system. If Broadband clears this I will be the first to sign up.

Looks like auntie beeb has some problems today, pages loading very slowly. When I try to download the first episode of "His Dark Materials" (which I missed on Sunday) it just keeps coming up with, "you may be experiencing network problems". Not me mate, everything else is hunky dory. Why is it that all these error messages suggest that it is always our faukt?

Telewest Broadband fine - although just on site - holiday company - sloooooow. Get broadband - before it gets you. It is worth every penny

Cheers guys,

Rub it in, why don't you. Broadband? We've only just switched on to electricity here in Wales!
