Slow Broadband Can anyone give me any tips on slow BB speeds.The sites I visit are Stuff, NZ Herald , etc.Yet these pages just hang for no apparent reason for minutes on end.
Iam using a pretty old comp Dell 2400 Celeron)with a DSimth Router/MOdem. TradeMe is one of the few to load in a reasonable time . MY ISP is VOdafone.
Anywhere I can test my comp/modem/system or any suggestions on speeding this sytem up.TIA

First of all do a speedtest at www.speedtest.net. Have you reached your cap? Got any torrents running?

Whoa. Sounds to me like you've reached your cap and have been throttled. What plan are you on and how much data have you used this billing period?
