    Anyone else experiencing problems?

    Today is OK, but I noticed yesterday all US sites were really slow including Elite Trader.

    Probably sharks eating through the transatlantic cable!

    I usually like to check

    http://www.internettrafficreport.com/

    But even that was buggered yesterday!

    That is working right now for me.

    Must be something wrong with your ISP. Who are they?

    Why not try ping or tracert (in a command prompt window) through to www.internettrafficreport.com

    See if any hops are not responding etc.

    As a comparison I get an average 165ms using NTLworld Broadband via ping and tracert shows 30 hops of which the last 13 show "request time out". This is generally not good but at least my ISP is working as the first few hops are OK.

    Interesting!! im using NTL as well and another trader in Nottm has the same difficulty!

    Oddly, i could ping the IB site ok but couldnt get their web page to open?

    May give NTL a ring and see if they can shed any light on it but they take so long to respond!!

    Anyway thx for the response!!

    cheers
