I believe it may be just yourself I have been online for a while checking stuff and it has been instant response to everything. I was playing around about 2 hours ago and broke the site a few times - I fixed it within 30-60 secs however. If other report something I can check however it has been instant for me. What ISP are you using.

Pesty,

No. Not from Yass. From Perth WA.
My ISP is AOL and I'm on dial up

Most times Exploroz is quick enough but just occasionally the speed disappears to the extent that it would be quicker to courier the keystrokes! I don't access the net in the arvo when the kids are on so it can't be that. Maybe I need to change to broadband. I hear Bigpond is not bad although the IT guy at work reckons Westnet is better.

G'day Pesty

I have been having similar problems of late. My ISP is a local bloke in Orroroo who deals with RBE in Balaklava with a phone connection through Port Augusta. Last week I had numerous drop outs and complained to my ISP. He rang everyone concerned and they came back saying NO everything is normal or their side. Must be my computer or my modem......Funny though since I complained about the slack service I have had no further drop outs. I have also cancelled one of my telephone lines(the one I used for internet so the problem could have been there)

I find that ExplorOz is fast in the mornings but slow in the evenings for me. Just have to be patient. Have explored options of ISDN etc but apart from a faster connection speed there is no monetary advantage. I'll stick with dial-up.

I had a theory when I was on Dial up that in the morning only us old buggers were on line and in the arvo the kids come home fron school and choke up the system with there chat lines, online games and other such crap!. Its funny too that small ISP operaters always blame "Your" computer for your problems..nothing to do with there small bandwidth

Alan, that is exactly what the trends of the Internet show. Good performance all round till about 3PM EST and then it drops off a little. I used to be very obvious. Now the major's have much more bandwidth to play with and this has greatly reduced the signs of 3PM EST. When I was living in Sydney in my last jobs we called it the 3PM factor.

And Alan is exactly correct when you are dealing with smaller ISP's (mind you some of the large ones are just as bad) in that they give out to the subscribers several hundred MB of commitment and only buy one 1/4 to 1/2 of the commitment level. You never know about it till you change service providers and see a difference.

And I thought it was just because we live in the real outback that everything is s..l..o..w..e..r. Anyway, who cares if Pesty's internet is slower - he's suck a fink. Good mind to send all the corellas (about 3,672 of them) down to his place to each his cables. So there. Take that.

Stop blaming Roachie - he might have started it, but only because you told him first. Anyway, lucky the McDonald Farm isn't around - they are conspicious by their absence - or goodness only knows what fabrications and embellishments there would have been.

Pesty I use Bigpond cable - I've had it for nearly 2 months and have never had a dropout or a slow time. It costs the same each month as my previous dial up and I now don't have call costs or the hassle of returning calls from the 101 message bank. Cable was also installed free (24month contract though) but at $29.95 a month with no dial up added costs it seems good value! Not sure if the offer is still on but many ISPs I'm sure will have similar deals to match it and cable is the way to go if you want speed. By the way a second phone line (which doesn't include ISP and dial up costs) now costs as much as a 200mb cable connection.

Hi Mick, I live in a small country town and broadband is not available, but I recently went to isdn with 128,000 bps and my isp is $29.95 mnth with 500meg download no contract, so my service is as good as I can get and most of the time it is good. We are 150 ks from the capitol city and I think the trouble is that the lines to Adelaide arent up to the task. 3 feet from my side fence is the Adelaide to Darwin and Asia fibreoptic cable, all I have to do is tap in there and I will be laughfin. Thanks Mick for the info.
