      Choke!

      Getting odd stuttery broadband in the Wolverhampton region from about 4pm today. Youtube videos only sporadically download bits (sometimes refreshing gets another couple of minutes, before it tapers off and stops), internet radio is playing for a minute or two and then buffering, podcasts don't download in iTunes.

      Very odd; nothing seems to have changed, and I can stay on online games without being thrown off. Anyone else seeing similar 'spikes' on things today?

      Oddly enough, happened while just posting on the thread as well - in the bottom of Chrome, a 'Sending Request' message appeared and stayed for a good 30 seconds, with nothing happening. Hit the submit post button again, and I get the forum message saying it was a 'duplicate' (i.e. it HAD posted successfully!)

      It seems that things are just getting lost at the moment - but not with EVERYTHING!

      Re: Choke!

      Driving me insane now Downloads working fine, I can play Lord of the Rings Online with no lag or problems - yet youtube videos just queue up a small bit and die, and I only get a few minutes of streaming radio before it states 'buffering' but never catches up again - yet hitting STOP and then playing again works fine.

      Something's getting lost along the way! Could this be a sign of congestion at the exchange?
