Thread: Starhub speed down?

  1. #1

    Default Starhub speed down?

    Hi guys,

    Just wondering anyone experiencing extreme slow network? like it takes tons of time to load windows update. And lots of other websites i frequent takes much loader (except for clubsnap)

    I even tried accessing the net on my laptop (Fresh Winxp) but accessing windows update and other sites are just as slow.

    I am on direct connection to the cable. Living in west side of Singapore.

    Anyone got any idea? or numbers i can call to clarify with starhub? Or is it normal?

    Regards,
    Leeter

    perhaps you could test your net speed?

    http://www.speedtest.net/

    i think its quite accurate. if i'm not wrong, when there are alot of users, the whole thing will just slow down regardless of speed.. so perhaps you could let starhub know and they might send a technician down to check..

    Aiyoh.. windows update sites ah? I just set my auto update off. CMI! Because once MS rolls out a new update, the whole world's windows PCs (I can't imagine the number) will be trying to access the site for updates!!! Of course slow lah!

    I've been getting slow speeds over the past couple of days too, especially over the weekends. I realised (for me at least) that speeds are best before 9am on Sat and Sun mornings... not sure if it'll be the same for you. Guess as more people log onto the fat green pipe, the fat gets spread too thin...

    Kind of feel upset with slow speed... esp when gaming..... lag, and lag...
