Browsing the net has slowed to a crawl. Waiting for browsers to complete loading is a pain. I've just called Streamyx 2 days ago to report this problem. I thought initially that this was due to some faulty line near the Middle East, according to the announcement before I got connected to their TS. However, after checking my address, the person attending to me said that my area was completely fine. In fact, speed test on the net shows that I'm getting a download speed of 1.5-1.7 Mbps, more than the speed in my package. For some reason, the upload test couldn't commence though -_-".
Anyhow, after a series of checks and changes in my internet settings over instructions on the phone, things haven't improved. The report was filed and yesterday, they called and said the tech has 'fixed' something on their side. When I got home, still the same shit going on.
I've re-started the modem and PC many times and tried reconnecting countless times, to no avail. If nothing was wrong on their end, it would either be a problem with the physical line, modem or the network port on my 8-year-old PC. It might even be my PC's declining performace (she's about to die I think). Yes, she's also joining into the fray of the lagging business lately. It doesn't matter since I'm planning to finally get a new one by next week hopefully.
I'm just gonna keep complaining until they send a tech over to take a look. Crippling the net is like taking air out of my lungs T.T
