Anyone else noticed a dramatic decline in their connection speed over the last few days?

Is it the weather?

who's your service provider? you may have exceeded your bandwidth! have you been on to check your usage?

Two days ago there was an 'outage' in Scotland that affected the North East; anyone using BT lines (which is just about everyone no matter who your ISP is) could have experienced a slow down. I rang my ISP to find out what the problem was and was given that information. It is now fixed.

Thanks merc, funnily enough when my friends had that trouble a week ago mine was unaffected? Last couple of days its snail mail early in the mornings? Takes ages just to load up e-mail never mind opening sites.

Nope, not back to normal. We seem to be limited to 2Mbps at the moment.

Try http://www.speedtest.net and post your results.

Tried that the other day, it took about 5 MINS to do the test!

Tried last night, it took about 30 secs?

Mornings used to be about the best time for speedy downloads now it seems evenings are?

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
