I have been experiencing a lowness in this site at times. So I decided to run a trace and see where the traffic is that is holding up my response times. Well it seems that from SA we are router through to London. Now this is where the speed drops. After London we are routed into New York and then to San Fransisco and only then to Autralia. I suspect we are being routed via London dew to a major line being damaged in New York (confirmed by Internet Solutions). So the problem seems to lie in London at the moment. As soon as IS get's the line back up and running again I'm sure our access in South Africa will be quicker.
