I've been getting rather bugged by page load speeds of late - here and elsewhere. So I've been running a series of tracert tests at different times of the day to see where the problem might be.
Basically 10ms response time to the exchange connection, but from there the test on each point times out until I hit 126.96.36.199
Now speed issues are supposed to be on the international leg, but that seems to add between 300 & 350ms to the lag.
The problem for me seems to be local exchange-to-exchange. Now do you think I can tell that to Telkom? Well I'll try if they answer their friggin phones
