    Speed test's arnt that great, try downloading a file from microsoft to see if it hits your top download speed. But I have heard from a few friends that it is being pretty slow the past week.

    I'm based over here in Norwalk, California, and everything went down for a couple of hours. This is on 20/20 Fios. I could see that my router was picking up an IP, it just seemed like the gateway at the central office was having some major issues with the backbone.

    Probably that's what the problem is. Some downed backbone lines, and the internet will slow down pretty quickly.

    the pings look quite bad imo 234ms? wizard FINCHWIZARD might be able to give a slightly better insight afterall he's teh server goblin.

    my take? an outage most likely network issues in certain areas. ;)

    btw theres a section for networking and internet problems : http://forums.guru3d.com/forumdisplay.php?f=26

    Pings are high'ish, unless your outside the USA.

    Also make sure you aren't downloading or uploading anything at high speeds, because it will destroy any other results.

    Leave it for a few hours and if it's still having issues you could look on their website, maybe have a network outages section.

    I've got Verizon, and I get random slowdowns all the time. I'm pretty unhappy with their service overall, but they're the best value in my location. Bleh.
