Default Very slow connection

Of all the various forums and websites I visit, Casebook is by far the slowest to connect. Sometimes it can take 15 minutes before I get a full connection. It seems to me that this is possibly caused by the ads. Even when apparently fully connected it can sometimes take a long time for my posts to be uploaded. I am satisfied that my PC is not at fault as I don't have this problem with other sites I visit. Any ideas, please? Thanks.

Graham

This site always loads fast for me. Never had any real or noticeable problems. I wasn't aware this site ran ads but I do have adblock which I've noticed has blocked 5 ads. Maybe it's the ads themselves that are the cause?

Have you installed an ad blocker addon to your browser? Try adding one and see if it speeds things up.

My connection speed is fine, pretty fast in fact.

Are you using a VPN perhaps?

Depending on where the VPN server is, it can be slow for some sites.

I've tried Casebook with and without Ad Blocker - it's just slow. Like I said, I regularly visit loads of websites and discussion forums, and have no problem with any of them. Only Casebook. Haven't a clue why. I just have to be patient, I guess.

Hello Graham

There will be several hops from here to the other side of the Atlantic and back - here's a "traceroute" I just ran, which shows just about half of them. Note the different timings for each hop on the right, in milliseconds:

If one of those hops lands on a dodgy router, those milliseconds could become seconds, and your browsing experience will suffer as a result.

Sam, thanks for this, and I hear what you're saying, but I regularly access loads of US and Australian websites and discussion forums, and not one of them is as slow as Casebook. It's not a disaster for me, just a mild annoyance, that's all. I'll live with it. I was just interested to know if anyone else has this problem.

Surely, signals being picked up in Wales will have to have travelled back in time about 120 years.....................??????????

Ta,

Graham

Different connections can, and often do, take radically different routes - especially over long distances. I just ran simultaneous traceroutes to the Casebook and JTRForums websites, and the paths are very different:

Casebook is the top half of the image, JTRForums the lower half.

OK Sam, thanks. I suppose I'll have to bin and grear it. A friend tells me he has precisely the same problem with a discussion forum based in Canada - everything else he visits is OK.

Sorry about the crap poke at Wales.....

Graham
