We've jsut moved our phone and broadband back to BT after 3 years with Sky. We had no problems with the broadband (other than the cost). Since we moved back (last Thursday) we've noticed a problem with certain websites: they struggle (and sometimes fail) to load. The worst cuprits are any of the BBC websites, the Daily Mail, CNN.com, iMDB and Amazon. The moment you hit 'Enter' it can take upto 10 minutes to load the page. Other websites - Marks and Spencer, Google, my company websites, Neflix, etc. load with no problem at all but the select few I've mentioned (or discovered) are a nightmare.
To give you an idea of the set-up at home: I've disabled both the 2.4Ghz and the 5Ghz wi-fi broadcasts on the BT Home Hub 4 - I use a 2TB Apple AirPort Time Capsule for the wi-fi connected via the Giga Ethernet port. The AirPort provides wi-fi to 2 iPads, an iMac, a MacBook, a Toshiba Satellite Pro laptop and a Nokia Windows Phone.
Since the problem started I've done the following:
None of these measures has made the blindest bit of difference. At completely random times the websites I've mentioned above fail to load (or struggle) whilst others are perfect.
Solved! Go to Solution.
