Re: Pages not loading until refresh

sorry to say guys this issue isnt down to dns.  Way off the mark.

 

Like the OP I have the issue and its limited to google owned sites.

 

So....

 

 

google itself (although since the page is light its not that noticeable).

youtube (very noticeable, eg. have to refresh for video to start playing).

google play (huge hang before downloads start, with it been google play app cant force refresh so very annoying).

 

So I have confirmed issues with google on multiple devices.  Of course changing dns has zilch affect.

 

If I use a proxy server to browse google sites, the issue goes away, even when using the same dns lookups.

 

So my gut guess is one of 2 things.

 

1 - google changed something on their servers and this has upset some BT equipment in BTs network which reacts badly to it.

2 - BT are doing something funky with the traffic, DPI or something and thats causing this problem.  I hope this isnt phorm take two.

I have had the issue with:

 

My own web site through Weebly

 

macworld.co.uk

 

macworld.com

 

forum.xojo.com

 

to name but a few.

 

So, can you explain please what you mean by Google owned sites? and how it relates to what I am seeing?

 

Phorm, please don't mention that here, BT may have a fit:smileylol:

 

All the best

I mean I am only seeing it on sites hosted by google, eg. google own youtube.

 

do your 3rd party sites use google advertising service or analytics?

 

Of course if seeing it on 3rd party sites as well I do believe you, there may be a reason I am only seeing it on google and you not (different routing eg.).

 

right now those sites you listed are working for me.  But google sites are not.

 

Its important to realise if you ever have a problem with any website it may be a completely different issue altogether.

 

The symptoms on this problem are not it 'sometimes' happens, its 100% of the time and a simple refresh resolves it.

Re: Pages not loading until refresh

I'm seeing it on Twitch.TV, the preview images take forever to load, but the streams are fine. Work that one out.

 

I have tried swapping to Google DNS and Google loads more often than not now, but there's definitely something wrong.

Re: Pages not loading until refresh

does it resolve on a refresh, if no its not same issue.

 

people please dont jump in here when its not the same problem.

 

"some site slow to load" does not equal same problem.

 

The issue is images/videos not loading at all not slowly but not at all, and then on a refresh it loads instantly.  Its confirmed to be google only by users on other forums.
