Hi there

Why do I seem to have to wait for so long for some sites to download?

This site came up very quickly, but the home office site and links within it are taking up to 3 or 4 minutes per page.

Is there any way of speeding this up?

Thanks

what kind of connectoin do you have? who is your ISP? as in relation to the stagared speed of sites that is becuase they are hosted on different servers, and different servers have different connction speeds which translates, for the user, to different download speeds of diffferent sites.

hope that helps,

also you may find this tread of some use http://www.geekstogo...eed-t93490.html

The folks you write a check to once a month for internet, they are your ISP.
