    Dial up speeds, and half the time a link doesn't load at all.

    I'd say it was at my end but I don't have any problems with any other sites and this one has been the same under two different providers.

    How does anyone even use it?

    Very quick for me. In fact it's the only site I can even load on my 10 year old iPhone 4.

    Fine for me, use it on 3 different devices, on WiFi and mobile data.

    User interface error maybe?

    Since this site was revaped I've been on hundreds of sites on three different computers and with two different providers nand this is the only one where it takes 10 minutes for a post to hit the board after click send.

    Odd.

    Perfectly fine for me, not sure what the problem could be. I'd start by deleting all browsing data: cookies, cached files and browsing history etc.
    If that doesn't work, look at your firewall and/or virus software. It's definitely your end mate, it's lightening fast for me and always is.

    Having thought about it, if you're trying on multiple machines, do you have virus protection from your ISP which maybe doesn't like this site?

    The fact that it's loading fine for everyone else would certainly suggest it is. I don't know what it is, but there are no problems with the speed of this site.

    It’s definitely your end. I live in a rural location with sh1te DL speeds and it’s probably the fastest site I use.

    Confirm. No problems for me. I have Virgin broadband and use my Samsung Galaxy mobile or
    4 th Generation Apple i pad to view or post any content. I have Virgins top speed broadband, so
    everything happens pretty fast as far as I'm concerned.

    To confirm, no problems here. Only time in recent memory when it did appear to go slowly was just after we got promoted and everybody must have been on here all at once.
    Otherwise fine.
