I probably should make a new topic (LOL) but what the hay... I have some feedback when I complained to my Internet Provider how s-l-o-w my "high speed" connection is to some sites... like Tomnod. But I need to say right away, I found it isn't Tn's problem! However, the route my signal takes out to CO makes little sense to me. I learned each "hand off" is called a "hop" and there are multiple "hops" between "you" and the site you're accessing. A "hop" is / are any company who is techie enough to handle major traffic from homes to the World Wide Web. Even small companies. Even teeny companies with lousy or over-burdened servers.
I'm in NE USA. On most requests to go to Tomnod, I go to Pittsburgh PA, then Altoona PA (whatever for is beyond me!), then St. Louis, then a suburb of St. Louis, then somewhere in Kansas, then out to Washington State (why? wrong direction!) to servers owned by Amazon if I remember right.... and finally, down to Colorado. The Washington State hop is the problem, with time outs and (Internet) traffic pile-ups.
Run a traceroute to see where you're going on your hops. Maybe you go to Washington too?
The very best time to Nod (for me) is Third Shift, midnight to 8 am. Second best, late evening 8pm to midnight, Eastern time zone.
And, it helps to go to -3, then read some mail... go to -4, then clean your monitor screen... go to -5 and do 50 push-ups, run a load of laundry, and hurry to clean out your snack cupboard... and before checking again, pray to the Amazon gods to let your signal fly through to CO without starting back at the Pittsburgh hop! I exaggerate, but if it's during western coast workday, arrange to take a 4-5 hour nap during the day while you wait. Have a 6 hour nap if your Anti-virus decides to run an update at the same time you're requesting to go to CO. I think an airplane flight would be faster, but I don't know if I could pick up WiFi from DigitalGlobe's parking lot. And the hops would probably send me to Pittsburgh first just to get into Tn. LOL
