Data stalls and email timeouts.

I thought I had got away from this but my connection (NTL) on the 0808 dialup (5:1) is having all sorts of data stalls. Downloads are stopping and starting, email is timeing out, chat services are stalling, all whilst still being connected. Anyone else having problems or is it my POP again ?

Don't think it is your POP - same problems here (10:1 contention), although not so severe as your problems by the sound of it.

However I should add that we are having even worse problems with our PAYG Virgin.net connections and especially e-mail - the latter has been almost unusable for several days now. I raised a technical Support query via the Virgin web site and it took 24 hours for the automated reply to get to my (Clara hosted) work e-mail address I gave for contact. I'm still waiting (48 hurs) for a reply from a human being. Read elsewhere on this site that they (Virgin) are having a lot of problems with virus infected e-mails.

Same with Clara?

Update

Been told to use tracert to the clara resolver when the data stalls heppen, but this has only lead to the problem appearing to be either their dialup modem or mine.

Tech support told me to switch to the backup number 134*** to see if it happens on that line and so far its been ok so it must be the main dialup number gone wonky.
