Hi,

I've been having issues in the last 2 months where my speeds get really bad in the evenings. I'm with Mweb and I have tried other sample ISP accounts. I have a 20M line and sometimes the ping to www.mweb.co.za times out or is at about 2 seconds. During the day, it is usually fine with the odd hiccup so I think it is the exchange.

I'm in Sunset Beach, how do I find out what exchange I'm connected to and who do I complain to?

Traceroute gives this:
