Is anyone else finding that Facebook is running REALLY slowly, and has been for the past few days?

Have you bee installing 1000 applications per day?

Then you are the lucky winner of the slowest-site-on-earth prizes! :eek:



its always been slow if you have alot on your profile and with more people joining every day it will get even slower if they dont up their resources

Last few days my FB won't even login when I'm on iBurst and don't tell me that's due to any apps. Works like a charm though on 512 ADSL.

My facebook has been dead slow since about 3 days ago. And so has my rapidshare account. Both run super fast on Vodacom. iBUST are definitely up to something here.... So the apps on the profile have nothing to do with it.

Facebook is prob one of their most accessed sites, and rapidshare is where the most traffic gets pulled down from. It only makes sense to expect this excuse of an ISP to throttle it. The day there is an alternative, i'll be the happiest customer to leave them!

Another slow one here, I also seem to have the weirdest issue with browsing, not sure if its iBurst, but I've turned everything off on my ClarkConnect box (Squid etc) and a lot of my pages are constantly refreshing. They download a couple kb, then restart, and again, and again, and again... Thankfully this page stopped refreshing. Happening on both my machines, in IE and in FF.

You were trying to look at naughty Minki photos weren't you? :rolleyes:

ADSL has also been slow with facebook and a few other sites today.

I could hardly open a local forum (hosted overseas actually) while a friend on iBurst had no problems. :/ Internet in SA...
