    There was no slow down at all when all of Brazil joined when the Brazilian government blocked whatsapp.

    Russian developers man...
    Also they helped with the load balancing when pokemon go released.

    The founder made the Russian Facebook. He has made his money and now wants to keep impressing Snowden...

    this is all of us in the same room. on the same wifi.

    I got a response, and sent a gif before the whatscrap came though.

    and the recent noticeable slowdown has most likely been due to the server side changes Facebook is forcing whatscrap to make in order to push marketing to its users.

    not saying you should switch, but it will definitely make your life easier.
    Yep that's cos no one uses it. So there's not traffic slowing it down

    100 million active users and 15 billion daily messages is not nothing. As mentioned, during the Brazil Telegram invasion the network didn't miss a beat.

    Telegram is a much more lightweight app than WhatsApp - it makes sense that efficiencies would be present elsewhere in the organisation.

    Well telegram just added voice calling and we should get it soon. Now there is no excuse to stay with WA.

    Bollocks, happens on iPhone as well.

    Sorry for reviving an old thread but for the past month or so I've been having an issue with Whatsapp traffic going through when my phone is connected to my wifi at home and my ISP is Mweb. As soon as I switch to my mobile data connection everthing works fine. The problem also only seems to happen at night times...
