Giantbomb has been pretty terrible during peak hours ever since the memberships started. If I come to Giantbomb early in the morning or super late at night the site will max my connection out at 2 MB/s and I have no problem watching HD videos. But if I come on any time between noon - 3 am EST I'll only get about 100 kb/s, so I can't even watch high quality videos without having to buffer for quite a while. Having paid for a subscription to be able to watch HD videos, this is pretty disappointing. I also tried to watch a couple videos on Screened and Tested with similar results.
It's not my connection, using other sites/services I can still max out my connection any time of the day.
My ISP is Bright House Networks / Roadrunner, Vista, WRT54GL Linksys router... got a Logitech keyboard. I use FireFox 3.6.10, and have also tried Chrome and Opera, the site doesn't work at all in DOS.
Just did a speed test with a server in Cali. http://www.speedtest.net/result/963871370.png
Downloading a video from GB going at 30kb/s now.
Help me Whiskey Media, you're my only hope... for quick looks.
Has the site been running really slow for anyone else? Ever since the BLLSL the site has been running pretty slow for me. Trying to watch videos in HD is almost pointless because my connection from gb tops out around 80kb/s.
Just curious if anyone else is being affected or if I'm all by myself here.
