There are no problems with our servers at present nor with our hosting facility which is top class.
We do know, however, that there have been very severe problems apparently within the eircom network which are plaguing people with dial-up connections.

At home we have experienced this problem ourselves and have written a letter of complaint to eircom support service including a bandwidth graph to illustrate the problem. We have received no reply - not even an acknowledgement.
The email address for eircom customer service is:
