Long Delay loading Webpages

SOLVED Go to solution
Level 3

Today my web browsing on any site including TPG web pages is taking a very long time to connect to then load. I don't seem to have any problems watching STAN or NETFLIX. I have two PCs and a few Laptops here as well as smart TV and all are having problems loading web pages.


I have turned off the modem for 5 minutes and checked if any network cable was not plugged in correctly then turned the modem back on, and I am still having this problem.


I tried the TPG speed test and it says my NBN 100 download speed is 0.6 and upload speed is about 35.0. I dont understand how I can stream STAN in 4K but only see a 0.6 download speed.


More tests on the TPG speed tester report socket error on the upload test.


I have an Unlimited 100 XXL plan, I can not imagine I have been speed capped, but it sure looks like to me. Service Status page at the moment doesn't show any faults in my area.


What can be wrong.

Found the issue. Bullguard Internet Security seems to have a buggy update. With the virus checker uninstalled all netowrk speeds are normal. Bullguard support are working on a fix.

Hi @skozzy good to hear you've sorted it, with regards to the socket error during upload test on the TPG speedtest, I've found that clearing the internet cache / temporary internet files fixes that.
