I have found that my Internet connection works much faster in the morning. And in the evening it works like a turtle, so annoying. What about yours, friends?

MyLot on Dial Up - MyLot on Dial Up like snail watching is an exercise in patience...
I have cable Internet. My connection depends on the weather, if it is snow, there can be shut downs or slowdowns because the info-structure in my town's not that great. If I am running a filesharing program or other application, I can be slowed down, and MyLot is slow at all times. I feel for anyone trying to use MyLot on a dial up modem! Talk about an exercise in patience!

Hello dear craftycorner. It is interesting to know that the speed has something to do with the weather. I did not know that. Yeah, you have mentioned one important thing about Mylot speed, which is so slow in my place in the afternoon and evening, but not in the morning. I do hope that Mylot will do something to make mylot work faster at any time for us to do more participation. Thank you very much for your response.

I connect to internet from both my company and my house. The company are using their corporate lease line the connection speed is superb so I seldom face connection speed when I surf net in the company. However, the broadband connection speed at home is only 512kbps and I could feel the speed difference during different time of the day. It's true that the speed is slightly faster in the morning, but it's still not bad at night. But when I open Mylot site, the speed difference between morning and night is much more significant. The peak time is at 12am. I have no problem viewing all the discussion content but I have issue submitting my own. It seems like it take forever for our own comment to appear in the discussion that we made response to. I hope Mylot could make upgrade or improvement to resolve this issue. Or else many will quit and I will lose a lot of friends in Mylot LoL.

Hello dear cheongyc. It is good to know that your Internet speed is great to you. But I have also the same problem as you have while mylotting, which is often very slow in the afternoon and evening. Last night, I could not mylot smoothly because of its being so slowing when opening mylot windows with no result and I had to leave it. Yeah, I think that Mylot will take some measurement to improve mylot opening speed, which could make us enjoy a very smooth mylotting time except in the morning. Thank you very much for your responses to all of my discussions, my great friend.

It seems to me like Mylot still having the processing issue. Because tonight and last night I still having the web page loading error 'web page not found', intermittently. But the night before last night (Friday night) the speed is excellent. I think it's because many people were enjoying their night and did not visit Mylot LoL. Luckily after several refresh attempts, and the copy and paste feature are enabled (after reaching 500 posts), I can still post my discussion, although it's a little more time consuming. You are welcome my friend. You have helped me to activate many of my old discussions as well.

I had no opportunity to check this point. Whenever I am working with internet, I always find it is quite fast, because I am using 256 KBPS unlimited Internet connection.

If you switch over to the fast connection (256 kBPS), I think your problems will be solved. In this type, there are two minor types of connections: Home plan and Commercial. Choose the homeplan.

Thanks for your advice, friend. I guess that it might be the reason that my laptop is too old, because the one my wife is using is new and works much faster than mine. I need to say that mine is about 6 years old. Thanks again.

Hello, my friend! I have never noticed wether my Internet connection was faster in the morning or in the evening, but now that you mention it... It looks like I can use the Internet easily in the morning! In the afternoon it's a bit more full. But it hasn't too much difference. It might just be something from my head, and perhaps it works the same the whole day, but I have this slightly impression that it works faster in the morning. Respectfully, Munhozmib.

Good evening, dear munhozmib. I discovered this long time ago when I became a mylotter in the first few months, because mylot window was always so slow, but not other sites. But now it seems that mylot has changed a lot because it seems to be working faster than before, though it is still the best time to use the Internet in the morning. Thank you for dropping by, my dear friend. Good night.

Very food question, I have the same problem with you my friend. I can work good with mylot every morning but in the evening its not worth posting discussions because my connection with mylot is too slow. Other sites is fine, maybe the line to mylot is congested, im not sure.

Hello dear friend. I am so glad that you enjoy lots of fun from the fast Internet speed in your part both in the day and in the evening. That really sounds very good to me. Now it is morning here in my place and I am also enjoying fast mylot speed, but not after dinner in the evening these days. Thanks for responding. Have a good day.

definitely in the morning too! I think that's because more people tend to surf the net at evenings so there's more traffic. unlike during mornings when a lot of people are still probably asleep and a lot do first their chores or whatever work they have to do in the morning so there's less internet traffic. and also in the evening people can't do anything much and usually they are just resting and waiting to sleep so what better way to pass time but to surf the net?? evening! ^__^

You have well analyzed this phenomenon of the speed of the Internet. It is true indeed that evening is the best time for people to surf online as they have finished their day job and it is their own time to allocate at home. Thanks very much for your wonderful analysis to this topic. I appreciate it very much.

I totally agree with you. I did notice these quite sometime ago. We are in the same time zone and this is the pick season common to us. So I try as far as possible not to surf net at this period. I rather occupy myself with some gardening at this time.

Thanks for your response. It seems to be always very slow ever since noontime. I love the speed in the morning, so fast. By the way, you have changed your avatar, huh? I remember it was a different one.

I don’t understand why the internet connection tonight seems to be very sluggish here. In my place there will be no problem during noontime. Oh, my friend you are quite observant. I did change my avatar which was a picture taken at the hill resort that I visited recently.

Thanks. I am observant because we have been responding to each other's discussions on different topics. I appreciate your going through my discussions and responding. Besides, I am quite used to the former one, which seems to be a deer or some animal alike. Even if it is now at 1:02 a.m (2007.07.04), the Internet speed is still working like a turtle, so slow. Guess you must be sleeping. Good night, friend.

Mine is always a lot faster in the morning. It seems a lot slower at night. I am under Comcast Cable I'm not sure if it is because there are more users at night or what.

So my case is not the only one. I am happy to know that. I have been thinking about the reason why it is much slower in the evening. Now I think that I have got the answer--there are more users at night as our users are back home from work and have enough time to surf online. Thanks for your response, friend. Good morning. It is Peking Time here 7:41 a.m

I have not noticed any significant difference between the speeds anytime of the day. It's always the same, I think because of an independent line. The same is the case with my friends too. none of us ever face a peak time or downtime. It's always the same no matter what...Although I have to say that some people have complained that this happens to them. But I personally never faced this issue.. bourne

So nice that you have not faced this issue so far. When it is a very slow speed, it is really very annoying to me, but now I am very happy that I can almost always enjoy a smooth speed because the situation has been improved a lot. Thank you for your response, dear friend.

My connection is better early in the morning. It crawls like snail in the evening. Slow till i can't log in to myLot most of the time. The place i live is an old area where the wire are mostly old and can't support faster speed.

Hello corngrass. I am so sorry that the wires are mostly old and cannot support faster speed. But I think that this problem will be possible to be settled if you users tell the admin about it. I hope that you will enjoy a faster speed sooner. Good luck to you, my dear friend.

although there is some improvement in many net speed during night because the offices are closed and so a lot of bandwidth is available but I particularly feel that there is not much difference in my Internet connection in whatever time I serve or down on I get a steady speed mainly because of a dedicated modern plus the service is very good. But the only problem is if due to some reason the connectionwhen they utterly sluggish in recovering from that but I guess it is the same with all service providers in my area.

it depends on how the internet was setup from your home to the "central office" (commonly seen and known as phone boxes somewhere outside/roads/highways/or even hidden)... sometimes, when there are simultaenous users of the internet, it becomes extremely slow. the reason why it works fast during off-peak hours is because there's not much of internet users during that time. Ü hope that answers your question, friend!

I don't think there is any difference in my internet connection, but when I had a dial up connection, I had that problem, because in mornings it was really fast and sometimes from noon to 2 pm I was really slow, now I don't have that problem and it is always good, I am really glad that since I got my broadband my internet is doing alright, because it is really upsetting when you need to check the email or something else on internet and the page delay a lot to load, the only thing that I dislike about my internet connection is that I can't do leave my computer downloading something at night because somehow the internet connection goes down, I think that my internet service provider is cutting my internet when they figure out that I am downloading something at night, anyway if I restart the computer or the cable modem it will work again.
