All good on junction of TBR and Tooley Street.

Give BT's speed checker a go and see what it reveals.

Checker is here.

Mine (SE16 by the Blue) was slow for several weeks before the Olympics, but seems fine now! Maybe it's a rolling thing...

Definitely seems slower in the afternoon than in the morning for me.

Is it during the day? I would imagine alot of people are working at home. Mine tends to slow down on a Sunday evening.

Funny you should mention it, I was just complaining that my computer is so slow...interested to hear that it's not just me.

I think it's all the people streaming Olympic video content. I must confess I'm guilty of that.

My broadband connection at Southwark St is slower than usual since the Jubilee weekend.

Well, got me off using my laptop as a telly and back to my bookshelf. So not all bad.
