It doesn't matter what device i'm on. S8, S10, PC. I'm sure i've griped about this before and it cannot just be me with the issue.

Update bookmarks, clear cache, etc. Many days it's a time out for a few attempts and after a while i make it here like an old beaten sea dog fighting through a wild storm in a leaky fishy smelling trawler looking for a wind free cove.

Other days i zap in like Donald Campbells Bluebird...the good one.

Whenever, which is weekly, i experience the issue, every other site i go to is fine, except here. What gives?

Mobile versus Wifi and home computer highspeed. Have seen is stall a few times but not many. Xfinity user with Blast Plus Speeds. Since
pandemic start they offer free wifi nationwide and throttle back my high speed to barely making the grade. Netflix of Prime always buffering.
But I still pay the same rate for what I don`t get. Time to start a class action.

Yep, happens to me quite often too.

That explains it, International cabling whether under sea or Sat. is lagging. To much use. Same here.

I had a difficult time connecting to SimHQ yesterday. For a few hours. The mobile version is brutal on my phone (a Pixel 3 XL) the ads take up half the screen, it's not mobile friendly.

To Many Zoom or what ever video chat you use, sucks up bandwidth big time.

I noticed it earlier too. It’s server side, not your personal connection. Either some server/database maintenance or perhaps bots slowing things down with too many connections at one time. Could be server bandwidth has been reduced to save expenses?

Nope biggrin I can be using messenger, have youtube playing, several other sites going and easily open plenty more with near zero delay. SimHQ and i'm back to growing a salty beard at least once and frequently more times a week. For a long time now.

We have four gaming pcs in the house now, mine, my daughters new one, son and daughters boyfriend. All mp gamers mostly, then add the mum in the room watching netflix or hulu and all is good. We do over a thousand gig a month on average when i checked about December last year with three pcs.

SimHQ is the most iffy site I visit, cable, wireless, different networks, no difference. But it's always worth coming back to.

worldwide bandwidth is at a premium. SimHQ regularly times out while loading, and is is always VERY slow

Interesting - I've noticed no difference lately. This site does seem to take a few seconds to load compared to most websites, but after that for me it's no different than anything else.

I am not of the instantaneous gratification generation so if it takes a few moments to load, it is no big deal.

At times tho it does not load, so I just go to another site and come back. It usually loads with no problem.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Same here. In fact, this thread just took 4-5 times longer to load than normal.

Hit and miss here. Sometimes slow or won't load at all. Other sites always fine.

Even with Adblock, I get the occasional unable to connect to http 90210 whatever....for hours. 100Mbs cable PC.

Sorry but the ads made it impossible to even use the site for me a couple of years ago, so I got Adblock. It occasionally causes me trouble elsewhere, more so lately, but glad I have it. I would happily donate $10-$25 a year to the SimHQ anti-ad plan if that is what it takes.

Really just not sure what works anymore or who is in charge??? Sad really, lots of history here...
