Phone Company Hub Jammed, SMTnet speed affected| 21 January, 1999
Some may be experiencing problems with slow connection speeds to SMTnet, but I want to make clear that it is not our server that is causing it. The problem exists in AT&T's network, which I presume is clogged at this time.
If you want to check out for yourself, there is a simple trick to testing the network "path". At the command prompt in Windows (Start/Programs/Command Prompt), type: tracert smtnet.com. Where the numbers get big, that's where the slowdown is.
hopefully the phone company will take care of the problem soon, sorry for the inconvenience,
