Is Hotmail slow or is it just me?

    Hi everyone

    I have been logging in my hotmail/live account for the past few days, and it has been extremely slow... Is it me or just Microsoft? :(

    Regards

    i think it should be your ISP problem or something, sometimes the IP factor does play a role in internet speed too. hope this helps

    I just checked my old account and it is working fine. I stopped using it because of Gmail. It is so much better!

    It's not that you have any virus, spyware on your pc? Or is it only the hotmail site?

    It's not your computer. It could just be that the server you've connected to has been full or you're just running into some bugs?

    For some reason Hotmail has always been slow for me. I switched to Gmail, no more of that slow business. It also helps that google is linked to Youtube which I use very often. Besides speed and ease of use, that was a reason I switched.

    This is happening to many at this time in the new mail, when returning to the classic mail it returns to normal. For some it was also happening in the classic since Hotmail has been doing upgrades and adding new features to the sites. It will go back to normal soon. :)

    As compare to google, yahoo and hotmail, hotmail is slower. But I have no problem in logging and according to the speed of my internet connection it works fine.
