I just checked the setting and it was set to 'Server for Australia'.
However, I went deeper and found a useful option whereby all the servers
were "pinged" to find the best one to use and, surprisingly - or not

but another local ISP :-) . We'll now see if the thruput improves :-) .
In a period of great joy and pleasure you are comforted by the thought that tragedy is just around the corner.
