Every since Net Neutrality was repealed my internet has been acting up.

It's 99% something on YOUR side that's causing that. Check your connection, do a speedtest, make sure any cables are connected right and you didn't do any weird updates lately. Don't make threads that suggest the repeal of net neutrality is gonna be like that or anything, this isn't EoF.

it takes a long time to post even though my speed says it's fast. I haven't done anything new on my computer.

I got that message to for a temp page, then it went away and now the page works.
Temp is probably having problems. Not a NN problem since it hasn't been implemented yet.
I got this on several different websites since dec 14. I guess it's a coincidence.

It's probably all the porn?

Check your browser settings. My Chrome started lagging ridiculously overnight, and this is on a high-end custom gaming laptop that can run any game on its highest settings without dipping under 100fps. After some digging, I discovered that Chrome had silently installed an update, and in the latest build a particular setting that was intended to speed things up had a huge bug introduced that slowed things way down. Turned it off, and I'm back to normal.

How about other sites? Are they slow too? It might be your internet.

I must say, there have been some strange issues on my side of the pond too (UK), websites taking an age to load, frequent timeouts and buffering issues. I'm hardwired into my router, and my load balancing is reporting 14-20% packet loss. This is across two internet connections (Virgin and BT) and is doing it on all machines in the house.

Taking the router out of the equation makes no difference, similarly changing DNS to Googles, quad9 or even my ISP seem to have any effect. Tracert shows failures and loss outside of my network, and only when connecting to USA sites. So I think there's something dodgy going on somewhere.

I don't watch porn. I have updates turned off on everything. But it does seem like the problem is with gbatemp. I keep getting this site can't be reached message and the other websites are loading fine now.

Do you have something installed that stops scripts from running? Something like Noscript or Script Defender? If you do turn them off and browse normally for a day, it's possible your ISP updated their ToS and is browser jacking you, Charter did that to me earlier this summer and only this site and Reddit were screwed. Once I saw the ToS and accepted it all was fine.

My network connection dips sometimes without any reason, almost to the point of standstill. However, this was happening before the NN repeal. It's probably your browser or your router. If it is indeed because of the NN repeal, it may be some system changes in the ISP, however, this is highly unlikely. Best not to start shouting about NN about all your problems.

I havent got this problem. And as someone has already said it hasnt fully been repealed yet.

Also I would like to point out the other tab open in the original picture.
:/

If its what I think it says then could something like that be a virus to slow down internet?
