    Most likely just higher usage in general and on your exchange. Mom and girls going on Facebook, boys gaming like you and dad's surfing porn, I mean playing the stck exchange...

    I have an Afrihost 1Mbps uncapped account, and I haven't seen any latency jumps like that. So maybe it is you exchange taking more traffic, like DenSweeP said.

    You have a Capped Afrihost account, and all of them are unshaped, so it won't be a shaping issue from their side. Has this happened more than once and on different servers as well?

    Do you guys ever proof read the stuff you post online, kind of shocking finding all these typos everywhere.
