cdn.steamcommunity.com and Virginmedia slowness

You may be experiencing terrible slowness accessing community features either in Steam or via. your browser at the moment. For those who haven't already tracked them down I'm posting two links with useful information although as of yet there isn't a definite solution just some things people have found a little useful.

Some people have got some joy of changing their DNS to Google or OpenDNS but these threads cover that.

Certain parts still seem to work fine but things using cdn.steamcommunity.com are causing problems for a lot of people with the Virginmedia ISP.

Virgin Media have given this problem a reference number which is for the record.

Noticed this too, checked earlier and found some people who have already contacted them about the issue.

Virgin posted that it was not them where the problem lies.

lol I ran a check and got 80% drop-out on a Virgin relay connection, strange how they say they have fixed it now, despite the original message of it is not Virgin :)
