HiNet is always slow – my 512/64 K connection actually averages about 340/40. So, I’m getting what 60-odd percent of what I pay for, right?

When it suddenly or progessively slows down, a judicious restart can be just the thing. Sometimes not.

A knowledgable friend tried tracking the problem down and it seems to have something to do with how IPs are assigned. However, HiNet’s massively cludged network deterred him from pursuing it further and probably deters their own engineers from actually sussing out what’s going on.
