Network - 33% off, 3 day sale

Post by Darren Fricker »

Just got this from Network;

"Three is a magic number alright, for the next 3 days, everything on networkonair will have 33% off! "

Having trouble accessing the site at the moment though...

You're not the only one,Darren; weeks since it's worked properly-with all those bells and whistles-for me.
They were a bit slow with the announcement of this it seems.I'd have expected a PR to be posted here,too.

The Network site has been hugely slow today. I managed to get an order in but it took forever, I was able to boil the kettle and make a cup of tea before the payment confirmation came back!

Lucky you - I started searching for a title at 11:20pm and it went into my basket at midnight. At full price. So it, not so swiftly, came back out again. Poor show, Network.

I had three titles in my basket from earlier in the day and went back at 11.20 to have a final look - tried to add one more then the site just froze

despite several attempts at reloading the page and in 2 different browsers.


I must say although I like the layout of the site - on every visit it has been very slow to load.

I suspect that was it.

The site really struggles when there's a lot of people on it. It's happened often enough now for them not to be surprised when it happens.

I made three orders over two days and had no trouble at all. Is it a browser issue? I use Chrome.

Don't think so - I used iOS, then Firefox and finally switched to Chrome and had similar results with all three.

Definitely not a browser issue - I was on yesterday evening - it was painfully slow, but got there in the end - after slow choosing process, adding to basket took an age and credit card verification took almost 8 minutes to go through! Information technology - I love it.

No, it was fine first thing Friday morning. It struggled Saturday night and was virtually impossible on Sunday night.

Yes, friday, after receiving an e-mail from Network promoting the sale, I tried the site and it was fine. Two hours later through to saturday morning it was impossible to place an order and then it reached a state of calm for a couple of hours during mid saturday. I placed an order at that point and received this yesterday. Knowing that Network had stated that the sale applied to stock items only, I was surprised to find that an item had gone onto back order, with mention that it will follow later! Like others, I have not found the new site that easy to journey through at times. However, I still hold the company in very high regard, as they do make available some super material and have always been very helpful when I have communicated with them. Well done Network.
