my provider uses the LanCity too. Currently there are about 50% 
package loss connecting to hosts outside the providers network. 
That should be another problem, as it seems the loss starts at the 
gateway to the local internet exchange point.

For some reason telnet is suffering even to hosts at the same 
subnet, so I use a standard modem connection instead of the 
"broadband" connection.

The company is UPC/Chello/Telekabel here in Austria. It seems they 
have samiliar problems everywhere in the world they are doing 
business, I just did not know that so many "broadband" providers 
have the same problems (there is a second "broadband" provider 
here in Austria that is not much better)
