[Internet] Slow to access websites, but not always....

http://www.kubuntuforums.net – Kubuntu 13.04, Chromium browser, Google search engine. Most things as they came out of the box. Sometimes, I can access a website almost immediately, but other times, it hangs and hangs. The "rotating arrow" in the tab label is usually rotating counter-clockwise, but not always.After a while, I cancel the request and re-try, sometimes several times. It didn't use to be like this. I assumed it was just network problems (I live in the country, with old telephone wires) but while I was waiting for this site to load, I tried it on my wife's laptop, beside me. Instantaneous! Same (HowTos)
