Network Latency...

Dear Experts,

Please help me sorting this problem out as I am not sure what's caused it and how to resolve it.  First off, our environment... Windows 2008 DC's single domain, and Windows 7 Professional clients via a bonded T-1 MPLS between the sites... a DC is located at each site.  The problem is some time, most of the time...for a few users that it take them a while...  some time up to 3 minutes to logon or open a file locally or from a file server at another site.  Please advise.  Thanks.

are you sure you are not saturating the T1's?  3mbps is not a lot of bandwidth depending on what the users are doing.  Carrier probably has tools assist as well, if your router doesnt
