View Full Version : Anyone else's ADSL on a go-slow?

Telecom, Orcon and TS.

All below 1.2mbit/sec speedtest to wellington and auckland, downloads down to between 30 and 60 kbytes/sec.

Started around 3.45 pm.

Just me, or is anyone else having odd issues?

Just did another speedtest (http://www.speedtest.net/result/493265554.png) to Auckland... :eek:

This (http://www.speedtest.net/result/313686310.png) is what it's normally like.

Hmm, no issues over there Gary!

Nice speed too.

Yeah not bad, which is a good thing have some stuff I want to download tonight, such as Ubuntu 9.04

No problems here (http://www.speedtest.net/result/493294546.png) - in actual fact it's faster than the speed test I did on Sunday at 1am :lol:

When's your area getting ADSL2+?

We are already supposed to be on it here in Nelson not sure about Motueka where Wratty is

I reckon that the problem often is nothing to do with the local loop and ADSL -to explain – if I use the ISP tool to check the local loop speed I am likely to get something like 6,487kbits per second or nearly 811kbytes per second. But the reality is when I am doing downloads, the speed seldom gets anywhere near this figure – and in fact can be less than 10kBytes per second at times. The implication is of course that there are bottlenecks in the system other than the local loop.
