Is it just me or is anyone else suffering for Telecom being xtra slow?

It's been about two weeks that I haven't been able to get a download at a decent speed... Right now I am getting a 30ish KB/s download.

I'm on Telecom's Adventure plan. Supposedly getting 20 gigs a month. At this rate I would be lucky to get if I was downloadig 24/7 for a month.

Anyone else?

Edit: Just ran Telecom's Speed test...
"Your line speed is approximately 399.8 Kbps or 49 KB/sec"
What a pathetic joke.

Gone over your data limit for the month?

Nope, under 10 gig last months. New month started last night, no difference.

Try this:
Goto speedtest.net and run a test with Auckland & Tauranga

Now, click Start --> Run --> cmd
Type the following int the new window: ping -n 10 trademe.co.nz
Post back the min, max, average and packet loss

Then, do the test again 3x a day in morning, afternoon & late night for the next few days, post back each day :)

Sometimes, if the first day of the new month is a weekend or public holiday, your speed isn't reset until the next working day. I know it happens with Vodafone.

Xtra promised you Broadband, you assumed that meant FAST?
Never wind the speed, measure the width.

Just did a test here. About what I normally get from Telecom so not slow as such.

It's fast and steady as usual from here.

Called up Telecom support, whined for a bit.

They told me to reset my modem and presto. Back to decent speeds.

"Your line speed is approximately 2144.1 Kbps or 262.8 KB/sec".

Not too bad, should have a line capable for ADSL2 by the end of the year.
