Hey guys, just wondering if its just me or not.. When you log into your telecom account via www.telecom.co.nz does your usage look like mine with 0.0 on all. Heres what I mean.

Definitely not. It should show how much data you have accrued.

Okay thank you.. ill be giving telecom a call tomorrow when I can be bothered being on hold for 30 mins..

Do you think that this could be linked with my slow international download speeds?

Nope, the slow international download speeds is a problem with all Xtra Go Large users (your not the only one in this boat)

Anyways ill keep you up to date with whats going on.

:rolleyes: International Webs are usually slower. But European web is OK because European servers are really fast. P2P? Sometimes slow sometimes OK, but never really fast before.

To me it seem European servers are the worse.

speedtest sites dont give the true pic they may indeed give you a result showing your connection speed but that dont have anything much to do with your downloading speeds from any particular site..........i can get a pretty reasonable connection speed at speedtest.net or jetstreamgames.co.nz/speed but when I try downloading i can d/l from microsoft at really good speeds but anyone else about all I get is 30kb which sucks since my speed test will report a 3.5mb connection........i believe that xtra is severely limiting most downloads......it's really annoying.......

The Microsoft download servers (and some other sites) are hosted by Akamai. That's why they're fast. Akamai servers are usually peered directly to the ISP (in Xtra's case - Global-Gateway) - therefore the speeds will comparable to national speeds.

To find out if a download site is Akamai'ed, do a traceroute to the server.

Oh well, I think you choose the worst European Server like Czech Republic of something.
Ah, did I tell you about downloading things from French server?
