kerryland: Last night it was appalling. speedtest.net was giving around 1.5 down. I didn't know about http://speedtest.geekzone.co.nz/ but will try it tonight.


1.5down :'( 

Running all our tests from geekzone speedtest that uses their server for testing is a good comparison (common sampling for reference).

We should really split this off to a new topic re speeds. But I think I'll have to switch back to old ISP.. definitely not getting the performance I was. Not going well today

Hi everyone

The team is aware of some problems and we are currently implementing changes to solve them. I really do apologise for this, but rest assured we are working on it.

Don't be nervous. Problems seem to have been resolved, although I think they're a little slower than previous ISP I'm still able to download and stream video happily.

And it's costing me MUCH less than it used to.
