HellraiserNZ: Just got switched over to flip from bigpipe and before Orcon. The speed increase has been amazing! I was getting 900-1100 kB/s and now I get a constant 1900-2100 kB/S.
Thanks for the service hope it keeps this way!
Probably to do with moving from chorus UBA to callplus ucll. (Although that seems unusually large difference - what is your sync rate now/before? ) Seems risky though as that list could change anytime. How much stuff are you actually downloading?
Also, Why did you move with a month still to go on the bigpipe free trial?
Well I see no risk in moving, I was off contract from Orcon on ADSL and they botched back my VDSL upgrade so I moved back to ADSL off contract. Then joined bigpipe but the GF was not happy with no phoneline and I could not be bothered investing more into VOIP etc so I decided to bite the bullet and get flip.
I download using FTP/HTTP so I don't think any of those protocols will be throttled anytime soon..?
Don't know about the speed increase, originally orcon ADSL was at 14-15 mbps and then VDSL speed decreased to 12 mbps and then bigpipe ADSL was about 8-9 mbps. Flip is the fastest its ever been at this apartment.
