I'm about 2 km away from the nearest cabinet, and i can achieve about 10Mbps down from here:
That's lower than it was initially after switching to that cabinet, but blazing compared to what it used to be. (i used to be on the exchange downtown, much further away)
But if I do tests to the Los Angeles server here:
I'm getting speeds of about 3.8 Mbps down. Although I know it would never be as fast as the NZ speedtest, I'm pretty sure I remember this number being significantly higher last time I ran tests. I've also noticed overseas VPN, skype and streaming video all having issues lately.
Just curious, anybody else noticing reduced overseas speeds? Also, I saw in one of these threads someone complaining that Telecom kept turning on interleaving everytime he switched plans. Is a phone call the only way to find out if interleaving is on?
