Have you made sure that you are using the assigned DNS servers from Telecom - and not using either Maxnet's still - or something like Google DNS?

You should definitely use the DNS servers from your ISP. In our case, not using them will cause worse performance on Youtube.

It's possible too that it's a congestion issue as Paul is half suggesting. That would likely be a Chorus issue though.

Finally, I can confirm, as I have done many times, that Telecom is not shaping broadband traffic. Slowdowns will be due to issues (to be fixed), congestion (sometimes out of our direct control) or individual customer issues like wireless performance, wiring degradation etc.

Cheers - N

Based on our comments it would indicate you're on a Conklin DSLAM that's at capacity. The vast majority are in rural areas and are being upgraded as part of the RBI project to new fibre fed cabinets with ISAM's in them.

If this is capacity issue on a Conklin there is nothing anybody can do so immediately fix the issue and the same performance issue will be affecting every ISP, not just Telecom.

There are currently multiple active threads on here discussing speed issues of Conklin DLAM's, and it's becoming an issue now that broadband caps are increasing. The only real fix is to find out who of your neighbours has recently started sucking all the bandwidth causing the slowdowns!
