Maximum package, 500GB bandwidth. We use to get AMAZING speeds, just lately, over the past 3 days, I can barely hold a Skype call with my girlfriend which is currently in America. She can't even hear me, and it's even worse if the webcams are on.

We use to get 12ms ping, now it's a little under 300 at all times. With terrible speeds. I use to get 17mbps download, 1.5mbps upload. Now:

Have you checked the wiring in your house??

If you email me pl at telecom dot co dot nz I can run a line test... but I would put fair money on the fact you would need a Master Filter.




I work for Telecom, but as always my views are my own.

Well, telecom already ran a line test, and it seemed fine. Masterfilter? it's been running fine up until now.

Could be a line fault. Try an isolation test first (search this forum to find what an isolation test is).

And thats the point, if you dont have a master filter you have the ability to unknowingly screw with the DSL signal by some seemingly harmless plugging in of a phone device.

Thanks. I disconnected every single connection to the line in the house, besides the modem, rebooted, and it's still the same results.

I'm guessing line stats, you mean ASDL2+? Well if so, it's ASDL2+. I'm located in Auckland, Botany.

That's the weird thing. When I took the test. I'm the only one home. I don't use torrents. Nothing is downloading. My laptop is the only laptop on, and even after a reboot, it still remains.

Confusing.

Still waiting for that email to me with your home phone line so then I can say it's a problem with your wiring.

Not quite, but close. You'll need to log on to your modem, and see what the connection stats are for the DSL connection. Should be a couple of sync rates, attenuation, and noise margin.

Given it's a laptop, are you using WiFi or ethernet (wired) connection to your modem?

If using WiFi, stop, then try wired before doing anything else.
