I have just joined Telstraclear and I must say I am wishing I had stayed with Vodafone I have only been on the Telstra clear network for 1 day and I have noticed my Pings have gone from 40-50ms with Vodafone, and now I get 110-120 Ping with Telstra, I live in Hamilton so Ping the Auckland Severs. Surely the ping cannot be that different with a change of company?
I have used the Vodafone and Telstraclear speed test servers and both are reporting about the same pings.
also my down speed is about 3mb/s in morning and I am lucky to get 1mb/s during the evening as you can see from below test from Telstra speed test.
I only joined Telstra because I play a fair bit of Games online and need good pings to Aus and US servers, I was told by many of my mates that Telstra had great internet so I changed and now all I get is kicked from servers for having to higher ping.
Does any one know what can be done to rectify this??
I am using the modem that Telstra sent me, below are line speed reporting from router and bottom is what Telstra server gave me on speedtest.
