I just did a speedtest.net test to a random server in CA, USA. It took three tries to load the page, but once I did I got 6Mbps down and 2Mbps up, 200ms ping. Another random CA, USA server gave me 5Mbps down, 0.36Mbps up, and 450ms ping.

Web pages seem a little better today, but it's not peak time yet.

i wonder if telstraclear's recent issues have been made worse by orcon switching to telstraclear.

any2ix is one of the two biggest internet exchanges in los angeles/san jose (you can connect in either) so will include a lot of traffic.

Surely the problem should be sorted by now. Still slow speeds for me, at times, when loading various websites such as nz.yahoo.com.

Just another vote for the "things are shi*e" camp here.

Will try and get some testing done tomorrow and see what patterns\info I can see (although it seems more able bodies in prior posts are already scrying the problem....)

Time to go grab the wise woman....

I think it's actually getting worse. International sites are timing out quite a bit tonight, facebook and photography forums. NZ sites like trademe and stuff are very fast as usual.

I can +1 on cable being bad tonight. I would ring the support team but I value my sanity too highly.

I am happy to say I will soon be moving to VDSL2+ connection and staying away from TelstraClear/Vodafone for ever.

Infact I've just given up on TCL. Have just had to move to Vodafone 3G to actually use internet...

Has anyone tried a VPN? I would, but I can't be bothered, I'll go to bed and try it tomorrow.

Holy crap my internet is slow. Living in the Wellington CBD and it's been running like a dog for the last 2-3 night.

How do I get out of a 12 month contract that I am 2 months into?

It is getting worse...(Cable anyways)...kind of weird tho as I am able to game in online games but not browse to international sites at an acceptable level.

Maybe this is another one of those "upstream provider" issues that TCL dont like getting involved.

Hurry up UFB so i too can ditch these jerks...

It appears that I can get good(ish) sustained transfers e.g. 2Mbit from California which, albeit 3x slower than usual is fine. Pings are also a tad higher than usual but still sensible around 180ms, and pretty consistent.

Yet page elements each take 2-4s to load on affected sites.

Is it possible for there to be some issue that could make establishing connections very high latency, without actually having too much impact on the throughput of said connections once established?? To load an image from my server in a browser takes 1-1.5sec to start but achieves over 2Mbps.
