I changed from AYCE to 100GB plan when they put the price up. Have had master splitter thing installed last year when we were on snap. Last I heard was I need to change modem which is bs as it was never a problem before moving to slingshot. At the end of the day slingshot can not provide a reliable service where I live. However I am moving at the end of the year so no point jumping ship to land in another contract somewhere else. I will just have to put up with this rubbish until then. Looking forward to seeing the back of them to be honest.

AYCE





For some reason, I tend to get better speeds from LAX (Internode) compared to San Jose (Internode), even though the ping is slightly worse to LAX.

It shouldn't be news to anyone that the ISP with the cheapest plans for heavy users has higher contention/congestion on un-cached international downloads...

International slow down happens periodically until they are more bandwidth which they probably only do at certain thresholds based on number of customers.

Hi,

If you are having speed issues you are more than welcome to raise them with me by personal message or on any forum here.

Speed tests in general, let alone to San jose is not an accurate reflection of a connection.

Please provide more information such as tracert to local and international sites, modem configuration screen shots, plan information. (If you are on an old plan, is it a limited 256Kbps plan?).

Thanks,
Ben

those of you posting speeds >2Mbps to California (like the OP) should know that those kinds of speeds aren't too bad for DSL, regardless of wich provider you are with. (they aren't great either, obviously, but certianly not 'terrible')

Not complaining too much because I live in rural Canterbury but when I was with Vodafone at the same address it was almost twice that speed. Not surprisingly though it was almost twice the price too.

My suggestions when talking about speed issues like this is run the following tests:

1.) Slingshots Speedtest via http://speedtest.slingshot.co.nz/
2.) Aussie Speedtests via http://www.speedtest.net/
2.) Asia Speedtest via http://www.speedtest.net/
3.) US Speedtest via http://www.speedtest.net/

Last Result:
Download Speed: 92547 kbps (11568.4 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 80627 kbps (10078.4 KB/sec transfer rate)
Latency: 1 ms







This above is to give you a indication that "Slingshot" don't necessary slow you down this was run off a connection with 100mbit 1:1 bandwidth...As you can see Aussie is good Asia is OK as we are in that part of the world, the US however not so great.
