Hi

I appear to be getting slow international traffic much to the annoyance of the other members of the household!
The line and local speedtests are fine in the 8 - 10 Mbits/sec range. No complains there. However overseas I struggle to get more than 1Mbits/sec down loads. In many cases the upload is much better than download. Latest speedtest.net to Texas 0.37MBit/sec down 0.73 MBits/sec up.

Am I asking for too much? 

Cheers

Hi, 



International traffic is affected by a lot of different things such as routing, international congestion, B party server congestion/issues and Unlimited plan depending on the data.

What sites in particular are you having issues with?

If you would like me to look into this you can PM me your account number.



Thanks,
Ben
