Hey guys, I recently just upgraded to the Broadband 250gb plan by Slingshot, and I am experiencing slow speeds. I have an adsl2+ Modem.
Here are my results from Slingshot's speedtest:

Download Speed: 1457 kps (182.1 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 908 kps (113.5 KB/sec transfer rate)
Packet Loss: 0 %
Jitter: 24 ms
Latency: 120 ms
Test Server: nz-akl

Thanks

Unfortunately a speedtest provides nothing to indicate what your issue could be. You'll need to provide the following details.

What are your modem sync stats and attenuation? Do you have a master filters or plug in filters on every device in your home? Are you served from a cabinet or exchange and are you on a ULL or wholesale connection?

You can find out if you're on a cabinet or exchange by entering your details into the Chorus website http://chorus.co.nz/service-availability-tool

First of all, your problem is that your on Slingshot, I was with them a couple years ago, speed wouldn't go above 110KB/s, moved to Telecom shot up to 830KB/s

Times have changed I would expect this user to get the same as on Telecom...

I think you have an issue with your line here.... Its best if you contact our helpdesk on 0800 89 2000

The problem isn't the ISP. We moved from Telecom to Slingshot last month and line speeds went from 11Mbps to 16Mbps.

are you running the speed tests from a device that is connected via wi-fi?   if so, re-run them from a wired connection and make sure its still an issue...
