My ADSL1@Xtra connection had 6500kb/s - 7200kb/s download transfer rates.
Thats more then you/me currently have with Orcon ADSL2.
znakedwrx: Guys, stop waisting your time!
Didnt you read what Duncan from Orcon said ?
Duncan Blair/Orcon: "As it has been mentioned in this thread already (not by me), no residential broadband subscriber has dedicated bandwidth. If you really need a 10Mbps international pipe I am sure that our business team would be more than happy to quote you on it, but I can assure you that it will run into the thousands of dollars per month."
In other words: Even you have ADSL2 (latest blabla) and such great line connection, forget about getting good transfer rates outside New Zealand.
Be happy with what you have OR show us MORE money ("thousands of dollats per month") to join 21 century internet club :)
I remember a day when i was happy about goverment decision to unbundle internet in NZ, but now when i see the situation today i think that we actually didnt get any benefit out of it, but we know who actually did :)
Before i joined Orcon, i was on Xtra (adsl1). Xtra connection speed was way better then Orcon today.
So for all of you guys who think ADSL2 at orcon will bring you far better speed your answer is here:
"As it has been mentioned in this thread already (not by me), no residential broadband subscriber has dedicated bandwidth.

Hmmz now when i have read this again and again, i feel like we were missled ?
Before MAX/MAX came out - the story was If you line quality is good - you will have MAX download rate - and it was like that (on XTRA adsl1)
Now with Orcon - ADSL2 - Line quality is good, but international download rate are ***limited*** coz Orcon is SMALL ISP with NO INTERNATIONAL BANDWIDTH CAPACITY and instead getting ADSL2 (like we were promissed)- our download rates are ACTUALLY ADSL1 speed (even more slower then adsl1).
Since orcon advertises ADSL2 (latest blablabla - join the fastest blabla) - we actually have >ADSL1 !
They didnt tell us we will be on ADSL1 ? They didnt tell us about limiting international traffic ?
Or am i wrong ?
If we were living in France - we would already have a protests on the streets and we would go after their heads! :)
Just an idea :P
PickledHamster: After running some speed tests, I don't see any improvement.
Jarno: Traceroutes and pings show significant packet loss when traffic hits the Global Gateway upstream. Routes via Asianet appear fine.
