Is anyone else having really slow international speed? All weekend, and late last week, I have not been able to get much more than a few hundred kilobits to international, although up to 15Mb/s locally to Auckland.
Really frustrating, as even hotmail is almost un-usable. Trademe, Geekzone, Westpac etc, all super quick, but google image search takes 10 to 15 minutes to load one page!
from Orcon Diagnostics just now:
Auckland,NZ: 2521 / 561 (9ms)
Wellington, NZ: 8110 / 564 (8ms)
Sydney, AU: 802 / 707 (64ms)
San Francisco, CA: 273 / 281 (182ms)
Maidenhead, UK: 160 / 227 (*ms)
Have had lots of variation in these results - generally the international has been between a low of 55 to this which is the highest I have seen of 273. Usually San Fran is around 110.
If I VPN to my office (in Dunedin) which is on a Telecom Fibre connection, speeds are good to both national and international.
