Grade: F+ Slower than 83% of New Zealand

https://www.speedtest.net/result/2510195035.png

To be taken with a grain of salt, as I'm using an older ADSL modem I found in a junk pile somewhere, and this is probably a busy period for users downloading "adult content".

I'm happy with the cheaper prices, but yeah I'll probably try a newer router at some stage.

ok I'll give the modem stats a go.. I've been struggling to upload a new azure deployment tonight, thats all. It's going slow and dropping out a fair bit. I suspect its the modem. It looked like it came out of the inorganics. I found in a girlfriends box of stuff and have been borrowing it until I can be bothered getting a new one. :(

Speedtest results mean absolurtely nothing.

Modem stats are all that matters.

Do you have a master filter installed? What is your home wiring like?

If you search back through posts I'm sure I would have mentioned this line first long before John or Peter!
