Zeon: Looked at changing a number of connections to Voyager but they don't have IPv6 so couldn't..


Voyager are running an IPv6 trial... give them a call.

I'm thinking about migrating my VDSL connection from Slingshot to Voyager when I move house, but keen to make sure that the Unlimited package doesn't mean that Evening speeds hit a slowdown due to insufficient backhaul being allocated. I'm not actually that high a user of bandwidth, so quality of connection is more important than sheer quantity (probably use between 40 - 80GB a month). Equally, as long as the "Unlimited" bandwidth doesn't affect the quality, it does mean there will be no surprise bills if we had a very busy month. I also like the idea of the Static IP allocation for a one-off fee.

So how are evening peak-time speeds on Voyager VDSL?

Thanks

Mike

Depends on your location, what you're downloading, national or international (and which regions), etc.

My sync rates are 43,897 / 9,729 and I typically download between 500GB and 1TB each month.

National Speedtest results are pretty much always full rate. eg 41 Mbps / 9 Mbps

Over the past 4 weeks most of my national downloads from caches are pretty consistent any time of the day and close to full rate.

If I see a dip it's usually small (max drop of 2-5 Mbps) around 7pm - 9pm.

eg earlier I downloaded a 1.62 GB HD TV episode from iTunes via a local Akamai cache in around 6 minutes.

Most of my data is international from Linode (via Hurricane Electric) and Soft Layer in the US.

International is pretty awesome with no shaping but does vary a lot.

eg real world and Soft Layer San Jose Speedtest vary from 8 - 24 Mbps / 3 - 8 Mbps

International transit to US is generally via Telstra Global.

Australia is also pretty much full rate.

I've been on Voyager for a couple of months now, happy with the service, only had to contact them once and that was because my voicemail hadn't been activated :)

Of an evening I do notice a slight slow down, but not enough to make me want to give up on the internet :-p There does seem to be some routing issues with a couple of sites (imgur.com can be dog slow) but overall everythings good. Ping in games (CS:GO etc) are always around 30 or less.

Cost wise I couldnt complain - for me to get what I have with Voyager via my old ISP, wouldve been costing me $170 a month (after I spoke to retention team that dropped to $120....surprise - not.) On Voyager its $100.

VDSL, unlimited data, landline (VoIP) , voicemail, static IP and good service.
