nitrotech: Maybe try another provider, you could always port away then port back if no better

I'm a bit worried about my speeds to LA too .... ;-)



Did you change to kinect for that reason? Assuming trust power is kinect.

Couldn't complain about those speeds

sounds very much so like congestion.

have you tried different hours throughout the day to see if this is an consistent thing?

monitoring connectivity to local servers to see if there is any sort of local congestion there?


speedtests arent very reliable for real world tests, often you wont window scale up fast enough.

It's consistent as, doesn't matter what time of the day it is I always get the same results to multiple locations.

change your speed test results to be displayed in Mb/s (mbps) as that's what an internet connection is measured in.

but looking at your results there is not a lot wrong with it

as mentioned speed tests don't mean much in terms or real world performance

Speed tests don't show what's actually happening. Your right.
I can still get good speed tests but still experience poor speeds browsing and downloading.

I've on Telecom VDSL too (not a Unlimited plan), and I have recently started seeing insanely slow international access speeds.

While I still get 30mbit / 9mbit to New Zealand and Australia test sites, I have noticed that some international websites (presumably without CDNs in Australia/NZ) are loading extremely slowly, and Spotify is having issues buffering.

Checking speedtest.net, I'm getting a whopping 0.5mbit down / <0.1mbit up to test sites in California, Seattle and Japan. Interestingly ping and packet loss are still fine. This started happening a few days ago.

Telecom VDSL here too, tho not unlimited.
I listen to internet radio stations a bit on my days off, mostly American and European ones. I am lucky to ever get more than 10 seconds before it tries to buffer again.
Speed tests? I dont event bother, 5 minutes later and the test is still trying to run.

No, it was not internode.



I can't even test any more sites as the flash object on speedtest.net isn't loading.

there seems to be major issues with internode links for telecom customers.

I have done a few tracerts and there appears to be a major problem with my first hop,

 

222.152.45.9 - can have pings from 500ms up to 3000ms!! As this is still within Telecoms network surely it should have consistently low pings?

 

These sort of high pings normally appear when I am doing traces to overseas based sites, occasionally it is as low as 5-10ms, which I expect is normal.

Yep, something is seriously broken - Max I could get from a testmy.net  result was 57 Kbps Down and 38 Kbps Up = 98% lower than my previous average of 2.3 Mbps Down.

I have Telecom VDSL2 - Actual local rates 47 Mbps Down, 9.5 Mbps Up, 5ms Ping to Auckland
