Hey guys.

posting this as a last resort.

 

Spark previously stated, they will most likely never shape traffic with unlimited unless something drastic has to happen, and usage spikes.

But these past few days (week actually), I have noticed an increased decrease in performance in some categories, and other categories unaffected.

I checked the master filter out last week, when the performance decrease started in the hope that something may have gotten in there, like dirt etc, unfortunately this was done when I had just woken up, and I was two thirds asleep (Not half asleep),  and when I opened up the panel and despite having done this before on many occasions, I saw two sets of cables with a cut in the middle, I wrongly assumed that the join there was for an old alarm system that has been long since been dismantled, it was only after I had disconnected the cabling, did I realise, that it was actually the split that Chorus had made, so that the phone socket in the house, can be connected to the master filter, hence the identical cabling going into the house, and going out. 

So after I patched everything up, everything was working exceptionally, and still is, but the same issues persist.

Videos, hosted on sites other than YouTube buffer at the best of times, and noticed when I got back from an event with Air NZ, I noticed my IPTV box, which usually is rock solid constantly, was buffering, and jittering, and although the provider does do that sometimes, it's usually restricted to one or two channels, not the whole lot.

So is anyone having issues?

 

 

 

Thanks

It wouldn't surprise me, in fact I would expect it to happen, in an attempt to normalise traffic after the DNS attack recently, it makes logical sense.

 

 

 

However, since the attack is sorted, any way to disable shaping again, as Dailymotion is unwatchable.

No we are not currently shaping. What DNS servers are you using?

I can confirm on my 100mbit UFB plan there is no reduction in performance, still working 100%.

You sure it isn't something as simple as your WiFi?

It depends on whether Limelight Network has a local presence (they're the CDN for Dailymotion).

i guess this the is next port of call for those on unlimited plans when their speed "slows". spark must be shaping the network now.
