I'm in Taupo for the week having to tether off my phone for data. I'm using a brand new MotoG currently in 3G mode as there is no 4G here. I'm not trying to use a lot of data, just a bit of geekzone plus a couple of news sites.

Mobile apps on the phone are largely ok, but actual web browsing on the phone or via my laptop via WiFi tether is largely unusable

for example some serious latency to google's public DNS and major packet loss to stuff.co.nz

Oh and is anyone monitoring the Skinny twitter account as I've not seen any activity for some time.

is it possible for you to teather with a cable?

last time i was 3G bound for awhile, i found much the same experience, cable cut out the wireless interference in the area and it subsided a fair bit.


funny enough, this is the same phone that i was able to hold a pretty constant 100ms on CS.. while on the train. - tunnels werent my friend, we gave up on the idea after a round or two, was a spot of entertainment for the daily hour each way ride though.

Hi 

If you can PM me your number and date / time for when you are experiencing a very slow data session on mobile data and what you are experiencing onscreen (e.g. hung webpage, error message) then I will get someone to investigate.  

Cheers

Paul
