Kia Ora, have been on Bigpipe UFB 200/200 for 2 weeks now and am very much enjoying the service.

Had a few issues on the changeover from Snap but the email support was great and suited me 100% as a hardcore geek. I reported the issue at 10:12am, first reponse back from support (who had already talked to Chorus at this point) was 10:34am - all sorted at 12:05pm.

Initially the upstream seemed to be limited to 100mbit, I was busy with other things and wanted to get more examples before contacting support. Before I got a chance to do any more on this, I noticed a few PPPoE drops on Thursday morning around 5am and now that restriction is gone:





Even further afield I am very happy with - if speedtest.net ran a longer test when the latency is high I think TCP Window scaling would do it's thing and higher speeds would be achieved:





The only things I'm missing from my old ISP are static IPv4 (though I realise it will be hard/impossible for new ISPs to offer this) and IPv6 (good for my own education and experimentation).

Great work from everyone at Bigpipe :)

cheers
ben

Thanks for the feedback,  that's great. (I wonder though why you aren't getting 200Mbps down on a direct speedtest - I assume you aren't using Wifi?  What modem are you using?)

We'll have static IPv4 very soon you'l be pleased to hear :)

Using a Cisco 2821 with gigabit to my PC.  I'll try initiating the PPPoE connection from a single PC connected to the ONT to eliminate anything in my setup and report back.  Great news on static IPs :)

cheers

Kia Ora ano, turns out not getting the absolute full 200/200 was my fault - here is the result connected direct to the ONT from my PC:



Looks like the 2821 just isn't fast enough, might have to go back to the MikroTik RB2011 I was using. I do realise how lucky I am to have a connection that is too fast for my router. I was already happy with the speeds I was getting so wouldn't have bothered checking this unless Bigpipe had mentioned it - so respect+ again :)

That's a bit more like it :)

A nice problem to have.

I would have thought the Cisco 2821 would be able to handle that ;) not to worry, I'm using a Mikrotik RB851G-2nHD because my Cisco router couldn't handle my 100mbit UFB connection.

Those are some excellent speeds and I am horribly jealous.
