Something weird has happened to my gigabit connection. My speedtest results are all coming back at exactly (well almost) 100Mb/s both ways.

 

this happens no matter if I connect through various routers or direct with any machine connected to the ONT. 

 

My speed was always faster than this but I can't seem to get Bigpipe support to understand the problem, they keep going on about PC specs and pretty much not reading the emails that state multiple devices are working fine locally and were working fine previously and now there is a problem.

 

to me it looks like a provisioning problem, but I have no idea how this could have changed

 

 

 

anyone go any ideas?

Is your router and PC used for the connection both definately connected at Gigabit and not 100Mbps?

Does Chorus report Gbit speed at your address?

I live in Dunedin and we have gigabit and have been using it for years. (made me look at their website though, which finds my address then tells me it cant find my address...funny)

An interesting situation. You appear to have done lots of tests.

 

I guess you are stuck with @BigpipeNZ to verify your provisioning.

Serious question here. Assuming you have, but you also rebooted your Router and ONT? Done the ole unplug / replug cables in just to be sure they're making proper connection etc?

Found the problem.

 

When the gigatown deal ended they dropped my speed to 100/100 without asking. 

 

of course it took them 24 hours 4 emails and 3 support people to work that out even though I mentioned the plan I was on in the first email
