Hi all,
I'm in Wanganui and during the last 3 months my connection at evening time (6 to midnight-ish) is extreamly slow. I've spoken to Tech Support but they say I'm connected at 3000-3500 Kb/s according to my router so there is no problem. However, when I do a speed test on the Telecom website, I get a speed of around 350 Kb/s which is quite rediculous. I play a lot of online games with my brother who is in the UK and they become unplayable as my "ping" jumps between 200 and 1500! As soon as I go on in the morning it's fine and speeds are good again. I understand that 6-midnight is the busy time but the speeds I get are just too slow to accept. I keep getting fobbed of that it's a problem with the exchange and it's being looked into, but as it's been going for 3 months I'm finding this harder to beleive.

Is anyone else getting these problems? Or can anyone give me some pointers?

Hiya, if you could point me in the direction of the search button that would be great as I can't seem to find it :D

I was a geek before the word was invented!
