I am in Golden bay and signed up for xt mobile data about 3 weeks ago due to no copper options here.

It started off at 1.3 mbps for the first week, then seemed to drop to around .8 to 1.1 mbps for the week been, but tonight I have had trouble getting any data through at all.  Goes from nothing to around .1 mbps, and has been like that for the past 4 hours.

Should I be concerned that this is a taste of things to come?

I've rebooted and removed t stick etc but has made no difference.

It's working much better this morning but still only .33 mbps. Nothing like the consistent speeds we were achieving in the beginning. I'll keep testing from time to time and report back.

damn, it's turned to total rubbish again.. frequently dropping out for several minutes at a time and slower than dial up between dropouts.

I called telecom and was told that it can get congested at peak times but there were no known problems. I was told to monitor it and if it happens at similar times each day it is probably network congestion :(

Network congestion may slow speeds a bit, but would it cause complete blockage for extended periods?
