Well I've moved over today at 8am from XNET to Big Time, someone said you get 2 days of fastness on Big Time then it turns to custard so hears hoping that aint true cause it's fast so far.

DL's torrents now at 1.5Megabits during peak time, watched the most popular YouTube NZ HD content which came down at my line speed 7 Megabits. Never seen the red line fly across so far in YouTube.

So far I'm happy, it's fast, yet to see 'buffering' and yeah thats about it.

Let's hope it doesn't slow down in two days, still gotta be better than XNET - lovely guys, but when the leeches piled on (I don't torrent as a rule) it was dialup all over.

I switched to Big yesterday. A very big mistake .My spped is now 0.41mb/s Download and 0.14mb/s .

I used to get greater than 5mb/s download.

This is a disgrace.

Sounds like a fault, you tried all the usuals, like rebooting your router? what ISP did you come from? what is your sync rate?

Join the club; tonight the maximum I can get downloading off rapidshare, 15K if I'm lucky - this is down from 130K+ with the old plan. I'm connected to the exchange at 2,000kbps so I don't expect perfection but I do expect a speed close to 100K.
