Hello213: Hey, I was wondering If I should change from the adventure plan to the Big time plan. 10gb is enough for gaming and webpages (which is adventage 10gb) but cant do much downloading and you tube just eats average 340mb which is the daily usage.
So do you think I should try big time out? As long as webpages load fast then I dont really care. Do they?
How is youtube on this plan? 24/7 streaming? And what about gaming is there a disadvangtage with gaming on big time over another plan? Ping?
But what I mostly care about is loading webpages and stuff. Does it ever feel like dail up speeds on the internet? As Ive heard its been like this from some people. So managed, it will be slowly at times but dail up?
and wat about ping www.telecom.co.nz I get around around 41 (interleaving on)
Ragnor: What's the peak time 6-12pm performance of general http like now after the tweaks this week?
Chiefly Facebook performance is fairly critical to the flatmate approval factor.
I loved that Video :)
Yup, that DL's in around 1 minute (4 minute video) on my Big Time connection from the cache server v17.lscache7.l.google.com [220.127.116.11] which BTW has a ping of 8ms :)
You said you were pulling it from v4.lscache1.googlevideo.com on my machine resolves to 18.104.22.168 which looks like it's in the same Data Centre (not that you can assume for certain with only IP)
Looks like something is wrong with the caching, you should be pulling it from the cache at near line speed.
Try logging a fault, unless NeilR is someone else from Telecom is around?!?!?
I think I'll log a fault tomorrow unless any other shining lights come out overnight.
Thanks for your help.
