Tel69:
Kilack: let us know how much of an effect the loss of interleaving has on your pings and your stablilty pretty please


Yes, I'd be interested too.
My Go Large I had no choice (that I knew of) to turn off interleaving.
On Big Time it was off from Day 1 and my ADSL download sync seed doubled compared to Go Large.
I still have no explaination for that considering both were unlimited download speed.


Go Large was max speed, but not ADSL2+. So it would be the max speed you could get on ADSL1. BT is max on ADSL2+.

I did this speed test at the same time as running a torrent to see if it would cripple all data...




Not sure if interleaving is off yet, but this is a very pre-BT ping.

anyone have similar problem?


my old d-link DSL-502T. Data Rare at 12000/160kbps when I was with SNAP, now I'm on BigTime and Date Rate is 7000/650kbps. But when I use telecom's tomson speedtouch modem it gave me same 12000/650kbps as previously...


 


why? :)


 


I have checked all settings, tried different ADSL mods, but no luck... telecom locked or something all other modems?

I think it's that price without Telecom phone line.  Or $59 with, or $10 when added to Total Home

That's correct. On principle we try to quote the full price for products/services, before any discounts that might apply for bundled offerings. Tom (DomPost)

Yeah, they spelt my name wrong.

{edit} Have to laugh, they spelt my name wrong at work as well.

I chose a TelstraClear plan at random for comparison as I hear they are good speeds, but I checked out WxC, Vodafone and Orcon and my results, while not stunning, beat all them for HTTP graphs... I'm very happy with my plan. Testing was done with iexposure the net speed testing company thingee.

So some people say it's horrible, some people say he's getting 6 Mbps? This is a wide spectrum of different perceptions...

That it is.
Baring the youtube thing with my caching server early up on swapping over to big time, general web usage has been great compared to Go Large (Even taking into account the increase in up ADSL sync speed).
2 gig per hour over night (average) for my 16 gig test (NOT P2P).
Tested with some P2P software and the traffic shaping of my web traffic having priority over P2P seems to be working fine too.

Considering the hastle I had getting Go Large to work (New ADSL modem, 3rd level techs, numerious phone calls, and free dial-up UGGGHHHHHH), For me at least this has been a good move. (I will qualify that with a "for now" however)

For me and my location it does seem like Telecom have got this plan correct and working as you would expect given what they say they will do with traffic shaping.
