Weird!

I suppose you have tried all the usual things. (Router reboot ect...Or try a different one)

I have a perfect connection to everthing.

Tried restarting it earlier to no effect, i can't try another one as unfortunately my other one died recently and i havn't been able to replace it as of yet, will try restarting the modem again and see if that fixes anything.

It just seemed to completely vanish just after 9pm, went down to about 25ms, seems interesting that it seems to always go away at the same time like clockwork...

Telecom probably moves abnormal amounts of data round during those times causing latency issues for some?

hello, first time poster round here, just having major difficultys with the internet lol and googled and found this thread with people with similar issues... basiclly..my nets unusable only thing i can do is  browse websites and stream vids of youtube etc.


gaming is a big hell no...after 10pm till like 2am i have around about 30ping max sometimes drops to 17 ish

before that well round now i jumped on a tf2 server which pinged at 30ms(in steam) spiked up to like 700 and became unplayable as soon as i joined. seems like it just bounces around from being normal and whenever you try to do anything bounces back into the extremes.. kinda assumed it was the exchange around here but if others are having similar issues may rethink it.
seems to have  changed a bit recently also, as it used to have a problem more between 2-10 now its alll the time tried at 10am this morning and was still rubbish.

for example.

Hi guys,

Not sure how everyone sees the status of the Big Time plan at the moment but I am still not happy with a 200 KB/sec cap on http traffic, so I sent Telecom an e-mail/complaint today. He obviuosly doesn't care if I leave Telecom :-)


Hi there,
I understand that there is still a lot of work being done by Telecom/XTRA with traffic shaping on the Big Time plan. Is that correct?
Also can you confirm if http traffic is being shaped (capped) at around 200-220 KB/sec during the day - because that seems to be the case.
If so, is that permanent as I am getting really annoyed with it? If I download a large file (e.g. say it takes 2 hours to download) using http, the rest of my web browsing is as slow as dial up speeds. This is frustrating and I am seriously considering either moving plans permanently or to another provider altogether. Your comments on this would be appreciated... Regards,


And the response......


Thank you for contacting Telecom.

We do not employ traffic shaping any longer, however on the big time plan we do traffic management, simply put during peak times Big time user MAY be slowed to near dial up speeds. The link below will give you more specific information.

https://www.telecom.co.nz/broadband/select/1,10627,205728-204466,00.html?action=/plan&detail=17#traffic_management

For this inconvenience we do not cap you. So you can use as much data as you like.

If you are experiencing slow service outside the traffic managed time frames, then you should contact the helpdesk so we can investigate the problem.

This may uncover faults on the system we may not be aware of, like when Big time users were getting slow speeds on international traffic. A problem that we finally got resolved.

So other then traffic management, there are no restrictions on your speed.

If you have any further questions regarding Telecom products and services please visit our web site at http://www.telecom.co.nz

The deifnitive source for answers is Doozy. He doesnt post very much so you MIGHT be best to PM him nice polite questions for answers.

Well Telecom sent a tech out today to check my lines. Seems that one of the jacks in the house was causing major noise on the line leading to my huge attenuation problems. They split that jack off the main line and things are much better now:



Can't complain really. BUT, even after this I did have a couple of dropped connection today. Still, this is so much better than before that I am prepared to live with it now. It must have just been a coincidence that the line started acting up when I switched to Big Time.

Anyway, thanks Telecom for finally sorting it out in the end. Cool

Big time is being scrapped, according to today's paper - we will all be moved on to other plans.

Apparently it is due to "Vampires" using terrabytes of data.

It is a sad sad day..

Thats very sad news.

I never had any problem with Big Time, enjoyed it all the way through.

Its a sad thing so many people tried to exploit the plan, though i spose the only reasurance is the fact that those people will now get what they deserve. Its just a pitty it kills it for the rest of us.

My only question now is where do we all stand on that 12 month contract? Since theyve given up on the plan.
