Where do I start?
I call Telecom, tell them about my problem. Good news is I get a very friendly rep that understands what I am going through. The downside was he knew nothing about about networking...I mentioned trace rout a few times and it threw him right off.
Anywho...I asked if I could control interleaving online. I knew I couldn't, but I did it the round about way for various reasons. Previously (as in two/three weeks previously) I had asked them twice to switch interleaving off. Each time they said they would do it...another 48 hours passed and it was not done. Today I call and it appears that 2/3 weeks later it is still on. This could be the source of my issues.
I was given an email with a log thingy to report any difficulties I have. I can send the report for a technician to look into. One interleaving is switched off and I am still having issues I will do just that.
For now...I wait. Maybe they will find a more serious issue with the transfer.
My father (one of the most computer retarded people in New Zealand) suggested that I might still be going through my other ISP and connecting to Telecom. While that itself is incorrect, I thought it could be possible that I am still being routed to a Wellington server through the Citylink network to Telecom, back to Citylink and to my house?
Not sure if that is even possible, but it could explain the tremendous pings to national servers if it was possible.
Like I said before. I'll wiat it out. I can see BigTime becoming one of the best plans around. Telecom are already half way there! :)
