Perhaps the cheaper/free off peak data that a few other ISPs offer is the the better method than how big time has been designed

10 Minutes to download even a 500KB file, if it downloads at all.
Thats more than just traffic shaping.

tunafish:

Hear lies the stupidity the others have all worked it out that flat rate is undeliverable and won't even try, and it is not as if Xtra hasn't tried before.



Firstly the last two weeks have been much worse than normal on Big Time, there seems to be some fault at play imo.

However, many ISP's in many countries around the world have worked out how to deliver unlimited plans, even ones that primarily speak English and aren't part of major continents eg: Singapore for example.

Really I suspect Telecom needs to have a tougher mechanism in place to handle the people who have found workarounds and are consuming more than their fair share of the Big Time international bandwidth pool 24x7.

We can all appreciate it's a shared bandwidth pool provisioned at a certain contention ratio, think motorway in peak time.. but surely something should be done about that guy with the monster truck taking up 4 lanes?

Same mistake/result as last time (Go Large) again pretty much.

I'm getting a solid 928KB/s to RS right now.

My connection hits a megabit regularly after interleaving was switched off. I rarlely went that fast to local servers, let alone international servers.

I think I'll be giving Telecom a call tomorrow if your results are anything to go by.

Ragnor: i am actually downloading at 400KB/sec from Megaupload right now.

its been very fast for me for days now and im on big time.

we dont care if you get slow speed.

find the workaround like the rest of us.

i am now downloading a 7GB of game file so i can try it before buying it because there is no demo for it.

Indeed. I just tested it again to see if it was consistant. I thought I'd better take a snap for show and tell! lol.

Is that normal for ADSL1?

What speed does your modem sync at, 1MB/s = ~8Mbit/s so it's about right for ADSL1 where you're pretty close to the exchange.

Once or twice I think I peaked at 2.1MB/s with FDM. But it slowly dropped down. One time was downloading a file from an Actrix server in Wellington and the other was from a MU server.

Modem says:
Rate (Kbps): 8128 / 832
