Not for me.

It certainly isn't like it was three weeks ago.

did some testing after 3am last night. it appears that ssh/ssl is throttled even after that time. every server that uses https had extremely long waiting time. some - just timeout. tested exactly the same servers that have both http and https. http works flawlessly, https is a no go at all.

I'm finding the same thing now, trying to access my education provider in Australia via https and its timing out. That is just stupid.

And they definitely shouldn't be throttling it at 3am.

https is in VERY common usage, to throttle it to the level it is is ridiculous.

Yahoo Xtra is one of Telecom's home pages right?

Since Telecom and Xtra are plastered all over it and you log into your Xtra mail there, I would expect that everything on that page be at least usable. I can't watch a video at 50k let alone 1500k. The page itself takes long enough to load up. The email log in works fine though.

Ugh.

I'm not defending the performance, but you probably know that a lot of the information on that page is international and therefore is hit by the current big time management rules.

True...But its Telecoms.  I think its kinda silly.  Even though they probably won't be able to do anything about it.

Well I have logged my second call to telecom and given them a deadline to fix it or I'm off to another provider. When it starts affecting everyday aspects of my internet use like internet banking, thats it!

hehe told them I would like to upgrade to dialup, I got silence lol

Talkiet: Cool... ok, now for something a little more interesting...

Run a tracert to telecom.co.nz... I'm not interested in the number of hops, or the latency to any of the intermediate steps, I just want you to be able to identify what the first responding hop is... Here's a tracert from my bigtime connection in Chch as an example...

Cheers - N


Here is my trace route:
Tracing route to telecom.co.nz [146.171.18.242]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

  1    <1 ms    <1 ms    <1 ms  192.168.1.1
  2    68 ms    61 ms    83 ms  210-55-64-32.adsl.netgate.net.nz [210.55.64.32]
  3     *        *        *     Request timed out.
  4    92 ms   127 ms   100 ms  ae4-20.akcr10.global-gateway.net.nz [202.50.238.49]
  5   287 ms   173 ms   148 ms  g0-1-0-4.akcr8.global-gateway.net.nz [210.55.202.49]

  8    31 ms    30 ms    29 ms  146.171.18.242

Here is the ping result that you asked for pinging the first hop (210.55.64.32) although i think the problem stopped by the time i got there, i will try again when it comes back again and give you a second result.

Ping statistics for 210.55.64.32:
    Packets: Sent = 100, Received = 100, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 11ms, Maximum = 97ms, Average = 16ms

I did a ping to telecom.co.nz after the ping to the first hop was done and the ping had got back to normal before i could test it, tonight dosn't seem to be bad so far for ping, speeds are terrible

Nice one!  What did they say when you gave them a dead-line?

It is getting pretty rediculous.

Not a great deal actually but then it was a trained monkey, probably had a cue card that says "When given deadline, act like robot"

Not sure what's changed but I'm also getting very high ping (wasn't like this last night):
