Yep. Definitely seems a lot slower than usual this evening. I can usually get 5Mbit from most major sites whenever I need to download something, but noticed I was trickling in at about 300kbit when I tried to pulled a music file I purchased off Audio Jelly today at 5:30PM today. Doing speed tests confirmed there was a slow down.

Anyway, as of 9:20PM, I'm only pulling close to dial up speeds of about 8-11kB/s while downloading a podcast. I couldn't even load up speedtest at one stage. Local/national is full speed though. I'm wondering if anyone on the Telecom Help desk actually realizes that something is borked? In my experience, it seems once something breaks, it takes an awfully long time before the front line help desk personnel are informed of it by their superiors.

None the less... Will begin collecting speed test results (just in case)...

At the above address I get

Your line speed is approximately 11315.2 Kbps or 1386.7 KB/sec.

At speedtest though speed to sydney is rubbish it starts off then keeps stopping like the data is coming through in bursts. Takes 2 minutes plus to do test.

The one next to Sydney starting with T is a bit better but still starts and stops, just seems to get a bigger burst of data before stops.

5.63Mb/s to Los Angeles, 3.12 to Canberra, and 0.69Mb/s to Sydney, so can get data from America faster then Australia.

Yeah, my speeds latency are significantly better now, but I have this feeling that it'll be back to what it was like tomorrow evening.
