I left telecom to get away from crap like this, it's been going for days and no word from telecom whats going on. In my earlier post I think it was early hours of the mourning when it was fine.

As for fiber cut a friend on telstra is getting 3 to 4 Mb/s to Sydney no problems.

To show it's not my line here's local speed.

Heres when the sh*t hit the fan for me by the look of it..
Results from speedtest one day blazing, the next dead..
Just talked to my mate 2 streets over hooked up to the same exchange on bigtime and he's going fullspeed. He is on a different C Class to me though so probably on a different server.
So its not bigtime.
So its my connection, At 6am its going fullspeed.. Night time dead :-(

It is almost like I'm back on Xnet's torrent plan again, that was about the same as this in the end when I was on it last year..

Sigh, still no word from telecom after they got my tests requested..



Then the next day until now:

Same here, over last week, and telecom has reset ports and stuff, and the last time they reset the port, the modem disconnected when the phone rang, chorus came and fixed it, and tested the lines too. we should be getting alot higher than we are atm. anything outside of auckland is just slow for me right now

As of last night, I've been having problems where its really patchy, will work then won't. Tried restarting the router... Then this morning was fast as. Now I can't get into my PC via Logmein!
Its like theres a lot of jitter in the network.

Well it looks like I'm finally back to normal when I got home from work just now.
I don't know what they did but whatever it was it worked :-)

Your line speed is approximately 10078.9 Kbps or 1235.2 KB/sec

Just been on phone to telecom and according to them there's no problem with my line, I'm not affected by the international routing problem, and nothing I say seems to make a difference to them, I guess the below speed to Australia is normal.

Where do I go from here, this is indeed bad customer service.

im not even sure now with telecom, they dont understand much when you try to explain anything. I had someone from Chorus come round today to fix a faulty jackpoint, making the modem disconnect when the phone rang, he tested our line and we should be getting 19 mega BYTES per second, 19 thousand kb per second. I was shocked by this and they called the help desk for some line tests and the exchange got a call too. lol. "i have never seen such speeds at a private property before" - Chorus worker. right now we only get about 1.5 mB/s, where is my 19 mB/s? no one from telecom can answer that.

@tardtasticx:
Sounds like your friendly technician was confusing megaBITs and megaBYTES. ADSL2+ won't do more than 24 megaBITs. Even VDSL (depending on the varient) won't do more than 100megaBITs (50 more likely if you're right on top of the cabinet). Given the fact you're getting 15megaBITS, I'd say your line is performing according to specification.
