my speed test as of today, its not a fluke as I first thought, this happend over the past 2 nights, because my modem burnt out on wednesday and new one arrived this morning. anyway, tried out new modem on xbox live, and my connection was green, instead of yellow, and i thought it was strange and tried this, and i was shocked. My speeds used to be:
Down: 300ish
Up: 40ish
ping/latency: 120/130.


anyone else had this all of a sudden in manukau region?

According to THIS your areas cabinets were just upgraded to ADSL2+ on 05/11/09 and 12/11/09 so the speed increase is not surprising. See HERE for more info on ADSL2+

I love the auckland speed connections, lived at two houses up here and the slowest speed I've gooten is 12.9mbps sync rate. Compare that to the hamilton ones of 7mbps means that for a geek like me the internet alone was a great reason to move to auckland.

We are in Dannemora Botany, On the East Tamaki exchange I belive. I have been told that the exchange is ADSL2+ compatible, does anyone know when the roadside cabinets will be upgraded to ADSL2+. We definitely dont have ADSL2 at the moment.

Surprised that given the number of houses around, they are not already upgraded... but then again apparently always been issues due to Fibre optic cable rather than cooper in the ground??

See the first link in my post to see if your cabinet is due to be done soon or check your address in the last link to see the probably wrong estimation from telecom.

GRRR this was short lived. International download speeds are hovering at 100 or less. But speedtest.net and www.telecom.co.nz/speedtest are telling me im getting about 1.9MBPS and telecom help desk said im getting around 2.6mbps. this is really bothering me now, because youtube takes forever to load and I tried downloading opera web browser and it took more than 5 mins to download the 6mb file. :@ anyone having this?

all traffic has been the same for me since thursday, down to almost dialup speeds at night time.
Rung telecom - they said well you are on bigtime and its a shared connection..
Even their own speedtest says i'm going at :

Your line speed is approximately 74.1 Kbps or 9.1 KB/sec

Wish I was on those speeds above, Can't wait for a cabinet to get near me..
2011 is the schedule for hillcrest, hamilton.. :-(

Well I just ran some more tests, and using the server in Auckland, gives OK results, but when I try it to a server in Miami, FL. Or Boston, MA, a completely different story. I was getting speeds of around 200 the other day to the states, but now i only get around 50kbps down and 40 or so up. Youtube takes FOREVER to load, and I need to record speed test results and email them to telecom, hopefully this helps. Atleast I'm not the only one having this sudden drop in international speeds.

There was a slice in a major cable in Sydney last Thursday, which could be still affecting international traffic rates.

Do you have any idea when this will be getting fixed?

I don't think its the fibre cut, at least not for bigtime custyomers anyway.
I was watching it this morning when I was getting a torrent and it was going at 500 to 700 kbs, then as soon as it turned 9.00am it went down to 120kbs (shaping coming in) and speedtests all dropped down to 100 as well. Shaping must be on everything not just torrents which could cause the slow speeds..

Wow, they really do throttle you on that plan. Dont even think I'll bother continuing to record the results, (I've started last night at around 9) because I dont even think Telecom could care less. Thanks for your help anyways guys
