I am currently on a Telecom full speed broadband adventure plan.

I have a FTP server which is hosted in the United States. On my existing broadband plan, I can download at approx 190KB per sec.

I am thinking of changing to Telecom Big Time for the unlimited usage, but wont bother changing if the speeds for FTP are unusable.

Are there Bigtime users who can advise of the speeds they experience with FTP transfers?

If someone on Bigtime is able to PM me a message, I can provide login details for FTP server if they are able to check speed on their Bigtime plan as this should give a realistic idea of what speeds to expect and whether it is worth my while to change plans.

Many thanks.

Again. Don't bother.

I'm on BigTime right now, and I cant wait to get off it now. in the middle of trying to convince the others to pay the disconnection for hte contract.

All traffic sucks on BigTime - except strangely enough P2P.

This morning I was downloading a file at 1mb/s.

Yet, I cant even get a steady connection via Port 80.

Absolutely bull crap if you ask me.

Uploads are no counted towards your data cap at the moment on Telecom Retail plans, so if you using 20GBs or less then I would stay where you are.
