Hey guys,

Just got changed to telecom big time and total home as a 2nd line in the

Have to ask tho are these decent speeds?

Im getting 5.7mb down and 0.79mb up

using the speedstream modem and the funny part is everytime i ring (about 4 times today)
they cant bring up my acc at all.

Apparently the ph number and acc number dont exist so i cant check the profile they have me on.

but its weird tho cause the speedstream connects fine (im assuming its connected to a cabinet and
that im port authenticated)

but iv heard speedstreams are limited to 8mb down... tried testing with the dynalink and no go as i need a UN and password and it wont connect without them even when i force the modem into adsl 2 - adsl 2+


But mainly what i wanted to ask was if those are ok because on my main line with orcon im getting 7.6mb down and 0.89mb up. and thats on there UBA (adsl 1) plan - orcon @ home purple.

and has people been having issues with downloading?

Even through http sites i can only get 20-30kbs

If you read the 1200+ post thread on Big Time you'll realise lots of people are reporting issues with speeds on Big Time.
