Someone doesn't understand the real cost of dedicated bandwidth and how without best effort shared bandwidth it wouldn't be remotely be possible for him to afford an internet service.

Also other operators can build competing nationwide networks with higher CIR's if they so choose, most haven't go very far due to the cost and lack of profit in it.

Telecom only provides the gear,

Bad Speeds is 9 /10 times your ISP.

As said above, You need to understand how shared bandwidth works.

Actually not quite correct, Telecom provides the backhaul access and the associated bandwidth restrictions right now over the ATM backhaul a lot of peak time conjestion is caused by these restrictions, 45k whilst not great is still better than the 32k that was in place untill recently.

I would also note it dosn't matter if the restrictions are there or not it appears, if you look through the posts you will see every body is getting complained about for poor speeds by somone... dosn't matter if they are on a LLU connection with a 100kb CIR or a wholesaled DSL product offering there is always someone out there that is having issues with their ISP and venting just seems to be part of our world.

Actually, for consumers, bad wiring inside the house is probably the major cause of low speeds. Then the ISP.

But I think the OP is talking about something else, and Maverick nailed it.

Are you on a plan that throttles your speed after downloading more than you paid for?

Nope, in fact if anything they have raised it by around 30% from 32Kbs to 45Kbs.

It's funny how this backhaul limit has suddenly become the answer from ISP's as to why their services are slow, and yet Telecom customers signed up this year are using the same Wholesale products and backhaul restrictions without floods of complaints...

I completely disagree. It seems to be a fallacy promoted on these forums. I get the same speedtests to my ISP any time of the day and my connection rarely falters but from 7 to 9 in the evenings I struggle to do any web browsing . Throttled bandwidth is the real issue.

And what has your ISP told you is the reason for this?

As said in the other thread mentioned

ISP's could defiantly ease the issue by moving to a product with ethernet backhaul rather than ATM.

No replies to two e-mails to my ISP, Slingshot, but one would assume it's something between Slingshot and the rest of the World.

The latest problems seem suspiciously coincident to the start of "All you can eat" . Tonights not quite so bad but many evenings have been dial-up reminiscent.

Telecom could also stop being such *removed by me( in forcing ISP's to pay for a pricier service when they themselves have capped the cheaper one to make it pretty much unusable at times. It wasnt until telecom started enforcing this limit on backhaul that it started to be a issue.

I blame labour, 1987, biggest mistake in NZ history. Give the telecommunications back to the government i say, let it be regulated in a PRICIER manner.
