Hello... Our robot found some keywords in your post, so here is an automated reply with some important things to note regarding broadband speeds.

 



 

If you are posting regarding DSL speeds please check that

 



 

- you have reset your modem and router

 


 

- your PC (or other PCs in your LAN) is not downloading large files when you are testing

 

- you are not being throttled by your ISP due to going over the monthly cap

 


 

- your tests are always done on an ethernet connection to the router - do not use wireless for testing

 


 

- you read this topic and follow the instructions there.

 



 

Make sure you provide information for other users to help you. If you have not already done it, please EDIT your post and add this now:

 



 

- Your ISP and plan

 


 

- Type of connection (ADSL, ADSL2, VDSL)

 


 

- Your modem DSL stats (do not worry about posting Speedtest, we need sync rate, attenuation and noise margin)

 


 

- Your general location (or street)

 


 

- If you are rural or urban

 


 

- If you know your connection is to an exchange, cabinet or conklin

 


 

- If your connection is to a ULL or wholesale service

 


 

- If you have done an isolation test as per the link above

 



 

Most of the problems with speed are likely to be related to internal wiring issues. Read this discussion to find out more about this. Your ISP is not intentionally slowing you down today (unless you are on a managed plan). Also if this is the school holidays it's likely you will notice slower than usual speed due to more users online.

 



 

A master splitter is required for VDSL2 and in most cases will improve speeds on DSL connections. Regular disconnections can be a monitored alarm or a set top box trying to connect. If there's an alarm connected to your line even if you don't have an alarm contract it may still try to connect so it's worth checking.

 



 

I recommend you read these two blog posts:

 



 

- Is your premises phone wiring impacting your broadband performance? (very technical)

 


 

- Are you receiving a substandard ULL ADSL2+ connection from your ISP?

Hi,

Vodafone ADSL, or ex Telstra ADSL?
Have not had any similar issues brought up unless it just happened.

Cheers

Ex Telstra ADSL, always had good connection so far but all of sudden it takes ages to load websites like ebay etc. only thing i can see is throttling as connection is good if a connect through a newzealand based vpn server.

Is this something new that has just started or ongoing for a while and what DNS settings are you using?

Not sure if it is related, but the difference in Speedtest results I get between domestic servers and overseas ones is massive.

NZ ping - 35

Vodafone London Ping - 333!

NZ down speed 25 Mbps

VF London down speed 7 Mbps

Ok, I think I see problem is originating from router as direct ethernet connection works fine for international traffic but wondering why router would differentiate between traffics?

Been getting issues with DNS and General Internet for the past few weeks, has become steadily worse in the last 2 weeks. Issue is intermittent and seems to not matter which DNS I have setup, Would echo the Question, has Vodafone changed something?

I have logged a fault with Voda and will do some tests tonight, but if anyone can post any info. EG: trace routes to any international sites that will be helpful for me.

just to update problem seems to have gone away after tried to repair wireless network connection but still not convinced if router would do this, for now i can access international websites easy but i guess night time traffic is too high and slows connection.
