Hello Everyone,

Looks like XNET are having international connectivity issues since Friday at 8PM, very helpful lady on the helpdesk said this morning that is was to do with a 3rd party supplier (In the USA?) as only USA sites are slow.

I can get 4.5Mbits to Sydney still - but Los Angeles is around 130kbps!

No ETA on a fix :( - but their status message now lists it as a fault :)

Tyler - Parnell Geek - iPhone 3G - Lenovo X301 - Kaseya - Great Western Steak House, these are some of my favourite things.

i'm not with Xnet (i'm with Ihug), but since yesterday the speeds have been extremely variable.

Wonder if it's got anything to do with Live Earth streaming saturating the infastructure perhaps?

Ah, that would make sense (Live Earth).  I can't even get onto the most important web site in the works,, which is a forum for Volvo enthusiasts.

You can never have enough Volvos!
