Is anyone else having speed issues between say 6pm and 10pm on Cable 130mbps unlimited? every speed test i seem to do during these times brings back download speeds up to only a max of 20mbps, my last result just now from Vodafone Christchurch test:
Last Result:
Download Speed: 11322 kbps (1415.3 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 9360 kbps (1170 KB/sec transfer rate)
7/21/2014 9:30:03 PM

previous result at 8:34pm was 19781kbps, before that 20/07/2014 6928kbps and 16/07/2015 8797kbps, now is this cosidered normal peak time performance which seems a joke given the the max rating but however..or is there something really wrong? Come 10-11pm and speeds will rocket back up to the normal 120-130 mbps.  Also has anyone had issues with the supplied Netcomm dropping the gigabit link to the Cisco? i have mine disconnected now but if i try to connect, the link will only be yellow and not green and performance is abysmal, if i need wireless i have to plug in my older 100mbps only TP-Link.

Are you testing this over WiFi or ethernet?

And I think the answer to your question is "unlimited"...

After doing that make sure you log a fault for slow throughput.

Exactly the same performance issues at the same times and also dropping the gigabit link to my netgear router, have tried wired and wireless but the speeds are abysmal. My Xbox one is literally two feet away from my router and was not even achieving a tenth of the line speed.

Wireless speed is completely out of control of the ISP, and depends on how much interference there is in your environment, hence my question.

Total speed though outside your LAN is another story though... But can only talk about if testing over ethernet really.

A Gigabit port flapping/dropping on your router would point to an issue on your network or router.

Hi johnojr

Sorry to hear you've been having trouble with the connection. I certainly haven't heard of any known capacity issues, would be good to find out more about this and maybe get a fault ticket lodged so the team can look into it further.

Regarding testing on wi-fi/ethernet - I've had situations before where there's been interference caused by strange devices like wireless security cameras and baby monitors that were operating on 2.4GHz and getting in the way of the wi-fi signal. In your situation it could be that at 6pm your neighbours put their kid to bed and turn on a baby monitor and 10pm is when they go to bed themselves and turn off the baby monitor! There can be a few unknown variables like that so where possible it's good to keep it simple with a wired connection.

Cheers

Dylan

Sorry i should of added in the main topic this is tested directly over Ethernet, also as for the gigabit link everything is fine when direct from Pc to Cisco all lights green, add the netcomm into the mix and it will take upwards of 5 minutes to establish a connection and even then it will only link at 100 and speeds abysmal no matter what time of day, and yes i have done all the usual resets etc.

Definitely worth having a word with the faults team on 0508 888 800 to see if anything is up with your node.
