Hey

I am on Vodafone Cable in Lower Hutt, usually don't have any issues.  Tonight I'm having Youtube videos (playing back in 1080p) constantly buffering.

Speedtest's to the Vodafone server in Wellington are fine, however the tests to the CityLink and Spark servers are far far slower than usual, also very slow to Sydney (~2mbps down) which explains my Youtube problem.  Anyone else having trouble tonight?

Me too.
VF cable 50/2 Wellington

VF servers:

Wgtn    ping 10, 32/2
Auckland   ping 110, 10/2  (normally 12, 50/2)
Sydney  ping 132, 8/2  (normally 44, 50/2)

Until the outage on 7 November, I had experienced no speed problems.
Speeds have trended down since then.

All of those speedtest servers are fine from Snap UFB, I get my line speed. Sydney is only slightly slower. Just to help you rule stuff out.

Had the same issue tonight, except that ping to even the Vodafone Wellington server was ~100ms as well.

50/2 cable Wellington.

Seems all fixed now. Of course, nothing relevant was ever on the network status page.

Was very bad last night in the Hutt. It seems to be just sliding into lacklustre performance, speeds are medeocre at peak times, ie the time I actually use the internet. The most annoying thing is I may as well be on the 50Mb/s plan because most of the time that's a decent margin over what I get. What use to me is 115Mb/s if I can only get it at 11pm on a weeknight?

YouTube is served from a Google cache inside the Vodafone network. Speeds to Sydney are irrelevant.

VF cable, Wellington

Normal services have been resumed.
Normal pings and speeds to VF servers in Wellington, Auckland, & Sydney (The Sydney ping was a "best yet" of 40ms)

It did fix itself later in the night, but by later we're talking 11pm, that's not acceptable.

 

 

It's still fine, hopefully it was just a one off, will see if there's any major performance hitches tonight.

Your connection is "best effort" - nothing is guaranteed.
Having said that, log a fault and give them a chance to look at it.
