thanks. i was only familiar with BUBA but now after looking at the Comcom site see an SLA will be required for this EBA service, Does this mean reserved bandwith for EBA customers reducing the bandwith for normal users?

could it also be related to the southern cross cable upgrade?

Seems unlikely, since my mate on Slingshot isn't having such problems.

Detruire: Seems unlikely, since my mate on Slingshot isn't having such problems.

 

Someone else also said it must also be just a xnet issue because Orcon isn't having problems, but checking around different sites/forums people on other ISP's (including Orcon) and ihug are having the same issues. 

 

If you have a look at the ISP backhaul map in NZ http://www.ispmap.co.nz/topmap.html a lot of the troublesum ISP's are using the same backhaul. 

 

I think as someone else suggested that XNET has two problems (one resolved) of too many users on one connection between Telecom and XNET (dsl01) and backhaul problems to overseas. 

 

It's a shame that XNET isn't coming clean on their problems. Transparency goes a long way, rather than reading from Directors statements claiming everything is OK.

 

It's annoying because we are starting to move all our customers to XNET and now they are having problems.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Can we keep to real download speeds? (ie: pick a file from SF and download part of it, for a minute or so)

Speed tests always show speeds way off real speeds for me (way under, way over...)

Speeds werent so bad last night. Im still not able to watch youtube properly, use msn or play counterstrike. But multi-stream downloads are a little better.

I had no problems with YouTube last night. Videos would start after 1-2 sec, and the buffer would be well ahead, ie a 4min clip would be fully buffered after about 40sec. This was while I had uTorrent running uploading at ~ 60KB/sec as well.

I think you must be suffering from another fault, as at no stage have i had issues with msn.... playing games, sure would be an issue. and youtube, but not msn... i can use that over a flaky gprs connection no worries.

They are "real" speeds, in relation to the issues I have been having. The issue that I have had with xnet is a problem between my router and xnet's network, i.e. before it even reaches any other site be it local or international. So therefore, if I am getting speeds that are close to maxing out my router connection to either a local speedtest or xnet's speed test, then that indicates a clean pipe between me & xnet. When these tests drop to nearly a tenth of normal, then that indicates a big problem.

So yes these speeds do have some relevance, but yes I know they are not a 100% indication of things, but then what is? If I d/l a file from Apple and it takes a very long time, does that mean a problem with xnet? No of course not, but then again it might be.

Xnet has an Akamai server now, if you're using their DNS.

My mate just got broadband in the same row of flats. We both sync at ~7Mbits, He gets 2.5MBits on speedtest, I on xnet get 5.5MBits on speedtest (to Auckland.)

 

Looks like what ever problems xnet has, Other ISP's have it worse :)

Xnet's issue is primarily INTERNATIONAL.
