johnr: Was that done over WiFi or LAN?


Wifi 2.4 and 5 ghz. Just went to test using the laptop and the connection gone down again. Still got all green LEDs .


One think which is handy about being a 2Talk customer you can get an approximate time of when the ATA device was successfully at connecting to the internet as is reports last know connection. Last known connection 8:05.

Just after 8:30 PM in Island Bay. The connection's decent, but not quite optimal. There's improvement, though, and I think it's going to just keep getting better. *fingers crossed*

EDIT
Looks like Speedtest.net's new HTML5 beta still has broken images. Direct link.

Island Bay, cable 100/10

No worse than usual at 8:30pm:



Have any Wellington Geekzoners noticed any improvement after yesterday's cable upgrades?

I think that our node missed out on the upgrade - peak congestion is slowly creeping back.

The Oookla Beta site. Here is another test using the original OOkla test site about 20 minutes later (this is a 130/10 connection):

Modem reboot, Saturday night 7:16pm in Island Bay on our 50/2 plan:



Mustn't grumble. StarWars Battlefront with that ping on the PS4 is eminently enjoyable [although I've no clear idea where the battlefront servers are in relation to us].

It's not looking good tonight on our 130 Mbps plan. It's another hour to peak yet too. :(

We've made the jump to cable and so far I've been pretty happy with it, speedtests I've done are a bit hit and miss where I do one that shows great speeds then the next one is a bit slower and so on.

Island Bay, cable 100/10, tested via Ethernet, 9:17pm:





This is my worst night for congestion since the October upgrade - is anyone else in the Island Bay area having problems?

EDIT:  Spark and nPerf Auckland servers give the same result or worse

Still watching this thread after having shifted to fibre a week ago.

The performance difference is like night and day, no cdn delays, no speed dips and Netflix working regardless of time of day.

I've not seen performance this good in the six months I was on HFC, it makes it hard to see the justification in Vodafone selling HFC as an equivalent service to fibre, it could be priced somewhere between vdsl and fibre even though vdsl is more consistent in my experience.

This isn't intended to rub it in that my connection is now better, but hopefully more of you get some recourse from Vodafone because HFC real world performance really does seem far worse than fibre; yet the blurb I got when signing initially was that it was as good as fibre and hence billed as effectively the same product.

I might be unpopular for saying it in this thread, but please do troubleshoot as normal, not everything is related to congestion. There can still be normal issues like wifi, routers, other devices playing up. You can see by how this thread has slowed down (pun unintended) that this issue isn't the same as it was before. I've heard that traffic on the cable network has been falling back just a little recently as people go on holiday etc.
