It doesn't appear to be all sites, but the performance tonight and for the last couple days has been atrocious even for Vodafone.

Stuff can take a couple minutes to load a page, but reddit will load almost immediately with view images turned on so it's loading a graphics heavy page. My boy was even coming out and interacting with us because playing Minecraft online wasn't feasible, so you know it must be bad.

At least their billing system works well, the bills turn up nice and quick when they need to get down to my machine :-/

And now I DC'd from Rocket League in the middle of a ranked match with friends.

I am going to go outside and yell some profanities at the top of my lungs now... :)

Same here. Speed test page loads after about 5 minutes and shows semi-tolerable rates, but latency is through the roof and gaming is down the toilet. I haven't bothered trying to watch any video.

I guess blocking speedtest when its crap is one way for vodafone to stop these images of terrible speeds being posted/tweeted etc ;)

And things seem to have come briskly back to life here now too. Those youtube clips play fine and speed test comes straight up now.

Island Bay, 100/10 cable tested over ethernet:

9pm update, as promised:

Things are looking up!

Downstream speed is up to 31 Mbps  undecided  ...



This is the worst speed result that I have had since September.

Foo's youtube videos play OK, streaming at 10 - 15 Mbps.

I'm only getting marginally better speeds. I'm on a 130/10 Mbps plan, though, so that means I'm getting under 50% of advertised speed...



I'm certainly not looking forward to the dreaded 9 pm congestion tonight. *sigh*

Under 50% is a bit rubbish then. My family is engaging in Battlefront right now. This time last night or the night before they started getting the server disconnections as we dropped off the map. We shall see how it evolves tonight.
