Upper Riccarton here, and I've also been getting awful speeds on the HFC network during the evening - I've recently been dropping below 10mbit/s on my 100mbit/s plan! I'm having to avoid decent streaming video entirely because of slowdowns and lag. Here are two speedtest results done this evening. Is there anything I can do to make this better, or does Vodafone really need to upgrade the network in our area?





Here it is on a good evening:



(I find it interesting that the upstream stays solid all the time, even getting to the point where my upstream is faster then my downstream!)
(And yes, I have restarted my router/modem, it's not an issue on my end. Both tests done on gigabit ethernet)

Have you logged a fault for slow peak time speeds on Cable?

Riccarton is student flat central, and HFC is shared bandwidth media, so yeah I can believe it would be terrible during peak hour.






Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

There is UFB around here IIRC. Honestly just change to a provider like Snap that'll offer UFB.

What is the process for doing this?

It's being installed, but it's not yet available.
