It's really bad tonight. Several sites are flat-out not loading, and games are incredibly unstable or experiencing unnaturally high latency. My flatmate reported packet loss of >70%.

The connection is completely unusable for playing games tonight. I'm seeing absolutely absurd latency spikes and it's beyond frustrating.

This is the second night in the row that the connection has been in a pretty much broken state. We'll probably have to phone up Vodafone or something. :\

And now we can't get to YouTube. It stopped working for me, and then a flatmate managed to come to me and complain about it before I could get to him and complain about it. Both of my flatmates are complaining about it now, actually!

That's three nights in a row where some site or game has gone completely to hell, not to mention some difficulties this past weekend. *sigh*

I didn't complain about it last night because I was so tired I went to bed at 7:30pm. 

I am sure Vodafone would like everyone to go to bed at 7:30pm so that no one would try using their service and complain ;)

Having issues again tonight for the fourth evening in a row. It feels like it's just one problem after another with this ISP. :(

Our Internet connection was basically dead when I got home. It could take several minutes to load some page, and then things just went down. After rebooting everything, it's now having difficulties accessing certain sites (like speedtest.net). Some sites are fine, and others aren't.

Once speedtest.net loaded, though, the results were fine. Seeing the 130/10 in the test. But it's not performing anywhere near that in actual, real-world use.

Have had issues tonight in Woodridge, Wellington tonight, and for the last few nights. Netflix keeps stopping for long periods then wont reach 1080p. Last night after getting half way through a movie my wife was forced to stop watching when it would no longer load!

Interesting you mention this. Seems to be ok for us *most of the times* although last night Amazon had a hiccup (Fire TV menus) and even though we could browse on our laptops, the Amazon Fire TV couldn't reach Amazon servers to show its menu. Then when we were watching something on Hulu it stopped two thirds of a TV episode in, so we had to wait and restart a bit later.
