Last night, just because I read another thread where someone was having speed problems I decided to run a speedtest. I got about 8 Mbps and that was all good.

Since then we had one long outage last night and a couple short outages this morning.

At the moment speedtest shows 269 Kbps down. 

Is anyone else in Wellington having these problems today?

I am not at home atm, so I am not sure what mine is like.

However lastnight, from 1030pm onwards there were mico-outages. These could only be fixed with a modem restart.
This was happening s often that I just gave up and went to bed eventually.

I guess I will be getting a phone call from the GF when she jumps on the computer soon....

Just did a speedtest.

Wellington, 1.4mbps. (Citylink)
Auckland, 4.8mbps    (WorldXchange)
Napier, 7.6mbps (Airnet)


That's a completely, totally messed up set of numbers.

It's embarrassing that I get better speed from the connection to Sydney and Melbourne than I do to Auckland and Wellington.

I get better speed to Sydney than I do to downtown Wellington!

This has been discussed here several times now. Most of the larger ISP's in NZ do not have a peering agreement with citylink and therefore your speedtest with them may be going via LA.
