Evver since late Saturday afternoon the Vodafone cable service has been slow in Chch.

 

Videos are very hard to watch

 

I do notice in the Krapi cable thread , this :

 

since this late afternoon, Christchurch inhome cable became really slow on downstream. 2-5mbps on my 130mpbs old plan. now, at 2300, I get 0.2mbps, srsly wtf? upstream seems unaffected.

 

Anyone else with this problem ?

Yes, me! Since yesterday, we have been getting really poor download speeds from fast servers including Akamai, UCmirror, Chch Vodafone speediest server etc but good upload.

 

Youtube stutters or plays 240p, iTunes previews take 10min to buffer a 2min video, downloads go at 300KiB/s, regardless where from and including tests of http downloads from ucmirror which is just 11ms away at the uni.

 

We are on 130/10 cable in Christchurch. This is 10x slower than anything I've seen in 2 years+

 

Upload is good, >8Mbps.

 

Last night was about 4/8, this morning is 8/10:

It's been consistently bad for me as well, both last night and this morning.

Glad I'm not the only one with the issue, Sockburn here, pretty far from North Brighton, so sounds like it's widespread.

 

Particularly happy that it's probably not my modem. Would be loath the downgrade from a Cisco to a Thompson.

Well I called support, they're aware there's an issue with speeds in Christchurch, they thought they'd fixed it, and they're looking into it further.

Yup, in New Brighton, Avondale and Linwood. Ping is all over the place (between 200 and 900ms) to America, constant 10% packet loss, and 3mb/sec down on a 100/10 connection since Saturday morning. I'm even having issues with sites hosted in Christchurch.

Yea there's definitely something wrong here. I'm located in Cashmere and have never had any sort of congestion.

Apologies for lack of notice on website, the network team is investigating and working on it now.

Been affecting me in Hei Hei since yesterday too. Interestingly, downloads through Torrents still reaches full speed, it's just browsing, videos, speedtest, etc that is going slowly.

Noticed that too. I wasn't quite getting full speeds (probably only about 60%) but still miles better than my steam downloads which are sub 100KBps :P

Patchy, poor speeds for me also - western Christchurch on 50/2 cable. Just did a bunch of beta.speedtest.net tests to 3 different Chch-based servers and results were very dependent on the server: every test to Vodafone was around 8 Mbps, all tests to Two Degrees were even worse at around 4-5 Mbps, and all tests to CallPlus got a near-full speed 49 Mbps result.
