@MDF

 

There have been upgrades rolling out throughout April that should have helped drop outs.

Interesting.  I'm on node WKO and have noticed my IP address has changed a few times in the last few days.  I haven't got a static address but it doesn't usually change very often.  I connection seemed unresponsive afterwards too requiring a reboot.

I've found WKH/Island Bay *much* more stable of late. @disrespective and @sideface might like to chime in with their experiences too.  <snip>

 

 

I'm on FibreX 200 in Island Bay, node WKH3.

 

Agreed - the service has been much better recently.

 

In the last 10 days I have had only one outage - from 12:25am to 1:35am on Wednesday 19 April (as recorded by PRTG software - I was asleep):

Real-world international download speeds have also improved - they are now as good as my old 100/10 Mbps cable connection.  wink

TrueNet March 2017 Urban Broadband Report

This is a very detailed report, well worth reading. Here are some brief extracts:

Vodafone's Homegrown Congestion

"Vodafone shows a strong decline during the day and into the evening, in stark contrast to all other ISP results on any fixed line technology."

March 2017: Vodafone Webpage Speed by Technology



March 2017: NZ Webpage Average Speed

 

In fairness to Vodafone, this report covers March - in my experience there has been some improvement in April (FibreX - see my last post).

Out of interest, people who can stream Netflix in 4K, how are you getting on at peak time?

 

Trying one at the moment on my Sony Android TV (latest 2017 firmware), seems to be sitting on 15.26mb, 2160 res.

yea not great for netflix. It is getting alot worse now. Its like they are trying to prioritize certain connections. My torrents are still flying in at 90mb/s or as fast as the hdd can write. I think that is mostly due to lots of small connections. 1 big file transfer or a stream and the connection dies at night. Even youtube is stuttering 1080p some nights.
However if there is a local host its better. Steam i get 50mb/s.

I believe that all the issues are on the backend and not so much the nodes that feed us this time. Im on gigabit getting speedtests 930/100.

I have a Question. Fibre has been run on my street as of last week. Which ISP has the best Enable Fibre connection in chch? With static IP?

NOT Vodafone - they will refuse to supply fibre if you are at a "cable" address (cable has a higher profit margin).

That's cool. This policy means they will get 100% customer loss if the requirement is fibre.

Vodafone are really grinding my gears at the moment.

 

 

 

No config changes .... (I've been away) and the connection does this.

Speaking of uncorrectable errors, should I be worried about this?
