It's interesting what these speed tests show:

Before 9pmAfter 9pm

My download speed has suddenly increased at 9pm!

There nearly is no difference in upload, so it looks like there is some sort of restriction, though Vodafone doesn't say.

Funny you should bring this up as last night I was downloading 3 torrents, nothing major only about 200mb in total but as I was watching the speeds they trippled just after 9:30pm. If it was just the one I wouldn't have thought much about it but for all 3 to go up at the same time left me wondering.

1700kbps is a nice throttled speed.

Seems more like Exchange Congestion. Also on Vodafone here and Consistent 6000kbps speeds throughout the day....

I don't think that the second most biggest exchange in Auckland suddenly has reduced usage at exactly 9pm?

manhinli: I don't think that the second most biggest exchange in Auckland suddenly has reduced usage at exactly 9pm?


Exchange does not have to be small or big to have congestion, If it's their, It's their. I have not seen any speed issues at all and just checked gpforums and no one seems to be talking about it. Are you on the Red Network? May be the Vodafone Equipment is playing up before 9pm?

Is there some sort of overload or congestion at Vodafone servers? Or is there something else?







Uploads are fine, but my downloads aren't!

I doubt it's exchange congestion, its more likely that 9pm is the time where some of the business users bandwdith is reallocated to residential users.

Thats just a theory though, I actually know nothing about Vodafones network.

HCK, cabinet: HCK/C*, distance to actual exchange around 2km, distance to cabinet 100m.

* this letter got painted over

I'm getting better speeds right now (well it's past 9pm!)

interesting, i'll have to test this tomorrow.  But then again, it might not apply to me, as I'm on a (very) old plan.

I suspect it is exchange congestion after all. None of the VF (or old ihug) plans has 9pm as a cut-off date for peak/off-peak.
If you're on cabinet (and it is a DSLAM cabinet) then you won't be migrated onto red network, at least for now.

I'm on Ultimate pack - so I'm not referring to the peak/off-peak like allowances like in the iinet ihug generation.

All I'm saying is that there was a sudden increase in speed at 9pm - something I didn't expect, and want the answer to. Traffic doesn't just turn off at 9pm, so what's behind it?
