I swapped from 10mb xtra plan to 20mb Vodafone/Ihug plan over the weekend.
I live in the CBD opposite Sky City
I have 30 odd webistes all designed using a host/ templatre company in the UK.
AS of today (since I first used new connection), non of those sites are loading properly- either very slow, not at all or not 100%.
Vodafone have denied any understanding of why.
The hosting company in the UK have never had this problem in the past 4 years and have always sent out emails 24 hours or more before any urgent work needed to be done.
The test suggested in another thread on this forum gavc me the following: 11086kbps dowload and 631 upload- which sounds OK.
The websites in question are all Flash animated. www.wmdemo2.co.nz, www.andimerkens.co.nz , www.ravencarter.com, www.admiralslanding.co.nz
If you check them out- any blanck spaces on the sites are missing images. All sites are 100% full of content. If you wait long enough they will load.
My guess is that Vodafone have some issues with Flash animated sites/ download. BUt xtra seems to be OK.
If Vodafone cannot provide timely download of Flash content- then we are going backwards in terms of internet delivery surely.
Any feedback appreciated.
