TheBartender: Nice to hear your connection is fine Niel...mine is crawling at a snails pace.
You can never have enough Volvos!
Niel: It is 1:45 on a Sunday morning, unusual for me to be awake but since I have returned from a trip to South Africa... My modem sync at about 9.5 Mbps. Speed to XNet was slow over lunch, a bit over 3 Mbps. Now in "torrent time" my speed to XNet is 7.9 Mbps, to Sydney is 1.7 Mbps, and to LA is 7.2 Mbps. If there is a speed issue, then I do not see it other than expected fluctuations likely due to exchange congestion. Everyone is not experiencing the "problem", unless all torrner users switched ISP yesterday.
I'm sure someone will ask: Fusion, non-torrent, Pakuranga exchange, static IP, 2x VFX lines.
PS: VFX worked perfectly clear between NZ and SA even though in SA we were on about 380 kbps.
PPS: Someone probably already noticed GeekZone is not dealing well with our daylight saving time.

TameIti: Yeah, guys, the L.A Speedtest server is inaccurate. More specifically the FastSoft server. When I did a L.A speedtest I'd get either very poor speeds with a ping of about 205ms or very (6mbps+) good speeds with a ping of 175ms on the FastSoft server. This can occur within seconds of each other. The FastSoft server is either giving false readings or it could be routing to a more local server.
JayADee: Is that the LA speedtest at https://www.speedtest.net/index.php you're talking about? Because that's the one I usually use for overseas tests. If it's that one, I'll change to another city.
