I joined XNET recently, and I have to say, this is the worst ISP I have ever used.

The national speeds are great. 5-6mbps, no complaints there.

However, the international speeds are terrible. I'm getting 400-800kbps overseas speeds, and that's during day hours.

After midnight, it becomes unusable, thanks to the torrenters.

 

What I want to know is, do they have any plans to fix it? If not, then I'm bailing. This is just sad.

This has already been extensively covered here on the forums, and here in Mauricio's blog.
Please have a read of both.

Oh for goodness sakes. If you don't like it move to another ISP. You could find the same problems at another ISP as well.

I'm a Drama Queen for expecting to get the service I pay for?

And you're wrong, other ISPs DONT have these problems. The last ISP I used (Xtra) was way faster, 6mbps both national AND international.

And don't worry, I intend to move to another ISP, however I want to give XNET a chance first, if they DO plan to fix this.

Yeah, what they said.

This is going to go nowhere so I am locking it.
