This issue has been going on for the last month, its seprate from those other threads why do you think i posted a new thread !!!

I dont have drop out issues or random buggy issues the international speeds during the day have gone to the dogs and I want to no if other users have the same issues and if so is xnet biting of more then they can chew again with international bandwidth ??

Have spoken to xnet and they fob you off like good csr's they are.

It's already been discussed by multiple threads for the past few months.There's no point of asking a question where thousand of threads already have supply you with a suffient answer

I got the same, Do a Speedtest of Auckland the speeds are between 5400Kb/s   and 13000Kb/s, but for the international, say Sydney the speedtest is only 64Kb/s.I think Xnet has locked or limited the speeds for someone who download from international sites

Don’t forget that its currently the school holidays. As XNET has a large residential user base, I’m sure you will find that it’s the bulk of the "slow down" within normal daytime.

In this case it’s not going to be something exclusive to XNET either. This effects all ISP’s to one degree or another.
