Just wondering how other xnet users found the torrent plan last night? I am in Mairehau, Christchurch area
It was the worst I had ever seen it last night. I had all my downloads qued off rapidshare premium server to start at midnight - had about 700M I wanted to download (yep 1 movie).
Had a quick look at 7.30am - thinking I only wanted 700M surely they are all done... and it wasnt even through the first 100M file!
In 7 & 1/2 hours it downloaded 86Meg!!!! - was running at about 3.0K/s (slower than a 33.6k modem!!!!)
This is the worst I have ever struck - So phoned xnet who said it is currently being fine tuned and to hold tight for a couple of days (which I will happily do) then they added "although if you were not on the torrent plan then you would of had full speed."
Surely they cant sell this plan as FS down when infact they cap it? I thought thats what other ISP's got in trouble for last year?????
Then got talking to another mate on the otherside of my town in Riccarton (who i recoomended xnet too) and he said he was getting 100k/s+ over night (still not fast but easily workable)!
How can he being in the same city get 100k/s over night and me only get 3K/s overnight? I guess xnet cap per area exchange then..
So now im wondering how everybody else on the torrent plan found the speed last night
