Just returned from overseas, and for last night, and tonight, my international speeds have dropped to the point that every international connection times out!

This includes my bank websites,, everything at all, except sites hosted in NZ....

This is really unacceptable.  Slow is OK, understandable..  But not the point that websites can't even load!

Have any other users experienced this the last 2 nights?  And yes..  I WILL log this with the Xnet helpdesk tommorow.

This has generally been the case since XNet implemented their Torrent plan, however there are people who say that on the pay-per-meg plan it is bareable at night.

Which plan are you on?

This issue has already been discussed in many other threads, so I'm locking it.
