You can never have enough Volvos!
Blygh: Not sure about the last couple of weeks, but before I left XNet XNet I was limited to 5.8 - 7.9KB/s ftp to US servers during the evening when trying to patch games (PPM plan). AT 7:30AM I could get 200-300KB/s. If that's not terrible service on a "normal" plan, then I'd love to know what is.
Niel: At the moment there are unhappy customers complaining because they can not download 30GB (or more) a month for free on the Torrent plan, but the whole torrent plan as a concept is flawed (although it did get torrents off peak time so things improved for everyone else).
holmesr: and I thought I might seek other peoples opinions before I commit to anything, what is the service like etc we were with Xtra/Telecom beforehand and always got highly reliable speeds with them. Is there any contracts to agree to etc? any help in this would be greatly appreciated and I would head to the website myself except I'm on dial-up at this current point in time and these things are quite painful to load TIAStay well clear of Xnet at the moment, Xtra will be a better option.Speeds are horribly slow during 5pm-11pm to the point where streaming video requires 5 minute waits for 1 minute videos.
sultanoswing: Great stuff. With everyone bailing from, or no longer signing up to Xnet, perhaps the speed for we remaining users will improve to previous levels.
pistolpower: lol kerrin i would prefeer if they put the price of broadband up but made it better to and removed broadband. And then i could come on here and not see incompetent low level users like you who reckon because i use bandwidth that i pay for, that i should be in a pool of other people who pay for your network. Dude if you want to go somewhere without high users go somewhere like vodafone with their 1gb homephone and dsl plans and fail there lol.
