Hey guys
just wondering if any1 else is having problems with vodafone as a ISP.

for 6 weeks now i have had a fault lodged with them cause my speed would never be over 2000 . heres a common test result . test@8.48pm 16/10
Download Speed: 1006 kbps (125.8 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 557 kbps (69.6 KB/sec transfer rate)
Latency: 729 ms
Ok so after almost 7 weeks after calling them every week to see what they're doing about and getting some BS excuse they call me and tell me they've fixed the problem.
which they have but my ping is really really crap. eg.Download Speed: 10042 kbps (1255.3 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 778 kbps (97.3 KB/sec transfer rate)
Latency: 587 ms
 so now i have logged another fault. great another 7 week waiting.
is anyone having problems or got any ideas in what might be causing this.

Sorry to ask this, but have u tried a new filter?

Your line stats show you should be getting more than 2000kbps (unless your test is done during peak times)
