Having worked at an ISP helpdesk before I am hesitant to spend to obligatory 45 minutes on hold, so I thought I would table this here.
Over the last week my browsing speed for anything outside of NZ has dropped off to what I would describe as dialup pre jetstart era.
Gaming, Ventrillo etc are fine in NZ and AU. But any sort of standard browsing is just pointless.
With netstat running I see around 7-10k speeds loading pages and pictures offshore, local is totally fine.
I get the usual 9ish MB down, 2MB up on my speedtests, and my ping is fine, no packet loss. Hell even the speedtest page takes 20 seconds to load.
I can whack a rev wireless card into a laptop and its all totally fine.
My question for you guys is are you experiencing the same thing? It is bloody frustrating not being able to surf what I want, when I want. 90% of what I browse/download is offshore as it is for the majority of you reading this post.
