I've noticed a serious drop in speed, usually get a rock solid 10Mpbs, now sitting between 2-4Mpbs. reset modem and it shoots back up to 10Mpbs. Wife is also noticing our VOIP line on 2Talk is rubbish and is threating she wants a dedicated line back.

JC1600:
also - if we switch back to say Telecom ADSL and phone line (currently with telstra) will a tech be requried to come do some rewiring and a fee applied?

Nope international traffic is still fine for me, I can get into my servers in both Perth and Los Angeles and web traffic seems fine (I can access abc.go.com for example). I have no idea how their network is routed but you'll probably only be 1-2km away from me if you're in Mairehau, I'm just north of North Avon Rd.
