Wills1: Ping is bad again tonight 341ms to Auckland

You should reboot your modem, it isn't as bad as that.

 

 



There does appear to be a problem with the speed though, way less from when I signed up just over a month ago now. Here's a Traceroute:

traceroute to murfy.co.nz (116.90.133.111), 64 hops max, 52 byte packets
 1  sakura (192.168.2.1)  1.665 ms  1.246 ms  0.943 ms

 7  vz-1.unleash.net.nz (116.90.133.1)  62.693 ms  62.211 ms  65.986 ms


traceroute to geekzone.co.nz (202.175.128.164), 64 hops max, 52 byte packets

 2  192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1)  4.882 ms  4.849 ms  4.762 ms

 4  221.143.109.203.core.vf.net.nz (203.109.143.221)  59.634 ms  57.708 ms  63.737 ms
 5  unassigned.core.vf.net.nz (203.109.143.222)  62.028 ms  57.318 ms  57.302 ms


I actually would like fast local speeds since quite often I actually need to transfer files from work, there's no real excuse from slow local speeds, I can understand international since those pipes get filled quite quickly but local I would expect to almost be maxing out my line with these traceroutes.

Finally got connected to vodafone last night and was happy to find I was getting 11-12Mb/s to Auckland at 8pm with no latency issues.

I've been on Voda's naked BB for a few days now. Awesome speeds 24/7, able to max my connection out, 40ms pings in games to Aussie servers, webpages are quick. Very impressed.
