I thought I would create a thread to discuss only the speeds achieved during the free data weekend (2nd Dec 2011).

I was going to get screenshots throghout the period and the first one I got already gave me something to think. It's ten minutes before the "free" period, and my 10 Mbps upload speeds are down to 1.2 Mbps. This way I won't be able to add all the files I wanted to my existing Crashplan backup:

About 10mins before 6pm I did a speed test a CHCH server (where i am) and got 15Mbits down and 1.59Mbits up, 15mins later it was 4Mbits down and 1.58 up which seems like quite a drop but then i started all the downloads i had waiting and they are cruising along at a total speed of between 1.1MB/s and 1.6MB/s.

So my connection seems pretty standard at the moment.

Ok 30 mins in and I'm not looking so good on the download side... I'm not running anything personally right now, but my max dl is 30% down.

Torrent download speeds was bouncing up and down like a yoyo, one minute I'm getting a reasonable 500kb/s, then it'll drop to 3kb/s, now sitting inbetween at about 200kb/s, but the night is young... as more people get home I'd imagine that is will crawl. I'm guessing they'll try and shape any torrent traffic as the demand gets higher?

I was seeing 14Mbps at 6pm, I dropped to 5Mbps for a while, now i'm back up to between 8 and 10Mbps on average. That's not bad performance, I bet their network is being hit harder than it's ever been hit before.

Online gaming to an international server is quite painful at the moment. What was once a 250ish ping (quite playable for in an MMO) is now 410 with 5-10% packetloss :(

Still no connection, and probably related to my problems last week when I had 12 hours without a connection, until the node was reset. Too much for 100 Mbps?

Calling TCL now.
