From this week, I'm experiencing very slow connection speed on my GoLarge plan.

Even Telecom's own test metre shows its only 974kbps downstream.

Are they abandoned GoLarge customers completely?

I wasn't looking for 2mbps+ international access, but 974kbps in domestic is kind of insult

Last night I phoned xtra as I was having problems receiving emails. I was told that there was a problem and it affected all Go Large customers.

The problem seems to have been resolved this morning. On the issue of speeds I have experienced the same problem, IE Go large becomes Go Slow.

Oh yes i am so sorry guys for having a younger brother who likes youtube and online flash games and a older/younger brother [younger than me] who likes World of Warcraft.

So sorry :(

[thats annoying though, we should have the speeds we were promised instead of having to share with everyone]

Since school holidays have started, I'm back to the usual sluggish speeds.
There seems to be a relationship between automobile traffic & internet traffic
One gets better at the expense of the other.
