MarkDn: what exactly do you do at Vodafone?.

Vodafone employes Tim to abuse people on geekzone :D . Sometimes he forgets and helps instead. 


Bang on!
Well, What i do at Vodafone isnt in the question.
With the speedtest attached it is completely possible to listen to an internet radio and at the same time use wikipedia and other tools commonly used to do homework via. Easily login to a school intranet etc.




Sure it is, I just asked you what you do.... its called logic pal

I think the Quote was "he can't communicate with his friends as he want's to"  KEY words being "AS HE WANTS TO"    , qualified his statement with "as he wants to" you stripped that off for your straw-man troll post.


Actually go back and check my post. I think you'll find (hint, you will) that I actually trimmed the original message, leaving in the key words you mention immediately above my reply.

My post wasn't a troll at all and it appears to me that you're being disingenuous by suggesting it.

No, you mis quoted him for the purpose of  a simple strawman argument.   i.e complete waste of time.   We're not peasants on here  you know....

I know people on this thread have been talking about the need to for UFB/fast copper etc for Facebooking, Wikipedia, high resolution Trademe images, and faster loading Stuff life style pages and so on, but honestly I find the biggest drain/bandwidth hog is actually 1080p adult content.  My VDSL really gets a work out with this stuff.

Well considering i got 17a running 65Mb/s 4K seems to do the trick for me.

Personal Opinion:  Sorry I stopped reading at Page 6, apologies if this has been covered!

My understanding is the current RBI Rollout finishes in the next year or two.  Communities should be petitioning their local MPS (of both colours) for Election year announcements for the next round of RBI that would address all remaining areas not currently covered by UFB/RBI.  We all pay into this funding through our Telco bills and taxes and this would support Chorus to finish this work, given all the issues going on.

So, checking in a couple of weeks later, how's your petition coming along Tim? Have you sent it anywhere yet?

Also (again sorry if you've mentioned this), have you logged a fault through your provider to Chorus for Slow Throughput?  These are all monitored and may affect future investment decisions, even if there is no fix provided at the time.

Hi All

Yes time for an update, been too long feeling sorry for myself,,,

@pjamieson
Yes done all the fault finding including master splitter, new modem, requesting the odd speed test from others in the community finally pinpointing it squarely at the Chorus backhaul.  Unfortunately though there is no fault in the eyes of Chorus as even though the Chorus backhaul is woefully under provisioned causing our (and others on the BUBA service) evening congestion issues the pitiful 0.4Mb/s to 0.7Mb/s average speed is way above the regulated minimum of 0.032Mb/s.  

@quickymart
It is being submitted to the house of representatives tomorrow.  Next Monday we have organised a Public Meeting here and asked representatives from a few businesses to attend along with Chorus and Vodafone for an open discussion.

More to come...

Tim

Some will still dream of having your connection, shame it isn't good enough for you.
