Well ive been a telecom go large customer since it came out and continued after it was discontinued.
When i first got it i used to be able to download music movies in under a minute or in about 3 hours.
Now when i used bearshare i get less then 5 kb per second.
I purcheased counter strike source yesterday i cant even get it to download. Its at 18% and keeps jumping to 15 KB to 10 to 5 to 2 to Zero or 889bytes Now i cant get it to download at all. I do the telecom speed tests i get good decent speeds(312KB). Yet when i use these it doesnt work. Downloadint hotmail attachments is slow to with 3 mb photos taking 15 minutes to download.

Ive tryed port forwarding i cant work out this problem.
Xtra telecom help is freaking USELESS. Hell i cant even understand the indian guy im talking to lol.
Can u please help me, The people at geek zone seem to know more about the internet then the people that run it do.
Help a noob out pleae

Your options are quite limited, as Go Large is "managed" (key words), and is no longer for resale. There were credits issued for the 3 months, as well as the ability to disconnect without peality. A lot of those managed plans have more limited bandwidth pools (see the Woosh example) and so throughput issues are not as easily troubleshooted as the conventional plans.

Its either:
  • Switch plans to an "unmanaged" plan, ie. one with a cap
  • Switch providers and plan to an "unmanaged" plan.
Keep in mind that some of the exploits that people get upto on Go Large, ie. Downloading 100GB for 49.95 is not attainable on most* unmanaged plans, unless you want to play for it.

I used Bearshare when I lived in Japan a few times on my 55mb adsl connection and got crap download speeds.
Every other file sharing software I tried got fantastic speeds.
I'd be pointing the blame at Bearshare here - not your isp
