Well, having moved over from Aussie to NZ, i just signed up with Iconz ADSL (15GB full speed). I got it working today and my jaw nearly dropped from the 1) The huge latency and 2) The slow speed to USA (max download is approx 400 Kilobytes per second - normally i can max out any connection to this server as has multi gigabit connections). My temp. Telecom 3G card is perfoming better!

Surely there is a better provider out there or is this the type of internet that i can expect in Auckland metro ?

Line details - quite good:

Welcome to NZ phez Cool

Looking at your ICONZ Tracert details, it looks like asianetcom (ICONZ upstream provider) maybe having problems.....

To give you a comparison here is my Tracert from Xtra (On Go large)

Before you do, have you contacted ICONZ about this??

thanks Stu for replying !

Yes, I have already written to Iconz and provided the same information. Hopefully they will investigate and not provide a some generic "thats how the internet works too bad" type of response, thinking everyone are idiots.

Thanks for providing your Xtra tracert, nice numbers you have there!

Is it common practice for NZ ISPs to put you in "shaping" pools before you exceed your download limit ?

Cheers,
Phez

Asianetcom are now known as Pacnet FYI and have been for some months. Updating reverse dns enteries does not appear to be high on their list however.

I don’t think Iconz, are that type of ISP, I have heard quite good thing about them....

If you don’t get much luck with writing to Iconz, maybe try giving them a ring?

Thanks for providing your Xtra tracert, nice numbers you have there!


Thanks, they are not too bad for Xtra Go large (although I think they could be better, as the Go Large plain has had some major problems in the past…)

Is it common practice for NZ ISPs to put you in "shaping" pools before you exceed your download limit ?

I don’t think any NZ ISP’s do that (unless you where on Xtra go large, but that’s a different story….), as far as I am aware, the only thing many of them do is shap p2p.

Hope this is of some help

Thanks for that info Fraktul Smile

Have you heard back from ICONZ regarding this phez? I was having a similar issue, which was apparently caused by ICONZ maxing-out their international bandwidth. My speeds are much better now, I think they upgraded their link to AsiaNetCom...

Hello DW,

Yes, I heard back from ICONZ, the issue was related to Dynamic IP allocation pool not having enough International bandwidth. Those with static IPs were OK. They set my IP to static temporarily and it was resolved.

Cheers
