What do you guys call poor speeds? I get around hmm maybe 250kbs if im lucky but other than that 220kbs. Now i think that is poor speeds. IF it drops below 150kbs i start to worry about my internet. But i see you some of you guys get speed up to like 700kbs like my uncle gets. I just want to know what you guys call  poor speeds or if what i get is avrage. By the way im on ihug Full up and down speeds.

Just having a consistency check... you said you're using bb3, that's FS/128k

I would call anything that doesn't allow you to watch TVNZ's 128k streaming as very poor (I had constant disconnections for the last week until today).

Poor would be - waiting twice as long for a YouTube video to load (they're pretty low quality, so they should load fine)

First up, please post you router model, ADSL sync speeds and line stats. Without this info, we can not say what speeds you are likely to achieve. The speeds you are getting, may well be what you can expect for your line (based on distance from exchange etc).




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
