Hi,

Recently I've switched to Orcon's Naked DSL. At first day, the speed was great. I was downloading Movies from RS at 800KB or 1MB.
Now, I'm downloading at 33KByte/s.

I've just tested download and upload speed at https://www.speedtest.net/
My download speed is 6089kb/s=761Kbytes/ and upload speed is 817kb/s=102Kbyt/ss.

I thought I would get more faster speed with Naked DSL.

What's your average speed?

Naked DSL has nothing to do with speed

As stated by John, Naked DSL doesn't guarantee or deliver you with better speeds.

It is only for people who want to do away with their telephone connection (but they are charged a little more as the phone line is still physically connected to the network)

Purple+ is the only true "naked" plan by Orcon. And if you are on this one (or the other unbundled plans) - while it can deliver 24mbps download, speed is affected by anything as your computer, to your modem/router, line filter, phone line, port at the exchange to just the servers at Orcon and abroad.

Doesnt Telecoms naked DSL gets assigned a higher minimum bitrate through the network? But that is only an issue if you are affected by really serious congestion within the exchange for some reason — unlikely if you are on ADSL2+ equipment because they should assign enough bandwidth anyway. So the speed might be a little more consistent but virtually no diffence.

If you are getting ADSL line problems then you might want to disconnect all other jackpoints and just connect ADSL to the master jack. Otherwise, the speeds you quoted appeare suspiciously like ADSL rather than ADSL2, so try a different router.




Time to find a new industry!
