Hey, I'm new to these forums so hello to you all.

For the last couple days my ping in games have risen quite abit. Usually its around 50-60 but now its around 160-250. It's not just me, most nz players are getting pounded with this ping too. Starts around 6pm and ends around 11pm. So frustrating. Also my download speeds have reduced so much from US servers. They were usually around 700kbs but now they are round 200kbs.

What the hell telecom!

Welcome to the state of real NZ broadband, why not move to Wattle Downs, Auckland where downloads are never higher than 300KBPS and ping is at no less than 100. Some days I would rather brave the cold conditions in england to have decent internet.
