I understand some ISPs publicly stated they were joining the DIA Internet filter initiative, while others did not disclose their policies, or exact dates of when they would start using it.

But I am seeing reports from users in many different ISPs of reduced Internet speeds - this seems to be happening across the board.

Could it be the DIA Internet filter is active in some ISPs and causing this slowness?

Take the tin foil hat off for a moment and let us know of any "info"...

Snap was bad over the weekend but they have a policy of "Opt in" for the filter, ie: if you want the filter you have to ask for it so i dont think that was the problem and its fine now so still not sure what happened.




Common sense is not as common as you think.

TCL cable in Wellington is appalling now and has been all morning - but only international sites - NZ sites load fine

Only certain ip addresses are advertised via BGP and routed to the DIA boxen for ISP's participating.

So basically nope, I think people are seeing a pattern where none exists.

A more likely cause is: increased congestion because of bad weather with more people indoors inter-netting it up.

Call me cynical but I'd also say Telstrclear problems are typical of their modus operandi.

yeh my father has had TCL cable for a number of years and we have noticed it has been slow for a good year now so I doubt that it is anything to do with the filter. I am with Ragnor I cvant see the filter doing much by way of bottlenecking to me the issue is more about what some idiot in the beehive is going to start using it for outside of the initial breif (lets face it it has already happened in Australia)

who watches the watchdogs.

yep, as ragnor said. the DIA filter isnt an actual filter - the ISP's traffic doesnt pass through their (DIA) servers. this should only really cause a slowdown for the people trying to visit dodgy sites. i think you need to put the blame back on your ISP for poor performance

i havent noticed and differences in speed using callplus
