Hi people:

I live in New Lynn, Auckland and I'm on Ihug's 3.5/128 plan. It seemed to be fine for the last week or so, but now, my 3.5M is down to 333k! Can't play CS (250+ ping!), can't use Bittorrent (takes me 5 minutes to load Google while it's on!), can't really do anything other than browsing through Trademe and spamming on forums... :(

Just want to know if any of you is getting a 3.5M connection at <=512k speeds - is it just my crappy line or is it the whole NZ network is f-ed?

Please post your LOCATION, ISP, PLAN and DOWNSTREAM SPEED here if you're having the same/similar problems as I do.

Thanks!
