Run this speed test: http://www.nzdsl.co.nz/module-Speedtest.phtml. I am on Telstra cable 2Mb/2Mb and my results are as follows:
Test one:1897/1355
Test two:1835/1423
Test three:1902/1490

What do you get?

So you are on the same plan as me. Where abouts do you live? I was interested to see what other people were getting because I thought I was getting too slow. The results I posted are improved from the ones I was disappointed with though.

P.S, I ment to post this in "broadband" for all connections, not just TCL so if a mod want's to move it, that'd be good.

Edit: wow that was fast, thanks.

Oh ffs, mate, how is anyone meant to make use of the data if they can't identify where it's comming from?

Should I change my on screen name so you can't identify my using the white pages?  What's your issue with a phone number?

It's like a yoyo... 

Yesterday www.tcn.bowenvale.co.nz was fantastic on my father inlaws TC account.... tonight it sucked but it's not to bad on my Orcon ADSL account.

I can watch server load and know that we have a 100mbit pipe into the machine.

Cheers Don

What's your issue with a phone number? 
Robots that go around harvesting e-mail addresses, phone numbers, etc are really a pain. That's why it's not a good idea to have these on a public page.
