Ok will say being on a smaller town exchange at the moment I've def noticed today that ADSL has def slowed down.

Just done a test using nzdsl.co.nz:
Exchange: Te Aroha
Plan: Xnet 2mb/128k

Download Speed: 1419 kbps (177.4 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 109 kbps (13.6 KB/sec transfer rate)

International downloads seem to average at 30-50KB/sec at present (all day)

Anyone else finding the same? If so I'm guessing Telecom didn't think about upgrading Backhauls for fullspeed

This just goes to show what can be achieved with a good clean line outside of peak times:


As reported by Modem


Downstream Speed: 7616 kbps
Upstream Speed: 704 kbps

NZDSL Speedtest

Download Speed: 5464 kbps (683 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 499 kbps (62.4 KB/sec transfer rate)

These are the best results I've seen since the Full-speed JetStream plans were canned last year.

ISP is Paradise Net, exchange is Avondale.

All in all, not too shabby Cool
