I have an issue that is really bizarre and no one seems to be able to fix it.
It has spanned two houses now as I have recently moved and the issue has persisted.
Just today Chorus was around here and confirmed what I have known all along.
My line is fine, my cabinet is fine I get around 18MBPS from each to the provider.
I can speedtest to the Orcon server in Auckland at around 15-16MBPS and that is where it ends
If I run the same speedtest to any overseas server my speed falls through the floor, I consider a "good" day at the moment if I hit 4MBPS. but it is usually around 2MBPS or less.
What the hell is causing this and why is it so hard for them to fix it?
In addition to this problem every few days the international connection just shuts down. Between 10pm and 1am and taking anywhere from an hour through to the rest of the night to resolve itself. Rebooting the modem does not help.
When this happens I can open New Zealand sites although they take ages to load but nothing international will work for me.
This tells me the problem has to be somewhere on the international link at Orcon and since there isn't another 1000 people screaming about this its probably only me with the issue.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
