Cold rainy night (at least in Auckland) + school holidays for the win?

Alot of ISP's are currently having issues with international bandwidth, maybe slingshot is just another to join the club??

Fine at the moment, seems to be isolated to peak times, which is when I want to use it the most obviously.

Hope its not like this all winter.

How are the International speeds now?

Are they back to full speed at peaks times?
As I might be moving to Slingshot sometime after the 22nd (if orcon hasn't fixed there speed issues by then).
