My name is Thomas, and I'm the Chief Technical Officer at Orcon. We have been investigating reports of slows international speeds for some time now, and we've done some fairly extensive work, particularly over the last 3 nights. I'd like to seek some feedback regarding the results of this work.
We have been performing speed tests to various sites from UBS DSL and LLU connections. These are specific sites that users like yourselves have reported slowness to, some of which include:
Plus various other HTTP and FTP sites as well.
This evening we've noticed a fairly significant improvement to most of the above sites, plus a general improvement in all-round "feel". I'd be keen to get some feedback from members here as to their experience - whether you too have noticed improvement this evening; if some sites have improved but other haven't; or if nothing has changed. It would be particularly useful if people could post links to actual sites or files that they are having problems with.
Thanks in advance for your help with this - we're as keen as you all are to get this nailed and speeds back to their normal greatness...
