So the honeymoon is long over. The NNTP 2MB download speeds i used to get are now down to 256KB. Orcon connections are becoming absolute rubbish. International traffic is a disaster.
The new Telecom plans sound good. Costs around the same as the Gold plan, same calling deals etc etc. The telecom download speeds have increased amazingly. It may be a maximum of close to 9MB consistantly, but the 9MB is on international traffic aswell. I am right now on a Telecom connection and I just tried LA, Sydney, 9MB, London 6MB.
At home, although i get a local connection speed at about 13MB on Orcon i tried LA, 3.2MB, Sydney 5.4MB, London 2.8MB. When I originally got the connection my speeds were about 19MB, but those were the dream days!
Orcon, Whats happening? This is rather disappointing.
