I understand that everyone is sitting at home watching netflix, watching youtube etc but I was told by someone that fibre thrives on having more people using it? Maybe I'm wrong and I am going to have to put up with these amazing full speed fibre speeds for the next 4 - 12 weeks. :(

More information please:
1) Have you rebooted your Router / ONT?
2) WiFi or Ethernet, and if WiFi - use Ethernet.

 

Nothing wrong with internet in NZ. Chorus operate a mostly congestion free network and your ISP should have enough bandwidth for demand. I'm still personally getting normal speeds on my Gigabit connection.

brookz: I was told by someone that fibre thrives on having more people using it?

 

Fibre doesn't speed up with more people, if that's what you mean, but it also doesn't slow down when it has a lot of users (unlike, say, wireless). However, if your ISP has limited bandwidth then you'll get lower speeds; your connection to the ISP would still be fast, but the connection from the ISP to the Internet might be slower.

 

That's a little oversimplified, but hopefully gets the point across :)

Hi there,

 

From our side, there are no widespread network or capacity issues right now. As others have mentioned, we'll need a bit more information. You can start by checking out our help page on broadband speed issues - if you have no luck there, get in touch with our Technical Support team so we can investigate further.

Seems to be of happened around the time most ISPS had a spaz, only problem a handful of times a day is the internet dropping out and requiring a modem reset. Otherwise it seems to be coping quite well regardless. Cheers!

Been having issues again during the nights, what follows a disconnection is fairly slow speeds for full speed fibre.

@brookz You need to provide further details as per the above. Without this nobody can assist. Router model, how you're connected to it (Ethernet or WiFi), what other troubleshooting you've done.

 

It is pointless just providing Speedtests and blaming your ISP.

Agreed 100%.

To the OP
>99% of the time internet issues aren’t internet/ISP issues but home network issues.

Internet has been fine at our place, all through lockdown.  That's with up to: Two people zooming/teaming, 1 watching Netflix (4K if applicable), 1 multiplayer online gaming and spotify running too.

@brookz

 

What is the 'full speed fibre' plan that you are on? 900/400, 100/20, 30/10?

 

You need to do more isolation tests. i.e. One computer via ethermet cable to your router...

 

Use a Windows Speed Test app. Do not use your browser speed test link as your browser may be crippling the results.

 

Show us a few screen snapshots, while you are doing tests, of your speed test and task manager ethernet and CPU performance.

 

Also include a snapshot of your ethernet status.
