I saw an article in the Herald today that said in Finland it's citizens are guaranteed 1mbps speeds as a right. If we had that here Orcon would be well in breach of my rights.

I'm just on Purple (not the Orcon+ ADSL2 network) so speedwise that is about max for me. It is true that ping is just over double what I normally receive though.

I really just pitched in to say I'm not experiencing any real net troubles tonight, to help with troubleshooting. For those having slowdown perhaps it is unique to Orcon+, or possibly even geographical.

I'm also on the Orcon purple plan (due to damn cabinetisation) and I'm still experiencing major delays. It's worse than dial-up....They'll definitely be getting a phone call tomorrow morning...
