Am trying to watch something on ustream, my connection seems to be maxing out about 150 kilobit on the ustream, which is a problem when the low quality stream is 350-400.

Nothing else using the connection. graphs on pachube of it here http://www.pachube.com/feeds/3721

Am wondering if this bout of really bad is because of them trying to add a static IP's reverse DNS or soemthing (dont see how that would be related)

speedtest to wxc






Then I stopped torrents and the problem stream and managed to get the following "improvement"







finally anotehr local one to show that the line is able to deliver more.




So, whats up guys? this is pretty lousy.

Working as per normal. About 1mbps slower line speed but it's a Friday night, congestion is to be expected.

National isnt a problem. Can you do a couple on some of the left coast US servers and see what you get?

Can you see if any of the prerecorded content on http://live.twit.tv/ will play - thats normally ok for me but its hopeless at the moment.

Does anything on ustream.tv play for you? Even theowlbox is giving me stutters.

I dont think slingshot's peak is evenings anymore - i find its more 2am to 8am that they have the bigger speed drop when all the p2p users are on

It has dropped out completely for me (in Nth east Chch) the last 2 nights from about 7pm.  Has only just come online again about 9:30 this morning.  If it wasn't for the fact that I would have to spend half an hour on the phone waiting to talk to someone and then for them to have no idea what the problmem may have been I would be trying to find out more but sadly it seems pointless...

c71931f: It hasn't been too bad for me




Thats irrelevent because it is national. Not been having problems nationally or with things when the cache kicks in (like some youtubes etc) its internatioal streaming that the cache doesnt get involved with that is the problem.

Works ok on a xnet connection which really is saying something.
