Hi all,

Had been with telecom for the past year but have just moved to orcon in the last couple days as they had larger data plans for my needs, but the speeds im getting with orcon are terrible! I dont believe orcon have their own network etc in Hamilton area so I would assume im still on a telecom line through telecom wholesale, right? When I was with telecom running speedtest.net would show between 10-15mb/s down, now if i run speedtest.net I only get 4.25mb/s down and 0.14mb/s up. I live rather close to the local exchange too.
Using and P2P or torrent programs sees down speeds of only 20kb/s roughly.

What gives?!



Modem status:





DSL Status:
UP


DSL Modulation Mode:
G.992.5 (ADSL2+)


DSL Path Mode:
FAST


Downstream Rate:
14513 Kbps


Upstream Rate:
164 Kbps


Downstream Margin:
12 db


Upstream Margin:
-10 db


Downstream Line Attenuation:
27


Upstream Line Attenuation:
13


Downstream Transmit Power:
22


Upstream Transmit Power:
11


LOS Errors:
0






Cheers!

did you sign up to a FS/128 plan?  cause you'll need to go FS/FS to get better speeds than 4-5 MBps.  128kbps upload doesnt provide enough bandwidth for all the TCP ACKnowledgements that you need to send with your achievable 14Mbps.

That would explain the speedtest anyways.... the torrent speeds will be dependant on how aggressively  orcon provision bandwidth and restrict p2p.

Thanks for your reply, Currently on a max/max plan. I have emailed orcon so will see what they have to say, could be a lengthy time before i see any action going by past threads in the forum with orcon..

Makes me start to miss telecom! (scary)

not according to your modem stats.... that would be the first thing they need to fix.... 164kbps is 128k with a bit extra for the packet overhead.

give Orcon a ring and ask them to make sure your Plan is FS/FS I had to ask for mine to be up graded it cost and extra 10 bucks a month

But don't expect even with an fs/fs sync you'll get much better that what you have been as lately orcon and Telecom have been in discussions over backhaul issues and overseas traffic has been atrociously slow for sometime now

I was on FS/FS with Orcon and the download speed was very slow. Since moving back to Telecom, it has been sweet. Getting download speed 1MB and above. Probably because of the new exchange being only 500m away from my house. This is also happened to my friend near Onehunga and he also moved to Telecom due to slow download speeds. So far no issues since but the only problem about Telecom, they will charge you a fortune if you go over the data limit.

There is some reason that your modem has synced at a slow upstream speed. Also you will notice "DSL Path Mode:FAST" so whatever is causing the upstream problems wont be helped by having interleaving off. If its not fixed by restarting your modem, you could decide whether to start pulling out phones and testing modems, or get interleaving on ASAP (they cant progress a fault with interleaving off).




Time to find a new industry!
