Yep. Thats from the modem itself? That's a pretty crap sync rate. Have you tried an isolation test? (Remove all the phones/plug the modem straight into the primary jack, etc)

In this case, the tech might be telling the truth!

You'll probably only ever be able to get  ~160KB/s downloads on your line, at that sync rate.

Im happy to accept the "sync rate"  thats the cost for living in the middle of no where as i do
its the average 4.8kb download rate with 27 seeds that fluctuates to 160kbs but after 5 drops to 2-7 during the whole evening thats the problem

No, he means the stats that your modem is connecting at.

If you browse to your modem, which is usually http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 and then login.

Then look at the connection stats and it'll tell you the speed you're connected at.

Note: Your modem/router could have a different address. It's whatever your default gateway is.

this was  a few minutes ago its like watching paint dry no wonder people go postal

will do  a screen shot tomorrow and start a process  discriminating the information you chaps have given whilst getting a degree computer science !! Is there not a $9.95 piece of shareware that fixes all my problems?

5 to 10kBps is normal for the AYCE plan. It doesnt matter what you are doing, they prioritise surfing, voip, gaming and email.
EVERYTHING else including VNC, RDP, telnet, SSH and no matter what it is becomes deprioritised. Not throttled. In the evenings it is almost impossible for me to RDP into a server over in sydney at the moment.
And it doesnt matter what port you use, its deep packet inspection so there is almost no way to get around it. I am just waiting for the torrents to start speaking http instead of torrent language over port 80 and that should confuse things for them.

I noticed last week they may have just upped the bandwidth and youtube is performing a bit better.


Also you shouldnt expect any more than 50kB/s at almost any time of the day on the ayce plan.

This is my usage today. You can see where the cache kicked in at the end of the day when the next (popular) torrent started up.



These are my speedtest.slingshot.co.nz results

Download Speed: 10051 kbps (1256.4 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 675 kbps (84.4 KB/sec transfer rate)
Latency: 15 ms
Jitter: 0 ms
Packet Loss: 0 %

So even with a better sync speed (than you) all the way up to slingshots office, my connection still performs the same as yours.

I have a server sitting on a decent network, running SSH on port 443.

If someone on Slingshot that knows how to tunnel stuff through SSH would like to contact me to see if port 443 SSH is allowed through at unthrottled speeds, feel free to message me.

Regardless if it works or not, it'll only be a test!

It is not allowed thru at decent speeds, sometimes even shell stuff over ssh is impossible, like a ls that has about 1000 files will make the connection get closed by them.

Even on 443?

What about ICMP tunnels.

Rage against DPI!

Ok you guys have now lost me completely LOL

To summarize

Is there a way to beat the slingshot system (that would be the the bend over and take it and dont complain you are a kiwi system) that does not require a degree in computer science and a super computer ?

If there is is there a instruction sheet to apply it? I can follow GOOD instructions

Or 

is there somebody on the slingshot as much as you can eat plan that has applied "fixes" that allows them to avoid remove etc the throttling shaping what ever you call it?

There's not, no.  The ideas we're suggesting are rather complex and probably are expected by Slingshot's device/filter systems anyway.

This is simply a case of you get what you pay for.  All You Can Eat*!
