Oriphix: Woot POSITIVE NEWS GUYS!!!
From Orcon lvl 2 Engineer

"Following up on your complaint regarding international speed issues.

We’re rolling out some changes this week (next couple of days) which should resolve international transit issues.

I will keep you posted when these have been completed."

Fingers crossed :)



do you think i should put in a complaint to get my neighborhood fixed or did the engineer sound like its a general fix that should solve everyones speeds ?

(I'm on the 30/10 UFB plan). Wonder what happened? Before December international speeds were poor but there were changes made in Dec and these changes made huge differences to int speeds.

Now they are crap again. Weird.

@dspaceman. No need to complain as changes will affect all - hopefully for the better!

Lagging so badly in WoW at the moment. I've been sick the last few days so i'm sure it's probably been like that the last few days since the international went to !@$%.

I paid for an extra latency reducing service to see if it would help. It didn't help much.

Yeah in the past when Orcon have had problems I've used lowerping to get around the ms but then it started being fine without it. It's fine right now, but wasn't when I posted.

So Orcon, When are you going to come clean and admit the International fault you've been having with your MUX's in AKL/SYD/LA since the middle of Jan?




Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

Ive brought like 10 games in the Xbox games on demand sale so far over the last week... still waiting for 6 of them to finish download. Could have downloaded them all 100x over on PC, just not on Xbox.
