Hamilton Orcon 30M ultra fibre here; I got about 170 ~ 190 ms when  I ping "www.google.co.nz" during peak time. The ping was about 30 ms before 7pm.  I got this high ping issue about 3 weeks. Tried call orcon customer support couple of times; all they do is ask me check my PC and restart my modem.

Does anyone know anybody who we could contact to actually speak to other than a helpdesk in Botswanaland?

Advertising un-throttled internet then throttling during off peak. If only this was america, bring on the lawsuits surprised

Like I said, I understand throughput throttling as that is stated in the u limited T&Cs but there is no reason for latency. I doubt it is intentional but some kind of press release or bulletin keeping us updated on the cause and solutions to remedy the problem, and preferably a timeframe would be nice.

It's hard when you have no avenue of escalating a complaint in a timely manner. The helpdesk just brushes you off as a localized issue, and doesn't even acknowledge that they are aware of any issue.

So this is not even peak time and I'm missing bandwidth.



Uhhh

Also 5 days since the last post from someone inside Orcon. This isn't looking good.

I've just noticed this myself tonight and last night from Khandallah VDSL.  Getting no more than 4Mbps tops to various Speedtest targets within NZ, except Callplus targets which give me upwards of 20-30Mbps.  Getting 10Mbps + to Australia.  I have 60Mbps sync speed from my modem.  

Is this some kind of guerrilla tactic from the ISPs not happy with Global Mode??!

Hi Everyone

Apologies if we've been a bit quiet.  

Despite a considerable amount of work to improve matters, we are aware that some customers are still experiencing slowdowns and an increase in latency during peak times.

Rest assured this is not the result of deliberate throttling of traffic, and that we are working hard on addressing the issue.

I can't provide any concrete timeframes just yet.  Once we have a better picture of what is to be done and what the expected timeframes will be, we'll provide an update to that effect.

Again, thank you for your patience, and your continued feedback.  It is much appreciated.

Cheers,

Dan
