I have found that googleearth cannot download any data at peak use time, i.e all evening when the majority of people want to use the internet so where are all the complaints, does nobody here use this program, I'm guessing most customers that have rang with this problem have been told it is caused by some other thing than what it is, anybody here have any experience ringing orcon about this problem, what did they tell you.

Going by where this is posted I'd say his issue is with Orcon. Actually WoW and Google earth I try not to use at peak time as they're just about unusuable.

Currently looking at other ISP's... Slingshot sounds interesting, Gaming priority, 100gb when you sign up, 3 months free broadband... only down side is the 6gb cap and the $140+ to terminate early :(
