I've run a few tests tonight, during peak hours, and while not amazing, they weren't bad (compared with my last ISP).

I reported that there's a possible issue, and ran through the tests asked by the helpdesk. They seemed pretty good about it, not denying it but asking for details so they could look into it- better than I used to get with ****.

Apparently my speeds aren't 'bad', but worth following up on, so they put a fault report through and the engineers are collecting my and other people's results to see where the link is having issues.

At the end of the day, it's how they deal with it that counts, and so far it's much more promising than what I'm used to.

I don't like to whinge, I like to get **** fixed, and that's what's happening.

Keep it up guys. Looking forward to some results!

I have no idea what your problem is, BazNZ. You are flying at peak evening time. I am limping at a time when hardly anyone else is online. Orcon >>>Xnet surely.
