Thanks again Duncan for the updates.  Things are noticeably better for me since around 1500:

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I wont spam the board with the rest of my graphs.

I've also just had a follow-up phone call from the Helpdesk to confirm whether things are back to normal.  First follow-up call for a ticket I have had for a long time.  I've usually had to call back to chase up.

I'm glad it's all sorted now.  Hope it stays that way!

Yes it seems they have fixed the problem.

I have setup small speedtest mirror in USA at: http://speedtest.oxxus.net/
This mirror is not overloaded and it will give you the max speed result.

Please paste your adsl router connection details including "Default gateway" & speed test results.

Currently with:

Default gateway: 60.234.8.201
Preferred DNS server: 60.234.1.1
Alternate DNS server: 60.234.2.2
Downstream rate: 9394 kbps
Upstream rate: 1020 kbps
PPPoE pass-through: Disabled
ADSL Line  
Status: Cable connected
Line mode: ADSL2+
Maximum line rate: 9596 kbps (downstream) / 1364 kbps (upstream)
Noise margin: 6.3 dB (downstream) / 17.2 dB (upstream)
Line attenuation: 30.8 dB (downstream) / 17.4 dB (upstream)
Output power: 20.4 dBm (downstream) / 12.5 dBm (upstream)



on http://speedtest.oxxus.net/  i am getting: 7501kbps download & 405kbps upload even as you can see i have much higher  downstream & upstream rates!

Can anyone beat this ?

Seems like its not good to say "its fixed" coz as soon as we say that - things go bad again!

I am back now to 4200kbps download / 382kbps upload Cry

ADSL (not adsl2) on Xtra was more reliable & much faster then this.

To LA:




To Auckland:




Surely I should be getting a faster speed to LA if I can get those sorts of speeds to Auckland.  Are any other ISP's doing any better with international traffic?

Strange, I'm getting upwards for 5000kbps to LA on speedtest.net since they fixed the problem.

I was getting great downloads last nite on LLU ADSL1 of 4.4Mbits but suddenly at 9.00pm it stopped,  The download manager restarted OK but 5 minutes later it stopped gain but this time I had to reboot the ADSL router.  5 minutes later it stopped again and this time no amout of reboots fixed it.  I can see 4.7Mbit up and 600 kbits down in the ADSL stats page of my routyer but no WAN address from Orcon.

 

Have logged a fault  but a port reset did not fix it.  Guess the LLU honeymoon is over  after a week..  I still have my Orcon Homehub sitting beside me at work ready to pur it in over the weekend when i get some s[are time....





Regards,

hhhmmm still slow for me, soon as it hits 3.30-4pm everything slows down to 200k/sec and normally comes right after 1am. Outside of those times i get around 1600k/sec.
