zCelicaDude: I've been on telecom now for nearly 2 months... its the best internet experience ive ever had... I left orcon after I made several complaints about speed to there helpdesk, and they always blamed 1) my phone line conditions, 2) my router.
Even though I was using a orcon supplied home hub, and I have a splitter installed in the demarc box with a cat6 cable running directly to the router...
with telecom my internet is just always fast, I cant notice any slow downs in the "busy periods like orcon"... and youtube can stream HD videos without buffering.. go figure
Check page 1 at the bottom for my comparrision bewtween telecom and orcon
Tivo upgrades to operate with the new OzTivo EPG, support and service. Over 300 performed here so far. See: www.hillcrest.net.nz
Spong: I'm on UBS Orcon, cabinetised, with line speeds of around 15 Mb/s down /0.9Mb/s up, and great down/up speeds, but over the last month or so, I've had spectacularly poor Youtube performance also, with constant buffering of even SD clips. I thought it maybe a global problem until I checked a few Telecom users and theirs was fine. I headed here to see if this was a common Orcon problem, and sure enough it is. Never thought I'd go back to Telecom, but looks like another customer lost.
Orcon, used to monitor this forum, but don't seem interested these days.
Sounddude: Hi Guys
Just to let you know that I have been reading the forums and noting the problems thats are being experienced, and we are working hard to look into it. Youtube is one of the sites we want to run perfectly for you.
Have some projects on the go which should help. Will let you know more soon :)
