Today-- downloading a file from RS, was at about 10, then went down to 4.8kbps then stopped completely about 5pm. I too cannot even load rapidshare..
Have complained to Orcon several times about our ridiculously low speeds-- youtube, megavideo, even my work stuff in the US is impossible to load, and they said they'd turn on interleaving, it hasnt done a thing... still .89mbps most places in the world.
Sigh. Was really hoping Orcon would be good. Gave them a go and now, :( no go.
