Sounddude:
tunafish: When telecom built their DSL network it was low grade so they didn't loose customers from their frame, ISDN and ATM networks, so I guess we are left with this legacy, a load of junk.


Thats why we built our own LLU network :)


Sadly only covering people within ~2km of large exchanges in Auckland (and the Wellington central exchange) though!

I fix stuff!

we would love to go into cabinets, if they charged market rates for backhaul and space.

Sounddude: Just heard from Telecom they are putting in a work around this afternoon. So it should be better tonight.

Will let you guys know when I hear more.



I hope this was not the fix you had in mind as now mine is well, broken!

Incidently our handover is also from GLF, and as far as I could tell , my connection from TBY-GLF was fine before.

speedtest

Clear congestion on the telecom wholesale network now, I normally get 8 to 11ms on the 3rd hop.

Tracing route to trademe.co.nz [202.162.73.2]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

  1     1 ms     1 ms    <1 ms  Router [192.168.0.254]
  2     2 ms     1 ms     1 ms  192.168.1.254
  3   119 ms   116 ms   113 ms  lns2.alb.maxnet.net.nz [123.100.64.12]

Whoever you talked to at Telecom needs to be castrated.

Would congestion at TBY affect anything north of it directly? I'm closest to the RDB/BF exchange/cabinet north from there, and the connection has been notably better 5-7pm last couple of days vs earlier weeks, but seems like it's still heavily congested around 8-11pm.


1    <1 ms    <1 ms    <1 ms  192.168.1.1
2   119 ms   114 ms   116 ms  lo1-ubs.erx1.nct.orcon.net.nz [60.234.8.199]

The second hop there was around 50ms about an hour ago, 15-20ms offpeak.

Maybe 2 years ago, but now I doubt it. 

Orcon aren't currently unbundling the large exchanges in other cities/towns like Hamilton, Christchurch and Wellington.

So it's unlikely the ROI stacks up with FTTH looming within 10 years and all the uncertainly around in the industry.

I fix stuff!

haven't been reading the papers? :P

We signed a joint deal with Compass/Callplus to share unbundled exchanges. It will  open up the possiblity of unbundling more.

Honestly, the performance of Orcon is getting worse and worse during peak periods. I wanted to do a Speedtest to show you my speeds....but the website wont even load.

What is going on? Instead of giving people more data caps, why not actually buy more bandwidth?

I used to laugh at my old man for choosing crappy old telecom...now he's the smug one on his lightning speeds while I can barely even load international websites.

Normally my connection is crap between 4 to 11ish, but today at 5:45 its still pretty reasonable, 250-350 kb/sec compared to 5-20 kb/sec during peak. Get 1500+ kb/sec offpeak of course, but dont expect those speeds during peak.
