i'd hate to see what people are going to post in a few years time once we start getting congestion on the UFB network.

at the end of the day you are only paying for 2.5M of throughput. anything over that is bonus

Not related, this issue has nothing to do with network congestion.

I would be willing to guess it was an issue between bitstream 2 vs 2a profiles on Chorus.
The bs2a 100/20 has a layer 2 speed of 110/22 so that all things being equal you "should" get a layer 3 speed of just a smidgen over 100/20.

However there are lots of different aspects that cancan impact overall speeds. The most likely of that is end computer speed and ensuring you are over a wired connection.

The other thing that can impact speed is the profile you are set to by your isp. If they are not in sync between lfc and isp you can get a fair amount of packet loss on the access network.

BarTender: I would be willing to guess it was an issue between bitstream 2 vs 2a profiles on Chorus.
The bs2a 100/20 has a layer 2 speed of 117/22 so that all things being equal you "should" get a layer 3 speed of just a smidgen over 100/20.

Now I am confused with the mention of 117/22. The Chorus guide referenced earlier states:
>>>
3.6.2 Bandwidth overhead for Low Priority to compensate for higher protocol encapsulation overheads. The size of the overhead is calculated as follows:
(a) 10% overhead in Low Priority downstream for bandwidths <200 Mbps, e.g. 33 Mbps for a 30 Mbps headline bandwidth;
(b) 8.5% overhead in Low Priority downstream for bandwidths ≥ 200 Mbps e.g. 217 Mbps for a 200 Mbps headline bandwidth;
<<<
In the table 110 Mbps down is stated. Overheads to get to Speedtest numbers from Layer 2 rates usually result in the ratio around 100/93. The new Accelerate plans are intended to allow the ISPs to deliver 100 Mbps as perceived by the users (even if they are getting more at Layer 2).

Is the 117 wrong or are there further updates to these plans?

Yes... I'm wrong.. been staring at the screen too long. As per the Chorus BS2A table on page from the I'm wrong link. 

100/20 = 110/22
100/100 = 110/115
200/20 = 217/22
200/200 = 217/230

I am having a similar problem with gigabit internet in Dunedin.  I have a snap gigatown connection.

I know that many of you would drool at getting over 200mbps but I'm a bit annoyed that I'm not getting what I paid for.



I had a problem initially where I couldn't get over 70Mbps down (yes seventy, no missing zeros here).  To snap's credit the helpdesk came to the party and that was fixed.

Since that time I still havent been able to get over 700Mbps.  I have rung snap and been told that they have logged into my fritzbox and seen at some point that I have hit 800Mbps and that is perfectly fine.  I was told if I wanted to get more than this then I would have to pay $199 for my fritzbox to be upgraded.

I originally was an adsl customer, and have been for over 2 years - our 24 month contract expired and now I am on an open contract.  They told me I was not allowed to sign up for another 2 year term and receive another fritzbox. 

Im not entirely happy with having to pay $199 to get a better service - does anyone have any ideas why my current fritzbox, the 7340 shouldn't be able to obtain faster speeds?  Should I have to pay for an upgrade?

Because it completely maxs out the CPU in the 7340. Yes, pay for the upgrade.

I'm curious about 2 things:

1) What are you doing that 630 Mbps is constraining?
2) Does a gigatown connection cost more per month than a non-gigatown connection?

For those lucky enough to live in Dunedin, Gigatown connections are actually cheaper than what we have to pay.  Lightwave 200 Ultra Unlimited (200/200) is $179 per month.  Gigatown is only $99.

even the best routers out there will never manager to get close to what you are "paying for" as you put it

its all about WAN to LAN throughput
http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/tools/charts/router/view

even the most expensive devices out there struggle with 1Gbps connections

you wpuld probably need to build your own PFsense device (PC router) to get close to 1Gbps

Worth considering if these graphs include PPPoE overhead in them too.
