So it has come to my attention recently that my 200/20 has either deteriorated or something else is at play, done the usual isolation tests of devices and what not on the fritz and results are the same..
When I first got UFB installed I was bouncing 200/20 to pretty much all local servers no problem, however at this current state something feels abit off..

Speed tests on different servers in Auckland:
at around 11:30pm on a sunday night

Woosh Wireless:


Vodafone(failed to finish times out on upload):


Spark:


CallPlus:


WolrdNet


Is this normal behavior for UBF in Auckland? or maybe just a snap/2degree thing?
If so i really wished i didnt get locked into a 2 years contract as I would of taken my chances with Spark these days as several friends seems to be getting really good connections with them...

On top of that been playing some sames with servers in Tokyo and even with a 130 ping it seems to get occasional stutters probably packet loss, but thats another story.

It could be a Snap issue.

Been playing with friends on FF14, they kept disconnecting on their Snap Fiber connection, while I'm perfectly fine on my Spark VDSL connection.

Damn just tried watching some Twitch streams, stutters anything thats above medium quality, I did have this problem early on when i first got UBF back when it was SNAP but they managed to fix it after afew phone calls. But after a few calls today, they said everything was fine on their end and chorus....

You using WiFi? I am on 200/200 and can get it fine:

Twitch streams fine on any quality with me. The problem is likely on your end and also it is UFB and not UBF.

Unless you have AC in your living room, and AC devices, that does rock. I got linespeed when I was on 200/20 via AC, which is about 4 times faster then the 200. I'll qualify that by saying I'm unsure of the max real world speed the 867 connect rate I have would do.

Oh don't get me wrong I'm aware of wifi AC and that fritz supports it i have a device that can reach 100Mbps using it, I just much prefer ethernet for a solid stable consistent connection, specially for gaming.
The fact that I cant watch and Twitch streams on High/Source clearly says something up, I've had this issue when I first signed up, they managed to fix it after some calls later, hell I could even watch streams on vdsl fine...

This is not normal for UFB. My customers get full line speed every time on speedtest (assuming their home network and computer is good, of course).
