Just so you'll don't think I'm completely negative.

Snap performance has been consistently average the last 2 weeks. Average being youtube does not cache at peak times and download speeds are o.k. for my needs.

I did notice on two occasions a 1.1MB/s download speed hit... off peak.. very possibly from a NZ proxy cache but.. it was refreshing to see.

im finding it hit and miss, Friday was fine 6.30 pm i was downloading a torrent at 300 downloading a file at 100 and surfing the net , but usually i can download torrents at 100 at peak time and watch youtube without caching most nights if it dosent i reset my modem
2-3 times and it works again, but i was with slingshot and i stll shudder thinking what it was like with them

Common sense is not as common as you think.

I can pretty much never watch youtube without buffering before 11pm.
The depressing thing is it's gradually getting worse, get the the odd decent day here and there but the trend is definitely downwards.
Offpeak still fine for the most part.

up and down like a yoyo for me - from occasionally fast(ish) to painful/unusable
