I never thought I'd say this but I am seriously unhappy with Snap. 

Starting Friday night my Net has been largely unusable. On Saturday, NZ traffic came back but international was crawling. This was the best speed I got all day yesterday. 



Snap responded on Twitter to say, "we are experiencing some latency issues - techs are investigating at the moment". 

Today is worse:



Two others also on Snap posted their results this afternoon:





There is currently a network status message up on the Snap site: http://www.snap.net.nz/support/network-status/62/3_12-@-2100-high-latency-and-low-throughput.html

Is this latency related to TelstraClear's uncapped weekend? Seems awfully coincidental. Whatever the reason, losing an entire weekend because international traffic is borked makes for at least one very unhappy customer.

Yup, on Snap and everything is running ridiculously slow... They use Telstra as their main upstream provider IIRC. Youtube is unusable even on 360p.
Serious BS that other ISP's have to suffer for Telstra's marketing stunt.

What
The
****

I don't mind if Telstra screw over speeds of their entire customer base with this free weekend, but this is just stupid.

Folks, I got some information Snap today about this... Basically (translating the info): there is a confirmed fault with Reach and that its being worked on. This is the causing issues for some customers and the increase in latency is impacting throughput on single TCP connections. In other words speed tests will be giving these shocking results but multiple streams should be able to get full speed as normal.

Snap is planning another free weekend at some stage very soon, and like the previous ones they don't expect the network to be impacted.

Reach problem? Is this being caused by the Telstra free weekend congesting the Reach ports?

I'd be interested to see a traceroute to 7206-gi-0-2.w-link.net to compare the path.

Is there a common Reach router in there that isn't dealing with the flood of traffic Telstra is throwing at it?

Looks like the same box (or something) and I'm getting averaged 8% packet loss on that link.

So clearly there is a common path in there.

I have also noticed a slower throughput lately, even with 10 multiple streams I cannot reach my full speed any more.
Doing some tests I also noticed that the last Telstraclear hop before Reach has a higher ping than usual...

didnt notice any major problems but after asking my son about his WoW ping he said it has gone from 120 to 240 ping on the Australian server and i can only use You Tube on 1 pc instead of 3 all at once. so something is slightly off.




Common sense is not as common as you think.
