Having asked around a lot (and received some very helpful off-list
replies, thanks), so far every Quicksilver customer I've spoken to is
getting sub-500kbit/s, all over the country... yet the Xtra, Ihug, WxC,
and Orcon guys all are getting pretty close to the expected speeds.
So it's almost certainly some Quicksilver-Telecom link... now if only
they'd just admit it rather than spinning strange tales about how it's
_definitely_ affecting everyone and that I must be deluded, I wouldn't
be so grumpy.
Oh well, at least it leaves options (like changing providers), but
hopefully they'll get the message and sort it out soon.
It's probably worth noting that this isn't just international traffic...
speed tests to both the orcon-hosted nzdsl test and Quicksilvers own
speedtest page are giving consistently shoddy results.
