Re: Newcastle internet getting really slow

Hey Mano,

I assume you are talking about the password for the ftp test JasonM told us to do ?

Just type the password testspeed when prompted and press enter....It doesnt actually appear in the command window as you type...but it is there

Regards,
Scott

Re: Newcastle internet getting really slow

So whats going on with this and all the other speed issues? According to the forum topics, it looks like ADSL2 speeds are slow all over the newcastle/hunter region !!!!! So its not just the hamilton exchange as discussed at the beginning of this topic. That must be 100's (or 1000's) of users being a...

Re: Newcastle internet getting really slow

Hi all, I just did more speed tests this morning and here are a couple of my results: SpeedTest.Net.jpg ExetelSpeedTest.jpg These results are pretty close to the maximum speed i usually get, so it appears the problem may have been fixed.

Re: Slow speeds

I too have slow speeds and it's almost impossible to browse most websites !!!

I haven't selected the option to be shaped and it's the start of a new month anyway.

So what is the problem this time ??? (as there seems to be some sort of speed issue every month and it's getting RIDICULOUS !!!)

I think everybody needs to realise just how futile it is posting speed test after speed test when clearly the issue is known to Exetel. The issue may be known to Exetel but comments like "Speed seems fine to me" by Exetel Staff makes you think that they are not even looking into it. And the whole p...

I agree with everything you have said but i thought it was obvious that i wasn't complaining about my peak times .... just my off-peak times (just like eveyone else is in these forums). Just thought I'd also add that I haven't had any problems with Exetel for the 3 or so years I'...
