Re: Changing DSL supplier in Tasmania...

Hi all

Still slow here in Hobart too. I changed the MTU to 1390, and that makes it usable, but not fast.

I am transferring to Internode now.

Cheerio,

Re: Changing DSL supplier in Tasmania...

Hi all

My service is still degraded too. If it isn't fixed by this evening then I'm changing away.

Last chance, otherwise I'm changing away after many years as a dedicated and happy customer.

Regards,

Re: Changing DSL supplier in Tasmania...

Just another bump to say that this issue is still not fixed. I did a speed test, and as you can see, getting 10-20 kbps or so.

This is the single worst experience in my 7 years with Exetel...

Edit, ran another and got 60 kbps.

Re: Changing DSL supplier in Tasmania...

Confirming that I am also still experiencing the issues too.

Definitely NOT fixed... I cant even load speedtest to demonstrate the speeds I'm experiencing.

It's been 3 days now. This is the worst experience I have had in 7 years with Exetel...

Re: Slow as P2P

Hi Dazzled The macmini is a 1.8 Ghz intel dual core. But it can't run Lion, so must be an X86 only. Deluge has compiled binaries for only the latest OSX (this was a month ago I tried, but trust me, I'm an old Linux user... if the software could have been installed it WOULD have been!). I have toyed ...

Re: Slow as P2P

I just moved house, and I quietly hoped my troubles would go away. My situation is this: 1/ I use torrents for many things, and have done for years. 2/ I moved to a telstra wholesale ADSL2 connection a couple of years ago and it has been great 3/ until around 4 months ago, when it slowed down a huge...

Re: Slow as P2P

Well. I'm going to consider changing the OS on my media-centre. Or my ISP...

I cannot install Deluge on my media-centre. I tried the .app and also macports. Both failed. (One crashes, the other fails to compile libraster-torrent).

Oh well.

On one computer I installed deluge and it instantly hit 1.2 mbps on the ubuntu torrent... So, it is clear that it is a torrent p...

Re: Slow as P2P

Just to update on my status again. I'm on a telstra wholesale connection. I'm on OSX, using the latest uTorrent, and also have tried Tramsmission. I've enabled peer exchange, and have around 200 connections available. From the screenshot above it seems I am missing local peers? As per the fellow abo...

Re: Slow as P2P

Hi Dazzled. I am on OSX. I tried utorrent and transmission. Both experienced similar speeds. My router settings didn't change. My torrent settings I messed with, changing max n peers per torrent and globally. Made it large (>100) and small (<20) and no great change. I have always limited my upload s...

Re: iPhone Personal Hotspot Not Available

Hi thanks for your prompt response. Should I need to set up my APN? Or will it sort itself out? Also, is it normal for it to take a little while getting set up? I enabled it in the user facilities and received the SMS confirming this. But I can't enable it yet... I just wait a bit, right? Thanks aga...

iPhone Personal Hotspot Not Available

Hi there I am on plan M15 and was just activated today. My phone works, I receive texts/calls. I can browse the internet. All is good except for WiFi Hotspot, internet sharing. I called up about this before I signed up and was assured that it was supported now. So, what is the procedure for enabling...
