Sending Web SMS from Non-Exetel IP

Hi guys, I'm having a bit of trouble trying to send a web SMS from a Non-Exetel IP (Eg a public computer). It asks for a pin- I apply for one with the first 4 digits of my credit card details (normal payment source) but it keeps saying that the details are incorrect. Is it just me with this problem?...

Re: Slow speed or just average?

Dang. Many thanks anyways mate :) The speed is worst during the day (After 12pm). I was consistently getting speeds <2mbps (down to 1.01). I've logged a ticket with Exetel as you suggested to see what they can do about it at their end. So ultimately it sounds like a telstra phone line quality issue?...

Re: Slow speed or just average?

Thanks Corey.

The distance is ~2.6km from the exchange. Is that considered far? Is it possibly due to filters? I've minimised the number of connected devices (just 1 phone) and have a filter on it.

So where to from here?

Cheers mate.

Slow speed or just average?

Hi everyone, I've just connected to Exetel's ADSL2+ plan this month after finally upgrading from 56k. Here's the result of my speedtest according to the members facilities. Your current bandwidth reading is: 2.32 Mbps which means you can download at 297.55 KB/sec. from our servers. Just wondering wh...
