Browsing takes ages for pages to load and some will even time out. Feels like i'm back on dial up at times (i'm currently downloading a file at 7.6kbps so I guess it's slightly better than dial up )
US sites seem to be worse than AUS sites but all in all both are slower. According to the Exetel speed test
Keep in mind i'm on ADSL2 and 140 metres from the exchange.Your current bandwidth reading is:
which means you can download at 159.71 KB/sec. from our servers.

That is with no other network activity/downloads etc. Yay for having uploads almost 4 times the speed of my downloads. I mean this is a joke. What gives exetel?
EDIT: Speed test after 12pm
64X faster during peak time !!!!.
