Re: Extremely Slow speed 2Mbps~7Mbps on Cable (supposed to be 100Mbps)

Here I come again!!!

 

It's been good for a few months.

 

The congestion issue started to re-surface again yesterday, I noticed very slow speed (high latency) when browsing the web.

 

Testing speed using ozpseedtest and I was told it was ONLY 3Mbps...

 

Now I just did a optus speed test using a desktop (1Gbps == 1000Mbps ethernet connection to RT-AC68u router + bridged Netgear CG3000v2), below is what I saw!

Then I did another on a Linux box (TCP fine tuned as NAS and VPN server), no better

 

terry@n54l:~/Downloads/speedtest-cli$ ./speedtest_cli.py

Retrieving speedtest.net server list...

So I am getting worse than 1/10 of 100Mbps right now, can someone from Optus tell me what is going on?

 

Really annoying.

Can't believe how slow it is, the bandwidth and latency starts to affect normal web browsing, let alone other stuff which requires more bandwidth and lower latency...

Re: Extremely Slow speed 2Mbps~7Mbps on Cable (supposed to be 100Mbps)

Looks like I am not alone.

 

I am in Carlingford exchage territory, not sure where you guys are located.

 

Just did another speed test, my jaw almost dropped, haven't seen so poor bandwidth for a few months...

 

@freeman1stcn I didn't get any compensation last time, just a few calls...

Any Optus people can give me an explanation on the extremely slow speed recently?

Australian telco complaints hit nine-year low.

 

But Optus, TPG and iiNet buck the trend. From iTnews website.

Optus are going compensate your customers for the slow speed?
