Well it had to be made some time, an ISP rant thread.

Id like to say to NTL, thanks for the disconnections every 27.5 seconds and the crappy download and upload speeds I seem to be forever getting and the stupid 1GB a year cap...

Well OK, my ISP isnt THAT bad, its got 99% uptime and very rarely drops in speed, and there is no cap 8) But it does have its moments, especially when the DNS servers pack in!


Your turn to rant now 8)

I'm currently with Xtra (Telecom). They have recently changed all the plans so you get as 'fast as your line can go' so far on my computer i have only connected up to 1.2mbs, where beforehand i could get at least 2+mbs. It is also unlimited now, but they restrict certain things (p2p). ugh

Warning: Rant :P

My ISP isn't too bad, its just that because of our stupid government, it has to use Telstra for its infrastructure. And Telstra *sucks*. They cap DSL at 1.5Mbit for most people (as in, they don't offer any of the nice 4Mbit/5Mbit/8Mbit plans), have bad download limits, questionable service, and charge a lot for it. I bet they've stung so many people with their $29.95/month DSL plan with 200MB of downloads, with a 24 month contract. LOL. Even Rupert Murdoch thinks our internet connections suck.

mines actually good. I get 9Mb/s(actual) down, and the first 10megs of any transfer I get 14Mb/s. One thing I hate though, the upload speeds. I get 512k upload(theoretical, but close to actual) and they have no plans to up this.

You get 14Mbps for the first 10MB (Im assuming it drops throughout the downloading of the 10MB) because any connection "bursts" when it first starts. I can get 1500KB/s download speed on my 4Mbps connection but it slowly drops down to 480KB/s again which is my normal speed.
