    Why am I experiencing 1/4 of my download speed?

    I consistently used to get 4Mbps, now I'm only getting 1Mbps for the last week. ISP say it either internal problem with me or I can log a fault with chorus.

    How do you get down to 4Mbps in the first place?

    Log a fault with chorus then, if you don't think it can be a problem at your end.

    They said that they fixed the problem, yet I'm still experiencing the same reduction in speed since last Wednesday. No disconnections so far at least.
    I did send them a follow up email, but really, what is for this reduction in speed? Did my ISP just decide to chop my speed? It make no sense.

    What was the "problem"? Assuming you're on copper, try disconnecting phones and everything else from the phone line. Check what speed the router is seeing, which should be in the router console @ something like 192.168.1.1 whatever your gateway is

    umm, they defined "fixed" as, we fixed the problem, the problem being no problem on our end.
    Technician coming on Thursday. Disconnecting like crazy tonight. Sucks when I need internet for work.

    You should tell us what type of connection it is then we can provide better guidance.

    holly shit, so they apparently replaced some line outside (I wasn't home), and now I'm getting 10.4Mbps and most importantly no more disconnections. 10.4Mbps is a lot coming from a life time of 2-4Mbps over the years.

    Nice work, a good boost too.

    I stayed with someone that didn't have fiber to their property, not even VDSL as an option I don't think. Living the dream with 10Mb on a good day.

    Yeah a lot of people really dont realise that their copper connections are degraded.

    When I had VDSL put into my old house it was 130Mbps / 55Mbps sync rate, with a connect rate of 70/30 (the limit of the VDSL card in the cabinet). One day Chorus techs was digging outside and it dropped my speed to about 10/2 and a lot of disconnections. I complained about it and got a text saying it was "Fixed", nothing changed. Had them check again, got a second text saying it was "Fixed"...the disconnections stopped but still only getting about 30/2 which most people wouldnt notice. I escalated it and it became a managed case, guy came out to see me and did some testing between the cabinet and the pole outside (where I said they had been digging)...he re-terminated at the pole and boom, full speed again.

    Glad most of its going to FTTH these days which generally means it either works or it doesn't, much better consistency in service.

    I have a good FTTN connection (we get pretty much full speed even at peak) but it's not gigabit eh
