    of late it appears that my conncetion has dropped in speed dramatically.

    This is my latest test from ihugs website

    This test will estimate the download speed of your internet connection. The
    test works by sending a file to your computers browser and timing how long
    it takes to download. Your connection speed is calculated by dividing the
    file size by the download time. Results of your speed test:

    56 Kbps - dial up
    128 Kbps - ADSL
    Your Connection
    256 Kbps - Wireless
    1000 Kbps - Ultra
    2000 Kbps - Wireless

    Speed test details:

    Test file size: 512 KiloBytes
    Download time: 28.157 seconds
    Estimated speed: 147 Kilobits/sec (18 KiloBytes/sec)



    anyone else with Ultra (prefer DBS service) want to do this test and see
    what your getting.



    Talked to Ihug, they say several things.



    1. my connection is not limited

    2. Ultra only works at high speed in multiple downloads - single downloads
    will be slow.

    It's not a sun spot problem ? or the alignment of the New Zealand to the
    sun ? I'm assuming that it's happened suddenly..

    wasn't there an issue with satnet where it would suck if you got too
    high of a signal?

    yep. I don't know what the 78% is a percentage of. In the old drivers it
    gave a AEG value. Mine was 199. I heard problems started at 210+

    It is becoming apparent that they are really trying to get as many people as
    possible off Ultra. If only Jetstream were available here.................

    No ADSL here.. even if there was, I am about 10kms from the local exchange.
    I am out of luck.
    $70per month for 3gb data cap at 20k/sec is not really a good deal. But I do
    not have any other options.

    yep. I feel for ya. I opted for 2G cap cause I have friends in town and
    they download the big files for me now. Hassle though.
