Slow internet across the pacific??


Well-Known Member
A Southern Cross fibre fault outside of San Jose, California is to blame for slow speeds across the pacific.

The slowdown began shortly after 7PM according to Internode, with customers from Telstra, Optus and iiNet among others all confirming slow speeds with significant packet loss. The Internet Traffic Report, the internet equivalent of a weather bureau, is not currently showing any abnormal activity.

No ETA is currently available for a fix to the problem.

To be honest I didn't feel anything. I use Optus. How did everyone else find this?
PS. Link was repaired at 2 AM.
Well, this problem is supposed to be fixed, yet I can't get passed that 25k barrier. I usually get average of 300k.

PS. I'm talking bytes not bits.
I got Iprimus that go though telstra and they are the worst ISP in Melbourne,They are slow and have the worst support.
