Xnet, the ADSL2+ upgrades in my hood are finally complete

Finally. Seems the ADSL2+ upgrades in my hood are finally complete. My connection speed has quadrupled now even though Xnet's plans still state they are ADSL1 only LOL.

Connection Speed: 18561 Down. 599 Up (Kbps)

Is that the speed the modem states. as if it is, How does it connect to your PC (as you should get atleast 80% of that speed).

lostdude, Jun 10, 10:08pm
Yes that's what my modem reports but since my xnet plan specifically says "as fast as the physical line will allow based on ADSL1 technology" then I'm betting they're throttling me on their end.

Setup: Modem > Wireless Router > Me [via Ethernet]

"as fast as the physical line will allow based on ADSL1 technology"

which is exactly what slingshot tell me about my connection, yet yours hoses mine down like an old nag on a hot day.

lostdude, Jun 10, 10:29pm
LOL maybe your cabinet is oversaturated since you're in the city :? Mine is new so no doubt it will probably follow suit soon enough.

i'm -this- close to getting fibre optic aye, it's friggin' expensive though.
but still, think of the turbo turkey basting i could do with that speed!

todd + internet hell speed = bot pwning

lostdude, Jun 10, 10:38pm
LOL bot pwning. Yeah get fibre to play single player against bots hahaha :p

0800xford, Jun 10, 10:47pm
damn bots need a good old fashioned pwning!

lostdude, Jun 10, 10:53pm
It's funny how many ppl I've met that claim to be "pros" at CS:S. Then after a good pwning they tell me they've only played against bots... . LOL

0800xford, Jun 10, 10:58pm

0800xford, Jun 10, 11:06pm

but seriously, i'm isp shopping at the moment [sort of]
slingshot vs telecom hmmm hmmmmmmmm!

swivel, Jun 10, 11:06pm
I know a CSS player, Says hes #1. Was bragging a few months ago about being able to kill with a knife (24 - 0). He said he was so fast as he had a -4 ping to the US server.


lostdude, Jun 10, 11:09pm
It's kinda hard choice isn't it. You don't want crap speeds from your existing provider but you don't want to sign up with a fail company lol.

hayster94, Jun 10, 11:10pm
I cant wait for fibre lol. I hate being restricted to only playing against kiwis and aussies because of ping

0800xford, Jun 10, 11:11pm
-4 ?

lostdude, Jun 10, 11:11pm
ROFL, those sort always make me laugh out loud.

0800xford, Jun 10, 11:12pm
i too, am laughing aloud.

lostdude, Jun 10, 11:12pm
I hate when yanks try to play on NZ or Oz servers with their 200ms+ pings. Kills the server rego <. <

0800xford, Jun 10, 11:22pm
i get instabooted often, i laugh, then get back to the bot carnage.

lostdude, Jun 11, 9:59am
