Looking for some advice from the better informed ... well ... hopefully!
I'm at the end of a loooong 5km+ line, and have finally settled on a Billion modem that gives me the option to tweak SNR to get the best from my poor bandwidth.
I now sync at ~1300kbps ... yup ... that's the best I can achieve. Stable line though and rarely get a disconnect.
Problem is that lately although I'm syncing at over 1mbps, browsing has been horrendously slow. Worse than dial-up with pictures taking forever to appear and even text based web pages slooooowly appearing line by line.
When I see these problems I'm monitoring bandwidth usage on the modem, and the weird thing is that it's only showing 30-50kbsp usage ... but this is not borne out by the web performance.
Any ideas peeps, I'm getting a bit hacked off with this ....
