Asked about the previous router, but the answer is in the OP.

No details, but there was some issue with an international link or similar mentioned on BE IRC last night

Definitely worth opening a ticket with Vivaciti. I'm on the partial LLU service and only been on it a month or so and it maxes out just about anytime of the day. I have a Billion 7800 wired which has a throughput problem on current 1.06e firmware. I swapped my router over to the old speedtouch and the throughput problem is solved so dont discount the router.

Having said that my speed was affected by TCP re-transmissions in the router aka pauses in big downloads say 100-200mb in size. Speedtests are unaffected as the download filesize is so small it doesn't seem to stress the router.

I'm beginning to wonder if it isnt a compatibility problem between the Billion and Broadcom Line card/DSLAM. I got set-up details from Surfwise but when I run speedtests it says O-bit telecom so maybe they are changing name. Certainly worth contacting Viva.

Thanks for the input. I have tested the connection quite thoroughly with my old router, a D-Link DSL-2640B, and come up with the same results.

I'm really at a loss, it seems like my line either has a very low profile, or my connection is being throttled.

I didn't think the full LLU had profiles, and you're paying for no throttling, most likely a network problem.

In reply to a post by Banger:

That will be because your service is provided over the O-bit network.

Surfwise is just the name O-bit use for their broadband offerings.
