dsl problem

Hey Guys,

Did anyone else experience the problem earlier today. I got dropped from
my isp and couldn't authenticate again. Adsl Helpdesk said something had
gone down and they were trying to fix it.

Was just wondering :)

Cheers

Jithen

This is an interesting risk. It means that nobody without a monitoring package
of their own can control their jetstream usage. Will telecom give refunds for
unintended overuse during this period?

Is the phonecall as you get to the limit working?

Its worth noting as well that firewalls have two component. Ingress and
egress filtering.

Out-bounding filtering is as important, maybe more so in a NAT enviroment.

BTW: 'unix mailing list' <adsl <at> lists.unixathome.org>

"Unix" mailing list??

I often find not clicking on the links for large file downloads is a good
way to curb excess usage - pretty straightforward.

Refunds for unintended usage? You mean if you were walking to the kitchen,
slipped, somehow fell on to the pc, accidentially turned on a p2p sharing
application with all your media shared and left it going?

This list is rife with risks faced by a Jetstream user. While the risk is
small, the cost is astronomical

At 2Mbit (a very conservative speed) and 20c/MB, you are looking at $3,500 per
day, or $100k per month.

Telecom's solution so far has been "watch the usage page" (every 10 minutes
($25), I guess).

I have no idea. I guess ask your ISP is the best answer (and they will ring
up the right people and ask) :-)

Jetstart speed.

Hi I am in Palmerston North and am finding jetstart international
speed to be abysmal.  Is anyone else finding the same.??

Cheers for now

Re: Jetstart speed.

This has been mentioned in the archives.
Its a known problem, lets face it we are at the end of a link that just
isn't big enough!
Even Jetstream can be slow on international connections.

RE: Jetstart speed.

What exactly is slow ? .. Im on Jetstart, in Palmerston North and I
download at the full rate, with no problems.

Browsing speed as well is very fast, my pings are also very good.

Re: Jetstart speed.

But surely the HUGE southern cross cable should allow 16 k/sec downloads...

but alas.... lately its been crap... 5 k/sec international a lot of the
time... thats dial up speed.
