Meantime there is an update to say what has been done, but no mention of where things are with Kapiti..

At least the guy on the help desk phone line has been as helpful as he can be..

 

Please don't fix what wasn't broken and then leave it broken.. grrrr

Another update from me if anyone is interested:

 

Speed seems to be much better 10/100 but the latency is terrible and the ping is all over the place.  Last night the kids were complaining that they couldn't even play any online games as the lag and ping was so terrible.  Even speed test failed a number of times due to latency problems.

 

As we haven't been advised that the end date has changed and today is the last day of Sept, everything should be sorted by the end of today.

Well it would appear that they still have a few more nodes to do.  So I guess now we have to wait till possibly Saturday to see if everything gets sorted once they complete all areas.

 

I didn't bother testing last night as I thought I may as well wait till they finish the upgrades.  The speed, performance and ping seems to go up and down, so fingers crossed come Saturday it's all fixed and becomes fast, stable and reliable.

Please tell me that this isn't the final result "The physical upgrading of Nodes in Wellington, Kapiti and Christchurch is now complete. Thank you for your patience over the last two months while this work has been completed."
Please tell me that there is going to be some loading balance or something that is going to bring the speeds up to at least over half of the speeds being advertised on the plans?
