I'm still having a pretty rough time. Using a single TCP connection, no matter what port/host - I get between 0 and 15k. On average somewhere about 4k/s. Over time the connections will drop - making something which is annoying, far worse. Obviously the solution is just to spam a whole load of threads.
However, that only really helps for 'recreational' activities. Trying to actually get any work done using this gold account is simply madness. Checking out repos at 4k/s is not very exciting; At least checking it out remotely and making a tarball works :/
Another fun thing is that whatever filtering/shaping software is being used upstream is not releasing/timing out sockets correctly, after 2-3 days I am required to drop the connection for a while, otherwise only about 1/40th of attempts to connect to a host will reach it (TCP/UDP, ICMP seems fine) - this is not an issue on my side.
My torrents have started to come alive again got almost a 800mb downloaded last night. I used to be able to pull up to 1.5/2gb+ overnight so still not what it used to be. Web downloads and news servers running at 100%.
Would like to report that my line is running stably at full speed - OpenWebs support guys rock ^_^
Well 340kb's - 380kb's which I think is decent on a 4mb line.
A nice example - syncing mailboxes (IMAP, TLS), something that ordinarily is not shaped, most of the time it'll just max out at ~100. However for the last few days, since this cropped up :
That said, if it's an issue that has been confirmed upstream, then I guess it's just a matter of waiting it out. Hopefully I can survive on what's left of this old 2gb saix account

Ok, a bit of a WTF...
Get home to find that the account has not been connecting since this morning?
Sent an email although now have to wait for feedback. Do not have any other ADSL account either >.<
This is getting a bit ridiculous now. Sent MrBEEP a message earlier this week, got no response.
Logged a call earlier this week as well about the current account being super slow.
Now today this? Hope we get some feedback now otherwise chances are we will be jumping ship as the parents need internet and do not like the issues we have been having recently.
EDIT: Alright, there we go. Got a response from the email which was sent and internet is working again. There is actually service this time and its fast, not sure what happened with MrBEEP or when we called in to the helpdesk?

384K - 4MB upgrade with Telkom = Instant
If only Telkom were that fast with everything
Latest update: There should already be a bit of an improvement, with things hopefully easing out this afternoon and evening.
If your problem persists past tonight, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will begin a personal investigation on your setup.
Yeah, it looks a bit better - but still a lot of timeouts and glacial performance on mail/svn/git/ssh/steam (something broken with shaping and ssl?). There's some work on the exchange closest to here, so I'll wait on that before I get in contact, on the off chance
Is anyone else experiencing high latencies on IS today?
There is currently a Telkom IPC fault causing issues on some of our backbones.
Engineers are attending to get it resolved for the crazy download weekend ahead. I myself have around 20GB's I need downloaded before tomorrow afternoon, so trust me, this is getting TOP priority!
Thats good news MrBeeb, hope they sort it out quickly as my latency has gone up even more since I last posted. Hoping to play some BF3 tonight.
