In my personal opinion I think Roelf and Paul should just cut ties with Octotel until they can fix their network. Not saying cancel everyone's account, but just refuse to take on any further customers. This is seriously becoming ridiculous.

I know this isn't a CISP issue and we've all been down this road about whom should talk to who. But in all fairness what else can we as customers do...paying over a grand a month for a service that doesn't work while Octotel happily takes everyone's money for that lackluster service levels. Yes I can cancel and go back to ADSL - oh wait I cant they've taken out the ADSL lines...go wireless...been there done that. What next ....
move.

You want to know what the funny part is. Ever since TTconnect hired that cisco engineer my friend's internet has been progressively getting better and more stable. Line drops are now rare and he can stream twitch, or whatever, any time of day. If TTconnect can do it Octotel really have no excuse but there needs to be a willingness to want to fix it and more importantly a willingness to spend money on improving the customers experience. It speaks volumes about the type of company Octotel are.

Sorry, didn't mention that all I wanted to know was whether there was a connection cost or that was now being waived. I didn't ask about the line speed or cancellation policy.
On Vumatel aerial or Trenched there is always a connection fee charged to the ISP on signup of a customer. If the customer cancels then signs up again we are billed another connection fee.

@PBCool Any idea why international speeds are so low atm? Or should I say inconsistent...

Tested again to Coreix after these screenshots, and it jumps up to 80Mbps then slowly tapers off and settles randomly between 15 and 50Mbps?

So why ask if aerial or trenched if it makes no difference?

I was told no connection fee if I move between ISPs, i.e. I've never used CISP before. Correct?

Correct we absorb the connection fee when you signup, the different between the two is slightly different which is why it's relative.

I am the only user on my 100/100Mbps line currently. This is a damn popular YouTube video with over 600k views in the last 48 hours, pretty sure it should be cached.

It doesn't matter if it's cached or not really, Google manages their own transit for content so if it isn't cached it uses their capacity to deliver it to its local peer. Did you try run a trace to the source at all?
