Yes I know, I'm using the 2 wire 2700HG Gateway. Complained so many times, it's a dream to how it was. Although the ping time suits my brain speed ha ha! :lol: Maybe i should see if i can adjust it, on the gateway website.

In the end had to contact Singtel, they reset the adsl settings, but it's still a crappy 10MB connection. 00.48 a.m cannot enter the website gateway for some reason, just a blank page. when i asked singtel support for the password, they just kept making excuse not to give it me, saying they would sort it out. Takes between 2 and 5 seconds to load the forum page.

Well, since yesterday it seems to be stable at this level. So I probably have to say that the 60+ speed was worthy complaining? I seriously do not see any difference in terms of accessing any websites.. Nor I notice serious differences in using this connection for my VPN / webconferences ....

Anyway as I said with this one I have no complain so far ....

So you are not feeling inadequate now 8 Meg, wow I feel :oops: I'll have to have a transplant :lol: although 48 m/s is a bit quick for the ladies. Now meeeee, I have the experience of holding my breath or making a cup of coffeee at over 400m/s. I'll ring Singtel again on Monday.
