Slow speed on ADSL2+ to any Apple Servers

Hello,

 

Is there issues again with Telstra having very slow connections to Apple ???

 

I am getting less then 100K/sec, yet anything else I get the full speed

 

Is there issues again like last year http://www.smh.com.au/digital-life/digital-life-news/telstra-users-report-slow-speeds-on-apple-devic...

 

Thanks

Josh

Re: Slow speed on ADSL2+ to any Apple Servers

I am having the same slow speeds connecting to Apple servers. I can't update apps through iTunes, or listem to Apple Music. I am connected through ADSL1.

If I use the 4g mobile network through my iPhone 6 download speeds are normal.

 

Has Telstra acknowledged that there is an issue?

 

Thanks

Cool, looks like there could be some issue with the Telstra DNS again,

 

when I look up www.apple.com with the Telstra DNS, I get:

;www.apple.com. IN A

When I query the DNS from google, I get:

Will try and repoint the DNS and see what happens

I have changed the DNS server to use the root-dns and not the telstra DNS servers and I am all ok now.

 

Not sure if that was what fixed it for me, or if Telstra have made changes today in their network.....
