What is wrong with Telstra Velocity Speed

Just changed from ADSL2 with Internode to Telstra Velocity Fiber. Now my speed test is only 2.6Mbps. it's been like that for 2 days, at evening time. What a joke really. And they cut the copper wire, so I'm stuck with telstra velocity, can't even get the ADSL2 anymore. Morning speed was good can get 32Mbps, on evening when you need to use it, everything just keep buffering.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Have you spoken to the velocity tech support team at all? It looks like congestion.

Re: What is wrong with Telstra Velocity Speed

I don't really know if talk to velocity tech support will make any difference, as after 11pm, the speed just magically back to 30Mbps.

Thanks anyway

Re: What is wrong with Telstra Velocity Speed

Well, shall I put it this way. If you don't talk to the Velocity team, you can't expect any improvement in the situation.
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Re: What is wrong with Telstra Velocity Speed

Talked to velocity team, and again same answer congestion, they can't do anything about it, wait for the upgrade which they don't know when will start. And with they cut the copper wire to the premises make no other provider can service only Telstra. During joining process by the phone they promised during peak time will expect at least 18Mbps, but from my experience during peak time, even to browse internet is so difficult, and speed sometimes down to 2Mbps.
