    As per the thread title, is anyone experiencing packet loss and poor speeds during the evenings (typically, between 5PM-12AM) since NetFlix launched in Australia? If not, which ISP are you with? I'd love to be playing some GTA Online heists right now, but it's impossible with the severe packet loss.

    I don't want to sound political about this but this is exactly what the NBN was going to solve, now we don't have it, thanks tony

    I'm on TPG in Melbourne .. Haven't noticed any slowdown since Netflix
    14ms and 15Mbps here on speedtest

    Nbn hasn't made much of a difference if the people complaining on whirlpool is anything to go by

    Well there is no NBN hence why there is complaining, i was in Belgium when Netflix came to town, they put in more backbones to the nodes but most people are on VDSL and cable

    I'm on iiNet NBN in Perth and I've noticed slowdowns during peak times..

    I have a 25MB/s connection but I've seen it drop as low as 3MB/s in the past few weeks.. never happened before. I think it's not just the lack of NBN, the ISPs seem to be struggling a bit with infrastructure too.

    I have too. Clearly this isn't exactly what the NBN should've solved.

    I have 100/40.

    Edit: clearly there's an advantage of being on FttH instead of ADSL/etc, but like fnp said, it's not the 'customers' end problem... ISPs seem to have been taken by surprise, which affects any connection type.

    On TPG adsl2 nothing has changed. No packet loss.

    Only slow down is when trying to run 3 separate screens on Netflix and browsing at the same time.

    SpeedTest is fine here too, but real world usage is not. Makes me wonder if certain traffic is being prioritised (such as SpeedTest, considering it's the first avenue for Customer Support when you have a complaint regarding your connection).

    iiNet ADSL2 here.

    Speed dropped from 14Mb to 7Mb. Massive latency issues as well.

    Found out I have Telstra cable available. Jumping ship. Fuck ADSL with a rusty pitchfork.

    Most issues people are seeing is congestion at the poi/nni and the nbn would do little to fix that.

    I personally doubt netflix has anything to do with - it's only been out for what? a month? either way, I doubt subscription is that high that suddenly all/any congestion is due to it

    I've used 350gb of Freezone in the last 20 days, which is all netflix, so wouldn't take long to add if thousands of people are doing the same...

    A free trial month on a hyped service and you suspect that people aren't going to use it?

    Netflix got 2.6 mil overseas subs this past month (countries other than US) and the majority of those were Australians.

    I haven't noticed any speed issue. I wouldn't be surprised however, if ISPs start throttling.

    Download speeds during peak times has dropped from the usual 113Mbps+ to around 105Mbps so it is having some impact. Nothing to bitch about though.
