At the moment though I have been experiencing ping times in excess of 18,000 milliseconds. EIGHTEEN THOUSAND MILLISECONDS. I find a ping time of a just a couple of thousand milliseconds unusably slow!
Buck up your ideas, Telecom. I'm getting mightily pissed off with the crap service I have been receiving from you of late. here is an equation for you:Crap XT phone service + with crap mobile internet service = customer looking around for other service providers for 3 x mobile phones, 2 x mobile internet connections, 3 x landlines and any other services we get from you. In addtion it also means that said customer will vent quite freely about Telecom's crap service to anybody who will listen - and I suspect that there are quite a few of them around the place at the moment - and also possibly advise clients to think twice about using Telecom's service.
An ending. Just did another quick ping test and it was bouncing from > 13,000 ms to over 20,000 ms. This is clearly fucking ridiculous. Click on the image to see the stupid ping times.
