    Unhappy International internet speed

    I have a serious problem with international internet speed. Trying to find out who to blame. Using test at http://www.speedtest.net to New York, London and Singapore I get under 1 mbps. Service provider is Homeconnect on Vuma. They have been good but lately I have only issues. Today their help line had half a peanut. "They do not have servers internationally" so they cannot help. Locally I get promised 20/20 mbps.

    Has anybody else issues? If there are some Homeconnect users please let me know what are the results.

    Using the above mentioned test to Italy I have download 0.55 mbps. Again upload up to 10 mbps. Especially on download the line is dead for a file and then starts improving. Dead time is 30 to nearly 50% of the test time. Similar issue when loading sites. Broken connection or starts loading after a while.

    Trying to eliminate reason item by item.
