Upload: 0.6-0.75Mbps (Speedtest, Clocked 0.50Mbps actual uploads)

F*ck Telstra :/

Get a VPN my man. Could up your upload/download speed. :grinning:
Not here.
Unlike America where using a VPN could remove some stress from a Network, in turn giving you a cleaner upload and download, in Australia, our ISPs (or I should say, Telstra, cause nearly every decent ISP just rents server specs off Telstra) f*ck us over with VPNs by slowing our networks and actually taking away a lot of bandwidth (well, so I found with many many many tests).

Not only that, but it would add more latency.
Let's say it's 20ms for my home network to reach my ISP, then I have to reach my VPN, maybe an additional 60ms (that's being pretty fair too), so we have 80ms, then our games server, maybe 80ms, 160ms in total...
There's a four bar gone, and a lot of missing packets.

What pings do you have usually? This sounds quite bad...
