Downloads very slow/stalls, yet speed tests ok@ Bukit Batok East!?

MaxInfinity 1Gbps, all speed tests are good on speedtest.net 800-900Mbps. However, downloads from overseas/some local sites are very slow and erratic and stall frequently. Web surfing seems ok but - even these forum pages are slow to load.

 

On commandline when I use wget / curl a URL  the speed will drop gradually and they will stall.

 

Anyone having this at Bukit Batok East area?

 

Have power cycled the ONT with no change. When I connect to office VPN can transfer large files from office web servers with no issue. Seems like ONT and router are all working. The problem is downloading from other sites.

 

Eg. mirror.0x.sg is a local fast mirror - when I download a large file from Commonwealth area around 4-5Mbps; at Bukit Batok E it is < 200kbps - and the download will stall frequently.
