So I started a speed test a couple of months ago and asked a group of you to help me out (thanks to those that have! It's still open). I just went in to check it and someone from the Ukraine tested on my wave 5 days ago. I AM SO MOVING TO THE UKRAINE! :D http://www.speedtest.net/wave/085acb5bbfe200ec?

It makes NZ look pretty pathetic doesnt it, and we are only talking about getting 100mb/s by 2019, think what the rest of the world will be on by 2019.

Shame our Govt cant actually look ahead instead of looking at what is acceptable right now. They should be planning to give us 1000mb/s by 2019, we will still be behind, but not enough to look like a 3rd world country.

I'll tell you what though, that speedtest from UberNetworks in Whangarei is rather impressive. A pity that the southern cross cable is bound to hamper it's performance internationally though. I checked their website too... more data than I get on TelstraClear's cable plans here in Christchurch, at over three times the speed for less money. If only a competitor like that was available down here in Christchurch. It would be great. :/

What part of Christchurch are you in? That network mentioned is part of the UFB roll out in NZ. All part of Crown Fibers plan for the new roll out. When the Pacific Fiber cable comes in we will be fine. But like Iantech said, our Government just isn't planning far enough ahead.

Ouch! Sucks to be then. At least we know the queen won't be torrenting. :)
