i did it 10 minutes after you, and i also live in auckland, we both have the same speed so why on earth is mine 2200kbps faster than you?!

Telstra Ugly! 10MB residential cable (incidentially this sites under measures speeds much over 4MB).


Oh no wait sorry wrong thread :)

I've run the NZDSL test at different times on different days, but typically the results are as follows:

- Early evening (6:00-8:00PM): 500kbps downstream and 114kbps upstream.
- Late evening (8:00-9:45PM): 1000kbps down and 130kbps up.
- Most other times: 3000kbps down and 130kbps up.

Xtra's speed test reported the following at 9:25: Your line speed is approximately 657.8 Kbps or 80.6 K bytes/sec

Earlier in the year, about 1 month after they "increased" everyone to 3.5MBit, I tested the line speed over 1 week each day in the morning, afternoon and evening. It seems that off peak speeds have improved since then, but the peak evening hours are around 20% slower.:)

hehe yeps

Actually last month Telstra screwed up my port speed after an upgrade here in CHCH and I was getting around 8MB+ upload speed (1024KB/s ish) which was fruiting sweat, unfortunately it reset back to 2MB at the end of the month.

well then it shows what the friggin lines are actually capable of yet they give us a measly 3.5mbit! i know i know, it is changing at the end of the year, but why not NOW?!

There are certain times when the speed was just crawling and then there were times when there is a faster speed...I have all seen it....I think its due to people online in the neighbourhood all online etc...
