    In the nicest possible way, you're a bastard. What router are you using?

    I'm still stuck on ADSL. Is that with bigpipe?

    The bog standard Huawei 659 that Spark provide (I have a TP-Link in the lounge for the WiFi for the house).

    I just upgraded from "Naked Unlimited" to "Fibre MAX" - technically, it's supposed to be 1000/500, but hey... close enough for now...

    Wow....I am thoroughly amazed that Huawei can achieve that throughput. What are you paying per month for that connection? Bigpipe is $129 for the same thing.

    $139 a month - time to review my mobile plan - think I'm paying too much there and can trim it a bit....

    Very reasonable. I would personally change out the Huawei for one of these....

    The Netflix service at fast.com is reporting around 700 Mbps down - which is plenty for streaming from their servers, but understandably a little different from Spark's servers

    I still just can't believe that Huawei is actually capable of that much throughput lol.
