    I'm having Bigpond Cable installed tomorrow so i'll post an update then. Looking forward to having some reasonable speeds! :thumbup:

    Edit:

    So had cable installed today - a bit of an improvement:

    Can people start posting their speedtests again during peak tv viewing times?

    Since Netflix has started up I have seen peak times drop my Optus Cable connection from 40Mbps to 5.4Mbps!

    No issues here with Internode ADSL.

    Throughput matches line speed. Over wireless through VPN.

    Wow, maybe there is something else going on.

    It is really poor at the moment. Down to 3Mbps now.

    10:45pm on a Monday night and I have a 100% improvement from an hour ago.

    [​IMG]

    And then 35 minutes later and it has improved heaps again:

    [​IMG]

    and theeeeeennnn 10 minutes later we have near enough to full speed...

    [​IMG]

    It is a Monday night however. This is peak torrent time in Australia as most of the more popular Sunday night US TV shows have aired and have been prepped for downloading by the Uploading sites.

    im back up to full speeds again.

    something is really messed up though for your speeds to be down that much, what modem are you using? how old is it?
    i would expect a decrease in speeds thats going to happen, but for you to go from cable to adsl speeds is just mental.

    Late last year, my city won a nation-wide competition to be the first city in NZ to have Gigabit Fibre to the premises, and we recently got two new connections at work and wow the speed! :shock:

    We're being limited by the routers sadly, but sitting mostly at around the 500-600Mb range per connection, and mostly the same in both directions :leet:

    Oh and I should note, these are residential connections, a few of my friends have this to their house, sadly I can't get it :(

    Quite common when you've got a network with synchronous up/down speeds. Lot harder for a non P2P user to saturate up then downstream :)

    I'm glad NZ is still going ahead with that, gives Aussies a good place to relocate :)

    For a business it's understandable, but I don't get why a residential household would need that kind of speeds. Short of running a home business or server.

    I can tell you from experience that working from home on >1mbit upstream speeds is a massive difference.
