Vodafone bumps cable speed – TrueNet
Posted on 24-Jan-2014 07:45 by Bill Bennett. | Tags Filed under: News.


TrueNet broadband speed technology comparison december 2013TrueNet broadband speed tests show Vodafone boosted its cable service in December. The broadband testing company reports peak speeds, DNS response time and page download speeds all showed significant improvements during the month.

Although UFB fibre services are faster, the network Vodafone acquired when it purchased TelstraClear is a close second with speeds of around 70 Mbps for most of the day. Orcon and Snap offer the fastest services on their 50/100 Mbps plans.

TrueNet Reports Vodafone Cable scored the best total test page download time. It beat all other networks  including UFB services at 1.4 second. This represents a huge improvement on November’s 2.4 seconds.

New Zealand VDSL services were consistent in December with both Telecom NZ and Snap maintaining speeds at better than 95 percent of the maximum for most of the day.

VDSL performance, meanwhile, was “very consistent” during December, according to TrueNet, with both providers (Snap and Telecom) achieving speeds over 95% of the “best top speed” for most of the day.

TrueNet notes the 100 Mbps fibre and cable offerings have a clear speed advantage over other technologies but says while VDSL is cable of reaching 70 Mbps users generally see slower speeds than they would get from a 30 Mbps fibre service.
