Firstly I'd like to say forgive me if this has already been thoroughly discussed elsewhere, in which please feel free to link me to that post.
So my question to people who already have Fibre or some form of "UFB" (Telstra's 100mbit cable, or VDSL, etc) is what kind of speeds are you getting to other countries? Seen as a huge majority of our daily web applications are hosted internationally I feel these 30/10, 100/50 speeds people are getting are fairly "useless" unless the international speeds are improved as well.
To anyone who is willing to spend a couple of minutes testing this for others to see in this post, please post:
- The plan you are paying for (eg: 100/50, 30/10, 50/50, etc - regarding speed)
- Some speedtest results to NZ servers
- And then any speedtest results you get to international server (especially, Australia, USA, etc)
Of course SpeedTest.net Only shows part of the story however I feel it would be a good start in determining how useful these new UFB technologies actually will be in real world usage. If anybody else has other simple ways of testing international bandwidth that would be great! :)
