However some other changes, including big improvements for Orcon and Actirx included for the first time:

Also - some changes to the way I have put the charts together in response to last month's discussion.  
Note: While I agree with the need to have a zero based chart for some applications, in this case it is not that relevant, small changes close to 100% are important, but a performance below 50% would be unusable, i.e. close to zero.  Hence I chose to use 50% as a good compromise

Feedback welcome :-)

Thanks for listening to the feedback from last month, these results look much more transparent

I see telstraclear DSL was omitted from the 'speed by time of day' graph, was this intentional or were those results bundled in with the cable ones?

But I do like the fact that the graph stops at 100% :)

Overall job well done John!

Great to read and awesome to see you're taking and listening to feedback John.

I'm still of the opinion that the reports need to include more measures of international performance, for example for the "Webpage download by ISP" I see that the herald has picked this up with the following as their opener:


Telecom stole the top spot from Vodafone during June and offered the fastest web-browsing speeds over copper internet lines...


ignoring the fact that the graph is headed "NZ webpage..." I would hazard a guess that many users browse and download from many International websites\servers though?
