Today we have published a comparison of speeds, showing the number of probes measuring every speed from 1Mbps to 45Mbps.

Makes interesting reading.

Note that this is fixed line only and excludes the impact of Wifi, PC or Mobile broadband issues.

Very interesting... although given the changes, expected.  Be good to see what UFB does for Jan 2014.

Just a suggestion, expressing the data as a box-and-stick (showing median/quartile/max-min) might be better - as it is it seems jumbled and doesn't clearly show the trend towards greater speed.

Hi John,

I'm just looking and wondering if Vodafone is copping some flack in that thay're prepared to support connections like mine... Telecom wouldn't even allow me to connect at all in my distance location, and, although I'm still working to improve it, my sub1mb connection is still much better than relying on wireless 3G or compass' limited bandwidth plans...


How many ARE longer distance, poor cousins, that VF is prepared to link up, that others wouldn't? How does the comparison stack up when distance is also a factor?

There are maximum attenuation figures for EUBA based products from ISAM's - over that and they should not be installed. The same doesn't supply for BUBA based products from old DSLAM's.
