Mainly see issues after 4.00.pm
Last couple of days have shown very poor measurements even within NZ. (National Servers)
This seems to have changed this evening (25/03/2012 20:25) with all NZ servers on speedtest.net now giving good up/down.
Testing against Brisbane(internode) either 12.0-12.5 Mb/s or 1.5-3.0Mb/s. Depending on what time of the day it is.
Up: very stable on all tests at 0.9 - 0.95 Mb/s
Local test via slingshot page very stable at 12-12.5 Mb/s (always)
