Just after some opinions. We recently had UFB installed with Orcon. Our speedtest.net results are reasonably good - averaging around 22mbps down and 10mbps up (pings are normally <100ms) for the local Wellington server.
Local sites are generally fast (trademe, stuff etc) but international sites are really slow (wired, tmz etc). TMZ takes around 12 seconds to render (Chrome, Win 7 64 bit, i5 processor).
I know its depends on the device but my Win 7 laptop, Galaxy tab and the wifes iPad are all having this issue. Anything international seems to be stuck in molasses.
As an example I downloaded an app off the Play store tonight which was around 4mb and this took a good 80 seconds over WiFi while on 2 degrees (3G) it took 14 seconds (even repeated this a few times to make sure nothing was caching - similar results each time).
We were previously with Telecom ADSL and never had issues like this.
Does this sound right to anyone?
