Well I did my tests at 8:35am and you did yours at 11am, so I don't think you can use it as a direct comparision.

And I certainly wasn't claiming to get those speeds all the time or anything. It still may be that Snap's international leaves somewhat to be desired compared to say telecom, but someone was saying theres no difference in speed with snap on ADSL/VDSL/UFB and obviously that is not right.

Also regarding speed at 1am, thinking about it it may be that 7-9am may be the time you get best speeds with snap as the unlimited nights option goes from 1am to 7am so unlike other networks, there may be a fair bit of off peak traffic.

Granted the time difference, but if you take into consideration the normal peak times 9am-5pm, and 1-7am, there isn't much in between to have "off peak" speeds. The fact is, I have yet to see anything more than 10Mb/sec for Australia (if that), and ~2.5Mb/sec in the US. You surely can't say you have ever experienced the same on VDSL?

There does seem to be more variability compared to when I was with telecom, but I was only on ADSL with telecom.

I think you should redo the tests in the morning e.g. 8am to telstra in Aussie and see how you get on. If you are on 30/10 UFB and not getting 10Mbit to telstra in Australia that seems wrong. Testing to the USA is a different beast entirely.

Perhaps do some traceroutes to various servers, so people on other connection methods can compare?
If Snap FTTH customers take different routes it should show up.
I'm on Snap naked ADSL2+, here are some speedtest.net results and traceroutes to the servers:

Paths are the same, which is what I expected. But you can see the big difference in speeds... Australia looking better though.

wow sneake... nice ping... personally i'd recommend testing with iperf in udp mode if you have a linux box, and access to a fast host. (iperf under windows doesn't deal so well with high bit rates of udp)

there could be packet loss, out of order packets, tcp window size munging, or various other things that can create such conditions.

it's kind of looks similar to what buba congestion used to look like on adsl though, which fwiw, seemed to only happen on downstream traffic not upstream.

that said your ping is real low. and if there's congestion you'd think it'd lag by at least 5 msec on top of your normal ping.

other thing you can do is try pingplotter and see graph to see if there's packet loss happening. but sometimes ping can show diff to real traffic. like in the example you had: 5 157 ms 366 ms 9 ms 203.167.233.10 is probably fine.


considering your download speed problems rather than uploads you really want traceroutes back to you from external.

McGee: Yes but you do realise that no mater what the medium is that you're using it's still using the exactly same international paths ?

Just because you've bought a different delivery medium doesn't mean it's going to give you preferred access over other users or connection types or necessarily?increased performance internationally.?


Then back to my original argument. Why would anyone get UFB through Snap? There is no benefit! Nothing worth while is available nationally, so if you say that I'm getting what I pay for because I can get full speed nationally is rubbish.
The general idea you would take away would be faster connection = faster service to the things I do online.


Hello good sir,

Where are you testing to? Can you give me a few IP addresses? I wanna try the same thing from my Snap connection!

I'm not as proficient with Linux, let along have a dedicated box for this. I'm not sure doing any more extensive test will show anything of significance on my end. I've done some pathpings to look for any packet loss, but it all seems fine.

I've already contacted Snap about his and they are hopefully looking into it.

I'd like to kno  if someone else has Snap UFB that can run the same speedtests.

Sounds like we have the same issue. I am on the 30/10 plan, and have never seen a speedtest get over 16Mbps, even to an NZ location. I'm lucky to get over 2Mbps to West Coast US.

Here's a test to Aussie just now


I have spoken to Snap and they said Speedtest isn't a reliable indicator, and that the CIR is only 10Mbps. Reading between the lines - "deal with it".

That said, I had pretty crappy DSL prior to this, so I'm happy with a faster connection for less money. It's just a pity it's not as fast as I thought it would be.

So similar problems for both Orcon and Snap UFB. you'd think they wouldn't be hitting anywhere near the CIRs yet and that doesn't even seem like an issues. Perhaps Chorus related? Anyone on other ISPs with UFB got results?

Maybe they mean PIR is 10 megabit.

how's it different from an adsl2+ connection that only does 10 megabit?

it's still faster than 80% of new zealand users.
