nathan: right that's it, I'm moving house to get UFB


be careful with that, tried it before with Orcon...was told i definitely have ufb. once we moved in they told us we have ufb but they couldnt provide us with fibre internet, was forced to go with xnet and their crazy data charges. Xnet had monopoly of the area. basically, do your homework....prob the best way is to ask the neighbors.

BOF areas (xnet as SP) are now being sold as and migrated to NGA (Chorus GPON) other providers can now resell these services there is no xnet monopoly.

Hmm might be time for me to finally hop on board the Snap UFB train. Is naked UFB a thing yet with Snap on this plan?

Hi BogBeast

As soon as they offer it, we're in! We actually discussed this with them today and will be looking to arrange a test circuit into Snap HQ next week, so all going well we might be able to offer some Extreme goodness early(ish) in the New Year.

Cheers
Ralph

Please let us know as soon as it is available in Christchurch as I'm definitely in.

Interestingly, at the moment my speedtest.net tests are showing 102 down and 53 up.  I didn't think that was possible with the existing Layer 3 service as the IP protocol overhead required to do this generally consumes about 5-10% of the available bandwidth - have you changed something?

Hi Otagolad

There's a lot of work being done by "the industry" ie LFCs and RSPs around over-clocking of services, so that the RSP can deliver (if they're good!) the headline speed. You're seeing the results of this now.

200/50 trial service with Enable has been booked for next week.

Cheers
Ralph
