We are increasing testing three-fold and need more TelstraClear DSL customer volunteers.  Help us to improve New Zealand broadband performance by volunteering to host one of our probes.

The probe is a bridged router with an 802.11n wifi on board that we encourage you to enable through our website.

Volunteers from anywhere are needed, I'll update here when that changes

Panelist migration to Fibre has reduced DSL coverage, especially ADSL.  To assist by volunteering see our FAQ page

My apologies, I forgot to put a link :-(

How to volunteer and what we do is all explained here https://www.truenet.co.nz/get-involved-become-volunteer-tester

We have been swamped with TelstraClear Cable volunteers on the 2/15Mb/s service, but we are accepting some on the new 100/10 service.

BUT, we are a long way behind all other ISPs on TelstraClear's ADSL volunteers - is there any out there? We need almost 60 and have just 11! We are under our limit in all regions.

Ive got a Truenet access point — had it for weeks — but still can't use it. Doesn't bother me too much but it's just sitting there because it hasn't been flashed with a fix for the connection issue.

Try connecting it to the internet, either directly or via your LAN, it should update immediately to the new version, give it a couple of hours before connecting it to the modem

Ok. Don't know when it's updated, but I assume it works when the wifi on the device turns on.
