Hey guys! It's been a while.
Anyways I have just moved to Auckland CBD into an apartment. I've finally gotten my Internet set up but was quite disappointed at the speed I am getting.
(Please take note when I talk about "MegaBits" and "MegaBytes" they are not the same.)
Firstly I'd like to know. If you are on Orcon and living in/near the CBD area what speeds are you getting?
I'm currently in Nelson Street, which is apparently right next to the Mayoral Orcon Exchange and I'm maxing out at only 9Megabits a second. This gives me about an average of 1Megabyte a second download speed. ( And I'm now running the new Orcon HomeHub Router)
When I was living down south in Pukekohe, I was getting 18-20 Megabits per second. Which averaged around 2.5megabytes a second download. ( Was really happy with that )
I guess I thought I would be getting the same speeds if not better since I'm literally next to the exchange. Kinda sad I'm getting ADSL1 speeds on an ADSL2+ plus area.
So what speeds are you getting? Mine below.
