Hi guys,

 

Are there any NZ internet providers that a better than others for overseas streaming.

 

I stream a lot of TV from the UK.

 

Someone told me 2 Degrees for example goes via San Francisco in the US then onto the UK and back again. (Causing a lot of buffering.)

 

Is there a way around this?

 

 

 

Thanks

No issues for me with streaming from the UK on 2 Degrees using Unotelly.

I'm on a Fibre Network.

 

No problem at all streaming from the U.S.

 

Have tried a VPN - but no better.

 

 

 

Thanks

Well I'm on ADSL1, with around 5 down and 1 up speeds at home.

 

Have been with Slingshot and now Voyager, and stream stuff from the UK (BBC iPlayer) and never have an issue, and also iTV.

 

Appears to be in HD as well.

 

Using Getflix
