I have been with my republic since the 12th of last month, by now orcon would have slowed my speed down, and my speed with my republic has been consistent.  Online gaming on my xbox has improved a lot, my last speed test on the xbox with latency used to be 134, and it has dropped to 0.  Its been really awesome, internet on my phone and other devices using the wifi has been fast.  Downloading things that are over a gig used to take 5 minutes, now it takes 30 seconds to 1 minutes or 2 (mainly if downloading an 100 gig update for a game). I have been really enjoying it with my republic and so far feel that its the best choice that I made.

 

 

 

Not to mention that when I had talked to tech support 9about the router when I first got it, was miss configured.) I was able to talk to tech support at my level, and not be treated as though Im stupid and he actually understood me with out asking me to repeat it or what I meant, he just got it.

 

 

 

Thank you My republic.

I am pretty sure between the two Orcon have the better network since your traffic doesn't have to always go to Auckland. On my testing I've actually found that MR have higher latency due to this compared to the bigger providers. It is also impossible to have 0ms latency unless if things were on the same network (and even there you're talking about 0.1ms).

 

But anyway glad it is working well for you. Be interesting what has changed in your network - new router?

Only new things is the free router from myrepublic, same cables, same port on the ONT:

 

 

 

 

Just everything has been better with my republic so far :-).  Although I have had a few mates that where having the same problems as I was having with orcon.  They too have moved and have had peace with the services as well.

@Kiwiprobie Not a fair test then. Many people have told you the problems with your Orcon connection are likely related to your router and now you've got a new router and it is magically working far better (along with another ISP - however likely unrelated).

 

Glad the new router is working well for you :)
