Hi all just like and Idea from xtra broadband customers in Hastings, what kinda speeds are they getting?
I'm on the explorer plan and lucky to get 500kb/s downstream?..I live in the Mahora district.
Why I ask is I'm curious to see if its just me getting the "I live to far from the exchange" bla bla or I need to change ISP?

im on Caroline Road, and just got:

With DSLG604T:

800kbps  (on WiFi connection)
740kbps (on WiFi connection)
1075kbps (on CAT5 cable)

With DSL302G:

1600kbps (on CAT5 cable)

Im sure if i logged into a Linux box my results would be higher too.

Hardware and software in the home/office can make a huge difference.
