I am getting VERY good speeds (both national and international) now on Go Large, possibly since many people have changed off it?

I regularly see sustained averages of 380 - 440kbps on my downloads, and the following speed was sustained for a minute or so, with the entire download averaging about 400kbps....

No improvement here, in fact at times a slight decrease in the speed tests.
 


Though in saying that, it is capable of fast speeds time to time and it depends on which sites you visit too.

I know this won't last, but for the past few hours I have actually had good download speeds! I was getting HD movie trailers from apple.com at a constant 400-500KB/s..

I thought I wouild be smart and changed from Telecom's Go-Large to Woosh's Orbit Flatrate (the same just managed by Woosh), and at the start speeds were far better, but they are slowly getting worse and worse, and now are as slow as dialup.

I also notice Woosh has no longer has the Orbit Flatrate plan available on thier website....

My speeds today:
