I'm looking for some Auckland Spark subscribers to kindly post their Pings from to:
- their default local server
- the default Sydney server
- and the default LA (USA West) server.

I'm trying to compare the backhaul and general network pathing between Spark, Orcon and Snap before making a decision on who to go with for Fibre.

Any comments, or test results welcome. 

Thanks :)

im on a VDSL connection with an 8ms profile so take approximately 16ms off my results (normally about 5ms) for a better profile VDSL line or what would be the equivalent of a fiber ping. I had a fault on my line on friday and the line is in the process of sorting its self out.
