I have been doing some speedtests to various places and they have me scratching my head a little, especially the results to LA compared to others I have seen posted on these forums.
I live in Wellington and have a fixed IP address. I had UFB for about two years, the last 10 months or so having been with BigPipe. A test to the Spark Wellington server give me:
A little odd but ok. The result when I test to Auckland is what I would expect/hope for:
A test to Sydney give me the following:
That will do fine, especially as apart from the ping it is actually a little better than I get to Wellington. But then we have the kicker with a test to LA:
This is the best result I could get, testing to every server in LA on Speedtest. I realise that we are heading in to West coast prime time but still. I have seen people getting easily over 100mbps to LA and I can't even seem to break 30. Is this just an issue for me or a BigPipe problem. I am interested to see what others have to say.
