Looks like to me you are only worried about numbers, What do you need the speed for? 

 

I would be more worried about latency

I take your point, which is why I made the joke about synthetic tests in my last post.

 

That said, if the actual connection was running at those ~3.5Mbps speeds (which it's not), I would consider that too slow for normal use.

What do you consider normal use? You don't need 3.5Mbp/s to open Trademe in an ok time you can even watch YouTube on this speed (not HD)

Cloud services mostly. Like if I need to download a 500MB OneNote notebook, I don't want it to take forever.

500MB at 3.5Mbps is 20 minutes. Sure, that's a non-issue...

I'll certainly comment in onenote, its syncing can be sluggish (for my expectations) over 1g links...


Wbb is expected to be 5mbit+ but I'd normally see upper 2 digit plus....

The other day I had to re-download a 438MB notebook because OneNote spat one of those 0xE000... errors and refused to let it sync. I wasn't timing, and I don't know whether the connection was H+, but I'd guess that it downloaded in less than 3 minutes and I remember thinking "thank god this isn't my ADSL home connection".

 

Not sure what you're getting at though, because the Vodafone connection was still fast. At least the DL was. I had to upload a ~2GB video a couple of weeks ago, and I really could have done with the 35Mbps up connection then.

 

EDIT: Looking at the way OneNote loads notes, I can't be certain that it downloaded the entire notebook in the time I thought it did. Regardless, my OneNote experience on mobile has been notably faster than on my 8Mbps  ADSL2+ home internet.

I wonder why you don't get 4G on your VodafoneNZ connection approx where are you located and does the Vodafone coverage map show 4G for that area?

Can you DM me the number that only gets 3G so I can get it checked for 4G access in the HLR
