I live 1.5 KM from the exchange,
I'm on FS/128 Telecom broadband plan
and also because of an issue of the only phone jack in the house upstairs, and there's only a place for the computer downstarts, there is a 4M+ phone extenstion line between the jack and the router (D-Link G604T) - on this I was recommended that I place the router upstairs and get a 5M CAT5 cable to replace it.
My SpeedTest.net reports a ping of 407 MS,
I live in Dunedin and the closest test ping is in Wellington
My speeds reported as 1835kb/117kb
This normal, or should it be better?
