Hi I know that it's most likely my equipment but I would like to know that other people in Dunedin can get 950Mbps on Spark?
I had a connection speed of 950Mbps with Spark for a few years until suddenly last year when I only got 650Mbps. None of my hardware have changed.
Up speed is 450Mbps.
Pre: Huawei HG659 & Asus RT-AC3200 both gave 950Mbps.
Post: unfortunately the Huawei will not power on. I'm not sure why! So I am unable to check with the Huawei whether it gives 950Mbps.
Firmware: I have used every firmware on the Asus that I can find inc factory resetting after firmware flash. Still stuck at max 650Mbps.
Ethernet with 2 computers one is a high end 6700K desktop which in the past could do 950Mbps. Ethernet with 8750H laptop - both maxing out individually at 650Mbps. When I do a run on both at the same time, the combined speed is 650Mbps, split very evenly between the 2 (both getting 300+ each).
Both running windows 10 with latest update.

***So it's either my router or the Spark fibre.
If people in Dunedin on Spark are getting 950Mbps I could conclude it is my router, short of resurrecting the Huawei.
***Edit: I forgot to mention I asked the installer to install the ONT under my staircase. I then ran a long (30m? - through roof) Cat 6 cable that Chorus supplied and made myself a socket (jack also supplied by Chorus) in my lounge for my router to connect to. The router says it's connected at 1Gbps. Could the cable suddenly lose 30% of throughput? I can't take my desktop under the stairs and I have also since returned the laptop so it will be with some difficulty to connect directly to the ONT - thought I'd start by asking other Spark Gigafibre people what speeds they connect at.
