Took me a while to get on it....but once on I've been very happy. Have not noticed any difference in browsing speeds, youtube is fine and since I don't P2P I don't have any shaping issues.

Not bad for this time of night.

And according to the usage meter I've done a tad over 400gb since the 13th, so I'm a happy camper.

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

My bittorrent speed is horrible but I prefer using Rapidshare service anyway - which has been pretty good; using a download manager I can flood the internet connection to around 300KBps - I'm connected to the exchange at 2236Kbps, so it is kind of depressing that I'm not hitting the exchange connection speed like I did in Christchurch.

I'm supposed to be getting switched onto this plan tomorrow. Can't wait!

Interesting results. 24Mb/s is the theoretical max on ADSL2+?

Well after reading most of this Forum post i desided that i will choose this plan. Mind you can't hurt if i trail it for a month.

Currently on Pro plan Connection is on Max Adsl Data Rate 8160 1024 kbps ( Can't wait for Adsl2+ to come to my exchange! ) So in theory i should get the same connection

Also does this plan offer interleaving off ?

Will post results to see what i get when i get moved over
