~176Mbps??? I think something is a wee bit wrong here unless you are on some kind of very high grade business connection.

johnr: Latency -1 ms ?


Time travels first step - Data arrives before it leaves (Vodafone is just that good)

Does your router have a flux capacitor?

Damn... My Cisco SRP router must be limiting my connection now. I can only get 85 Mbps to Snap Christchurch from Johnsonville ;)
