DonGould:itxtme: Upgraded yesterday
On the old Telstraclear speed test through our WRP400 best results are 48Mb/s, go directly to the modem over LAN and that jumps up to 98 Mb/s.
Now back to having the router in play, over the Lan downloading 4 files with 5 connections each from US based severs I was getting speeds of around 3000KB/s (approx 21 Mb/s). I am very happy with this performance (internationally), as in the past the best I could get was approx 12Mb/s. Waiting for the impending arrival of my new router to see if it increases the speed
...and this folks is why I spend my days pushing telcos to speed infrastructure up! The follow on effect is that people like this guy then go out and buy a new 'something'.
It's why we need to continue to push for bigger and bigger data caps in the 1 and 2Tb space.
It drives the rest of the industry in my view.
A few carriers already offer 1TB data caps today over xDSL connections including Vodafone NZ
