Today I decided to download a movie from Amazon Instant Video, and it came down quite fast. so I decided to go on a round of speedtests*. I am on a Vodafone cable plan (HFC network, 130 Mbps down/10 Mbps up).

Something must have changed because… just look at these numbers:

To Sydney:


To Los Angeles:


To Amsterdam:

 



And this is to Auckland:


Pretty impressive and well done Vodafone. Now we just need some larger caps at so we can use more of those speeds.

What are you folks seeing on xDSL offerings?



* Yes, I know speedtests aren’t conclusive. External networks have bottlenecks, servers may not have large enough capacity, etc. But it’s a reference as good as any and for what’s worth some of that do reflect in how fast your browsing, streaming and downloading work.

I am aware of some planned work on international traffic that was coming up before Christmas, I know very very little what was actually happening so I could not comment on what was done

Looks like it could be related
