I can't see cable 130Mbps plan - only options now are 50 Mbps and 100 Mbps.

Did they stop offering it?

omeone found the same thing.

Probably all those complains about paying for 130Mb/s but only getting 100 over Ethernet as not gigbit etc....

 

I bet the network is still designed @ 130Mb/s

dropping down to 100Mb/s also comes inline with their fibre offerings...

makes sense to change their network over to be somewhat unified with what you get on ufb considering cable being the only option where both are available on vodafone....

Would like to know if Vodafone cable options will match 100/20 fiber in terms of price.

Would be happy with 100/10, but it costs more than if I was just to get 100/20 fiber.
Also the most recent latency reports for trunet were disconcerting as I am a gamer, so need as low latency as possible.

I thought they dropped it to 100 to make the future 200 plan more inticing.

Don't know if it's 130 or 100 but it hardly makes much difference to me. This is a typical speedtest to their servers.



This is a wired GBe network using a TPLink TL-WL1043ND router flashed with Gargoyle.

I guess I could try going directly into the modem but it is hardly worth it.

After the recent rounds of upgrades this should now improve

I've been on VF cable at the same Wellington address for 2 years.
I've tried 3 different speeds: 50/2, 100/10, and 130/10Mbps.
With all 3, advertised speeds were obtained 95% of the time (including peak hours).
From the real world point of view, 130/10 had no real advantage over 100/10 - I'd be equally happy with either, provided that it's reliable and doesn't dip too much during peak hours.

There was a problem for a long time with the 130 in that VF couldnt provide it. It was a technical issue. After some time I changed to the cheaper 100/10 plan and received some credit.

A tech did call and advice it was fixed...but I had already plan changed.
