johnr: You started the same thread the other day, You need to wait for the 3G / 4G upgrade to MTB


This is worse than the usual slowdown. To not even make 1 mbps is a tad unimpressive for a network that advertises itself as being at the cutting edge.

I accept we are waiting for network improvements - although why almost every other town in the Wairarapa is done and we aren't I am not sure - but a fall from even the 6 or so it seems to have settled at recently to 0.77 seems a bit drastic.

As I said, maybe the elves are using VF 3G!

I would expect the performance in rural area to take hit during the holiday season.
