To help customers max out on speed and enjoyment from their fibre connection, Vodafone has today announced the Vodafone fibre max plans – Gigabit network plans and pricing for services across the government backed ultra-fast broadband (UFB) network. 

 

It’s called max as customers who upgrade to the new fibre plan will gain access to some of the fastest residential broadband speeds available.

 

The Gigabit network service will give customers a consistently great online experience – even when entire households are browsing, streaming content and downloading large files simultaneously.

 

Customers can sign up to a naked unlimited data fibre max gigabit network plan for $139.99 per month on a 12 or 24 month term. 

 

Customers with a Vodafone On Account mobile plan will receive a $10 discount on either fibre max plan

 

Vodafone customers with an existing fibre connection at their home can easily upgrade to the fibre max plan by contacting us on 0800 533 010.

 

Eligible customers who have UFB in their street but are yet to have fibre connected to their home, can sign up for fibre max and free standard installation will be provided.

 

From today, customers will be able to find out if they are eligible for the max fibre upgrade by visiting their local Vodafone retail store or by contacting 0800 533 010. For more information visit: www.vodafone.co.nz/fibremax

Cable 1000/100. Real world performance is no better than 100/10 with steam downloads often slower than before. This is NOT what I pay for, bring on Fibre already! July 2018 cant come soon enough.

Lets try this again without using edge browser to suck at copy and paste.

 

Got this connected today, up from the 200/20 plan for which i was consistently getting 200 max 204, and upload of about 21/20

 

Using a PC only connected, via hard wire connection.

 

Stock HG659

 

 

 

and 2 using ASUS DSL-AC68U ( one of the lan ports turned into wan)

 

 

 

 

 

Ill be sticking with the asus of course,

 

 

 

Not bad considering the listed speeds are between 900 and 700 down, and 500 up. In fact the speed is insane really.

 

Very happy with that.

The HG659b is easily capable of routing 1000/1000 and is one of the best routers on the market for routing performance easily surpassing devices many times it's price. There is something unique or wrong with your setup if it's performing that poorly.

Maybe because its in direct competition with Fibre.

The only case where that could come into this, is if you compared two connections side by side.

 

 

 

Would be interesting to see none the less, but yes. Keep speedtest in this thread to UFB.
