Chorus came by several days early today and was able to install both inside and outside. MyRepublic provisioned what they needed to on their end, and I now have fibre!! The improvement is already massive, especially with regards to latency. In-game latency has dropped from 44+ ms with a lot of fluctuation to a solid 32 ms. Latency is virtually unaffected by anything, even speed tests. I get lower latency now to Auckland than I previously did to Wellington.
Connection speed is also fantastic, of course. I'm breaking 200 Mbps on YouTube with ease, and speed test results are consistent and awesome.
Loving this so far! Contemplating moving some stuff that I host remotely to in-home now, especially since I expect the connection will be more reliable. :)
excellent long may it last
