Thanks TelstraClear for the free speed upgrade from 4 Mbps to 10 Mbps on my 10GB plan. Now I wonder if that will improve Youtube performance?

Read about it here.

Yes, they must be changing a lot of the plans. An extra 10gb on our plan.

I got that speed upgrade email too, but would really have preferred the traffic upgrade, we are always going over our 10gig cap...kids on PCs for most of the afternoon along with my wife doesn't help I am sure.

Still - 10Mbs instead of 4Mbps for free I am not complaining at all.

TCL's plan offerings have always compared very favourably with Naked ADSL plans - I think that's why they even hiked their pricing because they were too cheap!

As a package with phone though many are no longer competitive.

The 10gb upgrade takes us to a 50gb plan (well needed considering we run a lot of our online business on the home internet connection).

I agree. That's why I have the 10GB plan with no phone. I use Xnet/Vfx Voip phone on TelstraClear Cable.
$54.95 for the 10GB plan and $11.25 for the voip phone line: $66.20 per month + cheap toll calls - a pretty good deal for phone and internet if 10GB is enough data cap.

I'm in Kapiti and can't get anywhere near that speed, done a number of tests to Napier and the best I've got is just over 6.00mb/s download.

Well, last time they had the upgrades round, the 4Mbps/10GB plan got missed out.  So I guess it just depends on where in the tree your plan is.

I'm liking my one finally getting the upgrade.
Youtube seems ok so far.  Will keep testing though.

Theres SD.



London is pretty suck.



Sydney rocks.

Overall, good job TCL, now if you could only decrease the price of the 20gb cable plan.

Iceni, have you tried the sydney server?
