Well, Im impressed!!!

I swapped from telstra / telecom to vodafone to get a bundle package and a better deal.

My speeds were average for the area I live (outside red zone)

Typically 8mb/s up and 70mb/s up and 20 ping with interleaving off (lost of gaming!)

When I change to vodafone, I get about 6.5 mb/s and 60mb/s up with 50-60 ping. Interleaving is on, but not so much gaming. Then along comes BF3..........

So, a little disapointed in the speed drop but not something Im concerned about. Ping however is not good.

So after 3-4 months on vodafone, I call them to turn interleaving off. The phone was answered within 10 seconds (looking good). 'Can I get interleaving turned off?' 'Yes sir, and it will be done within 24 hours'

And thus in 24 hours it was done.......

Now the impressive bit..... 

 Checking the router, I noticed it was connected at 16mb/s. Unusual.
Checked speedtest.net. Result:


WOAH!!
Now, interleaving alone doesnt do that - has something else changed? Has Pukekohe entered the 21st century and been red zoned?

Loving it :-)

Thanks for taking the time to post positive feedback! Over the last few months Vodafone has done huge amounts of work to our fixed line core network and this is also reflected on the truenet results,

The ping does look too low for ADSL though and what are your modem line stats?
