I'm just curious as to what others on different Xtra plans are getting internationally, as the Go Large speed at the moment is giving a decent latency and local speed again, but as soon as it travels outside of New Zealand it goes down to 56k speeds.

My partner changed us to Go Express (2GB unconstrained up/down) [gawd knows why, she didnt check our usage which is consistently 12 - 15GB].

On this plan, my internation speeds are 600kbps down, 400kbps up.

over 750kbps up local, and anywhere up to 6.5Mbps down local.

Hmmm that fits with my speed. I get 3000mbs locally and then its about 1/8 or 1/10 that speed internationally and that seems to be about the same as yours. I guess even changing plans won't get me out of this slow speed hell.
