My UFB connection is up and running for last week or so thanks to Chorus and Vodafone (am on Vodafone's trial).

I'm working on a blog post and will get it online soon detailing experiences with Netflix, etc.

It seems Vodafone put each of us on their trial on one of the following (free):
- 120GB + phone line
- 200GB (Naked - no phone)

I'm on a 100mb/s (down) 50mb/s (up) plan.

Here's some of my Speedtest results:

Local




 International (California)

Not bad speeds there!
Have they announced any kind of pricing?

I'm doing this over WiFi so not as ideal as doing it over a wired connection, using DownThemAll!, the test file is from here
