Took 3 days, but i now have UFB in Fairy Springs, Rotorua.




I might be the 1st, but Chorus have 6 other Orcon customers to hook up in the next couple of weeks.
Apparently we get connected before even the Chorus depot Tongue Out

Those speeds to Orcon are what I am getting here in Camborne, Porirua, as well. But my ping is 11-12ms.

johnr: ping 0ms?

Because screw Physics :P If a man want's to send data with 0 delay, then sure, why not? lol, I guess he just got a lucky test and it got rounded down to 0.

OK so my PING is not really ZERO now, just a normal FIVE.

My school's Fibre connection (North Shore, Auckland, via Vector's Network), gets a ping between 0-5. Very rarely gets 0, but it happens :)

Also, I'm guessing you are on the 30/10 plan? (Just checking, because some customers aren't able to get their full speeds on their 100/50 plans).
