I'm on F/F Xtra 15 gig plan ... also live a fair distance from the exchange in a semi rural area.

You're looking at Orcon wholesale ADSL 256k/128k 40GB. The former 256k flatrate. Cool

I'm using Xtra Pro Advanced (FS/FS 30GB)

As I expected my downstream speed has not been accurately tested - I can achieve up to a constant 3.5mbiit/s using bittorrent.

Also not on ADSL.







A.k.a. Go Large. And Xtra insists I'm not on 125.x. Moving to Orcon soon!

All of the following tests were performed on Xtra GO LARGE connections.
Location: Mt Roskill, Auckland
Actual connection speeds reported from device were 5280kbps down 160kbps up.

Network config: ad hoc wireless -> desktop doing routing duty -> ADSL modem -> extenstion cable to jackpoint (should really fix that... it brings the speed down a bit)

Accusations of speed stuffing? A screenshot containing the browser (firefox) and the speed test site doing the last site can be provided.

This had a 32kbps audio stream going through at the time. Others did not.

Impressive stuff cokemaster. I'm aware some people are getting good speeds with Go Large; unfortunately I'm not one, and am not aware there's much I can do about it besides changing plans. By the way, if it's not too much off the topic, is your IP address 125.etc?

I'm fairly sure the 125 range is what you'll get if you are on Go Large.
Ever since switching to Go Large this connection in question has been given one of those addresses.

Latest results:

Well seems there was something I could do. After setting up wireless using the DSL-302G/TX with DI-524 and putting aside my trusty Dynalink ADSL router that I'd been using these last 5 years, my downstream speed's suddenly more than doubled:







Now if I can just double it again I'll get to roughly where I was pre-Go Large on Adventure...
