TimA: Probably Vodafone.
Must be our Ultra fast broadband customer on cable and UFB plans chewing up too much bandwidth. Might need more bandwidth?


VDSL would be nice for those of us unlikely to see UFB this decade.

Quite agree myself. Hope we get VDSL at some point. I live 2 houses outside of UFB currently available.

Ah, I remember you wanted it as a second line.

We're not doing that for the trial sorry, but you could always switch your primary line to us and then if/when vodafone decide to launch VDSL with no data cap, connection fee or contract for $99/month you can switch back to them.

That seems too ideal for it to happen, VDSL for $99 with no datacap?? What is this theory you have pondered.
Enticing but i wouldn't want to ruin my 10 year tenure with VF. Could you provide a price for a new service lead and i maybe willing to pay installs etc.

(I meant Wouldn't want to ruin my tenure)

sorry, we don't actually have the ability to do 

You could always get someone like VF (or maybe Flip?) to install the second line, then switch it to us.

Hmmm, Will see. Can someone vouch offshore speeds on VDSL compared to local :)
I like me netflix. Currently get 16-19Mbp/s to USA

16-19Mbps speed to the USA on standard ADSL2?   (your sig shows UFB speedtest, but you said you cant get UFB, so I assume you are on ADSL)
which has theoretical max sync rate just to the local cabinet of 24Mbps?
But almost never give speedtests to domestic servers above 20Mbps?

are you sure you aren't caching your results accidentally?

I synch at 22Mbp/s Local throughput is 19.8Mbp/s
Speed tests are from work as you can see VF-NZ internet networks. Pingtest is from home.

This might explain something. (If you are a rural user look away)

Yeah, I saw that before

so local throughput it 19.8Mbps, but you can still speedtest to the USA at 16-19Mbps?
It just seems... unlikely.

I get 14 on speedtest and max on multithreads.
