Hey all, I was just wondering if you could tell me how to figure out what speed my woosh connection is running at? I was going to call and complain as it is so slow, but I'd like to know what speed I am actually pulling. Thanks

Try speed tests.

They're everywhere. Speedtest.net is one. You can also try the list of speed tests by visiting the New Zealand Connections Wiki.

Speed test are only an indication of speed!
They cannot be relied on to give an accurate answer.

I would suggest you perform regular speedtest over a week or two, at several different times of day. Then submit all of the results to Woosh. That way they are going to take you more seriously.

I should of said that in my post, but yes, if you're having trouble always have a good range, so they actually have something to work on.
