Internet map shows big variations in broadband consumption

 

At last - something useful from Stuff.  smile

Two navigable and zoomable maps:

 

Internet usage, July 2016
Change in connection speed

These are national maps of internet consumption compiled by Chorus.

 

The maps show Chorus' copper and ultrafast broadband (UFB) networks but DO NOT measure the data consumption of people on networks that aren't owned by Chorus.
These include Vodafone's cable networks in Wellington and Christchurch and the UFB networks in Christchurch, Whangarei and the central North Island, including Hamilton.

What I like best about that map is that it calls my area by its correct name - Franklin District.

I don't even know how much I use in a typical month, but I suspect that it's more than Whakatane's 84 GB average.

 

Meanwhile, poor little Kawerau with no usage data (the little triangular one "inside" Whakatane District).

Good to see high usage on Little Barrier Island - where I believe one DOC ranger lives! surprised

 Does this map make sense? Am I reading it right?

 

 

Franklin usage goes from 46GB to 23GB, and this is a 122% increase, not a 50% decrease?

Looks like a glitch; Franklin District is showing 46->103 for me.

Ahah, if I just hover the mouse over Franklin it says 46 to 103, but if I click on the area the numbers change to 46 to 23.

 

Bizarro.

I wonder whether this correlates well with sales of Kleenex? tongue-out

I'm seeing the same thing - on iPad. It's as if the dates are the wrong way around?

Looking at the source data, the 2016 usage shown when clicked is indeed being taken from the wrong column (the 2016 connection speed column instead of the usage column). The values shown when hovering are correct.
