I decided to test this last night (around 10pm), but had to abort it. When the timer got to 1hr34mins I decided enough was enough. Will have to give it another go tonight, but considering it's been like this for a while not, I'm not holding out much hope.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

I've now got around 30 records - keep them coming in!

Still haven't got any details between 1am-6am, 11am to 3pm, 11pm-1am (though some are in work hours).

Please do note that one of the requirements is the broadband plan - not the speed (unless like Actrix which they only name them by speed). This is used for referencing plans in possible future comparisons.

Whoa.... Google Pages got thrashed!



So off goes Firefox to my New Zealand Connections iPhone site, also located in CA - you can view my updated link in my original post.

This might or might not affect speeds (I'm obviously hoping for the latter!) I'll make sure this doesn't affect it too much by just averaging this over a period of a month.

So get cracking!

P.S. I will release records (not results, or graphs) by the end of the week!

TechnoGuy001: How long did it take to download the file?: Pending 70KB/5.8MB (been going for 5 mins) will edit time when/if it finishes.

At that rate... it will take around 7 hours!
