In my old thread http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=49&topicid=57614&page_no=1#300461 I was discussing / asking reasons for why speeds would be so vastly different between Telecom and Vodafone. Due to the circumstances in my examples most replys pointed the finger at other factors, rather than direct differences between the two providers.
As an update, I have now shifted to Vodafone in my new house, with telecom on ADSL2+ I was connecting at 6mbit, and getting 5.5ish on speed tests.
Today, after the change over I am now at 9mbit connect rate - last speed test was 8.5mbit
This is a fairly huge difference in my opinion, and I'm curious to know why even after calling Telecom to make sure I was on correct profile etc they still couldn't make my connection much faster, but with Vodafone its at much higher speeds on day 1.
Gotta be exchange equipment yeh? If so... why is Telecoms equipment inferior?
