Hello. This is a survey thread only. No discussions please (take them to another thread...).

All I want is the following...

3.5Mbps plan users ONLY (either upload speed - 128 or 512)

Run this speedtest: http://www.nzdsl.co.nz/index.php?module=Speedtest
Then come back here and post the following (within a few mins so I can take the post time/date as data)

Location (suburb+city)
ISP (xtra/ihug/sling etc)
D/L Speed (from the test)
U/L Speed (from the test)

You can post as many speed test results as you like, but please ensure they are as accurate as possible by closing file sharing applications, and any software using the internet. Anytime day or night is good - I want a good cross section.

If you are not an ADSL 3.5Mbps customer, I dont want your results here...
