Hi All.

I am having to upload large files to ftp site on a regular basis some times a few a week..

my 1.5mb upload is driving me to despair as its usually a lot slower..

Is there anywhere in central auckland I can go pay to do this with a super fast upload speed ?  

I am happy to pay just don/t know where to go ? 

many thanks

Sam

The Internet cafe next to Korean/Corner Pancake on Lorne St (next to Khartoum Place/Wellesley Street) has a very fast Orcon connection. I usually take my laptop. Costs about $3/hour if you bring a laptop, or $2 to use one of their computers from memory. There's probably a thousand of these places around Auckland though. ;)

You could always switch to VDSL2 if you're within the coverage footprint.

Wouldn't NZPost or SneakerNET be faster/cheaper?

Peppery, i cant tank you enough...

sbiddle, yes i looked into it and would love to but worldNet worries me they don't have a good reputation..
Was hoping telecom would soon do VDSL ... i would be happy to pay 120 month for 60GB but other isp's seem to want $250ish

Lennon no sorry Auck > Wellington is too slow usally want it there within a hour or sooner.


thanks all

You're not going to get that pricepoint so I'd stick to an internet cafe if you're not willing to pay the market price. There are around half a dozen ISP's offering VDSL2 now but none are going to be close to what you want to pay.

Worldnet has a terrible reputation for poor performance and customer service, my advice would be avoid.

Have you tried contacting Snap or Unleash to find out what their VDSL2 pricing is?

That speedtest pic is part of his signature, its not part of his reply to you. I think you will find the speeds you got there is all they have to offer.

Also for VDSL2 are your uploads national or international? I know Xtreme Networks has unlimtied national VDSL2 at $150 a month but international is quiye expensive. Unleash are cheaper, its $96 per VDSL2 connection i believe and then you pay for your national/international data on top - e.g. 500GB national and 50Gb international is about $250 a month.
