Had Fibre installed yesterday.
The Chorus guys have been great. From the guys that did the wiring from the road, to the technician that spent 4.5 hrs with us yesterday, our experience has been an excellent one.
Unfortunately the speed of the UFB is not so amazing.
I have my iMac plugged directly into the modem router and that is giving us 98/21 every time I do a speedtest.
Via wifi, using the Slingshot-provide Netcomm modem router, I am getting 33/20 on average (sometimes as slow as 20/20, other times as fast as 37/21.
So...upload is as fast on wifi and wired connection, but download is abysmally slow for what I expect via wireless on UFB - that's more like VDSL speeds.
Don't get me wrong, it's way better than the 8/1 we were getting on ADSL, but it's not good for UFB, in my opinion.
Is there something I am missing? A setting i should change? Should i speak to Slingshot to enquire (the issue being that they will state that I am getting the advertised speed on my iMac)?
