Just got set up with Orcon VDSL today because the 1.7 Mbps upload I was getting from Slingshot wasn't enough for my needs.
I now have 1Mbps upload speed.
Strangely, the testing site thinks I'm in Auckland when I'm in Wellington and I get a lower ping when connecting to an Auckland server than Wellington servers.
whatismyipaddress.com also said I was in Auckland until I clicked the allow the site to see my location prompt (which doesn't show up on speedtest)
https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=82&topicid=141269 found this thread and it sounds like I'm too far away from the exchange. Even if I can get the speeds they're complaining about I'd be sufficiently happy
People also mention in that thread something called a master splitter should be installed for VDSL. No technician from any ISP has come and done anything at my flat since I signed up to Slingshot ADSL in 2014. Orcon said when setting me up, they would do everything remotely. So I'm under the assumption I do not have this master splitter?
Edit: Just compared my download speeds on the Battle.net app and I'm getting about the same there as I did on Slingshot if that's at all relevant
