Worth noting they will almost certainly have speedtest.net servers whitelisted in their user/traffic management systems.

not shabby, but i suspect local speeds to be good seeing as peering traffic and domestic is cheap, what about some internationa lspeed tests?

Also, do you think that many people will be on this service yet, wait till it's got a few 1000 users on.

All i have to say is that speed tests both local and international but download speeds are acting really odd, essentially HTTP whether its something like Rapidshare or just a general site start out either full speed or capped at around 200-300 KB/s then after a few minutes it will crash and speeds will either completely stop or will sit at around 5 KB/s.

FTP acts in a similar way, starts off at around 200-300 KB/s and then drops to 60-70 KB/s after a few minutes.

So they are rate shaping based on traffic load, i.e. after 10mb traffic to a specific IP then drop the download speed to XYZ pool, we do similar for our residential clients during the day, we provide priority to business customers this way, then at night the queues get changed for the traffic over 10mb in size.

It is possible, except with this it seems to be most of the day, even in the evenings, i havn't been up in the middle of the night to check speeds.

80-120kbps seems reasonable, i've never had much better on other NZ isps even when properly forwarded, etc. I went through 150GB a month on a mixture of 80-120kbps torrents and browsing/streaming media/podcasts so i'm sure this will still be a good plan for me.
