I'm looking for some Auckland Orcon subscribers to kindly post their Ping stats from www.pingtest.net to:
- their default local server
- the default Sydney server
- and the default LA (USA West) server.

I'm trying to compare the backhaul and general network pathing between Spark and Orcon and Snap before making a decision on who to go with for Fibre.
(It was the only way I could think of doing a half reasonable comparison)

Any comments, or test results welcome.
Anyone know if Orcon posts their own stats of that nature somewhere?

Thanks :)

If you like to game between 6pm and 10pm any night, forget about it. Don't get me wrong, the download speeds are amazing.

I appreciate your feedback. Especially since I do like to game in the evenings. :)

 

Anyone else with Ping metrics?

Vodafone, Lovely display of peak time performance. Looks to be Chorus network at fault.

Orcon ULL ADSL in Whangaparaoa

 

tbh if you are going for fibre I would wait for Bigpipe to release their plans and if you still need a phone sign up with 2talk or WXC and get a Linksys ATA like a PAP2T

I generally don't have issues at all in fact my VDSL2 line with Orcon has been getting stronger actually.

Also
obligatory ping tests





also if OP can give me a list of games I can also grab ping times to the local game servers





You can also follow me on twitter here @kiwifortw I do twitch streams every now and then at twitch.tv/kiwiforthewin :)

Seems to only be a Fibre issue. I connect at 100/50 with unlimited and have no problems outside of these times.
