A not so quick trip to http://www.nzdsl.co.nz reveals that I have blown my data cap for the month.

Last Result:
Download Speed: 48 kbps (6 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 44 kbps (5.5 KB/sec transfer rate)

Yeah baby - thats dialup speed!!

10GB in a month - no .iso downloads either, plus I was on holiday for a week. Looked at my usage logs from my ISP, and yeah, no spikes, just my regular usage.

Whilst on holiday, my PC stayed on 24/7 (to run our IRC bot among things), and traffic for that period dropped to about 2MB a day (as expected with IM clients running, and all the chat traffic going through).

So.... where are all the ISPs with their investment into our future by way of putting equipment in to service us poor hard done by internet users.

Orcon, Woosh and TelstraClear seem to be the only ones making any real ground...

More accurate speed tests can be completed on MondoSpeed Worldwide Speed Test (http://www.mondospeed.com/). You can choose from a list of more than 40 high speed servers spread all around the world. This server keeps in history all tests results ever. http://www.mondospeed.com/

Please Note Mondospeed was stealing bandwidth at the start using the speedtest.net servers (including my bandwidth using the data files for speedtest.net) Speedtest.net had to get all the speedtest.net servers around the world to ban mondospeed's tests. Yes I am replying to a really old post, but just letting people know what this website (Romania based) was doing and nzdsl.co.nz/speedtest.net are alot more accurate than mondospeeds (as its tests nationally)
