File Upload Speed on Fibre

Upload speed is important to users sending large amounts of data through the internet, or loading files to the Cloud.  TrueNet's upload test sends a 1MB file to our Wellington server. Historically, upstream traffic has largely been free of contention, but has been changing as Internet usage grows.

For comparison with Singapore including pricing, download, upload and latency performances.

Live Webpage Performance

TrueNet measures the download size and average time taken to download a selection of Webpages in NZ, Australia and the USA.

These charts show the comparison of average download speeds of a selection of Webpages from the three countries, presented as averages by Time of Day. The ISP results include ISP Fibre or Cable services with advertised speed of 100Mb/s or greater.

These pages are intended to compare NZ with Singapore, but unfortunately the IDA (Singapore regulator) do not report website download times.

Download Speed Performance on Fibre

TrueNet typically takes the best of a pair of Auckland and Wellington download tests to calculate the median NZ results by hour over the month for each monitored connection. We take the average of all median results with each ISP for each hour.  

For comparison with Singapore including pricing, download, upload and latency performances.  NB Singapore only compares fibre service speeds of 200Mb/s and greater.

International Speed Performance

TrueNet regularly measures the speed between a server in Sydney  and each panelist's probe by downloading a 2MB file, ensuring the file is not held in New Zealand (cached).

The results reported show the Time of Day performance of each named ISP, as a percentage of best hour NZ speed. Only service speeds of 100Mb/s or greater are included in the analysis.

Latency on Fibre

Latency is the measurement of how long it takes one packet to be sent to one of our test servers in Auckland (APE) or Wellington (WIX), and then returned back to you. This can effectively be thought of as the responsiveness of the connection between your home and our servers on the Internet.

For comparison with Singapore including pricing, download, upload and latency performances.

International Latency Measurements

Latency is the measurement of how long it takes a packet to be sent to one of our test servers  and then returned back to you. This can effectively be thought of as the responsiveness of the connection between your home and TrueNet servers on the Internet. International latency measurements are made to Sydney, Melbourne, Dallas USA, and England.

Latency by Time of Day does not vary at present from any of our test regions for any ISP so we have not published results.  The variation of results at 9pm is seen below.

Latency of Sydney Gaming Servers over Fibre

Latency is the measurement of how long it takes one packet to be sent to a server and then returned back to you. This can effectively be thought of as the responsiveness of the connection between your home and our servers on the Internet. Latency of 5 popular games are provided on this page.

Video Test - Buffering Events

TrueNet measures the number of buffer events that occur in our standard video test. Buffer events are when when the video stream appears to stop, while waiting for additional data.
