November saw little change to rankings of browsing performance since our last report on 7th November. TelstraClear Cable remains the best technology. For ADSL (the technology that 80% of New Zealanders must use) Telecom & Orcon remain the best performers. They have now been joined by Slingshot which has an almost identical median download time.
TrueNet has operated its volunteer based testing service since the beginning of July 2010. The chart shows the average volunteers' speed to download a small 300KB file at 8pm each day compared with uploading the same file.
The 16th August shows an interesting change in speed.
Volunteers in this chart include some with cable, some on wireless and some who have chosen slow DSL speeds. They are however dominated by unlimited speed ADSL connections.
