ISPs Show Superior Speed in the New Year
Since January 2013, TrueNet's Time of Day speed comparisons across all ISPs have improved markedly - from 90% of maximum speed, to over 95% by January 2014.
In TrueNet's International Test webpage download comparison, Vodafone Cable maintains its top spot closely followed by Orcon Fibre.
Sample ADSL to VDSL Upgrade Experiences
TrueNet compares before and after experience of almost 50 volunteer connection upgrades from ADSL to VDSL over the last 2 years.
Research shows that Telecom customers are more likely to experience significant improvements to the speed of their Broadband on conversion from ADSL to VDSL.
A change to VDSL, from a standard ADSL broadband connection, is most likely to be extremely successful, although for a few it fails to deliver.
Size of ADSL to VDSL improvement:
File Download speed = 79%
File Upload speed = 672%
Webpage download time = 72%
Vodafone Mobile Broadband Outperforms in 2013
A dramatic improvement in performance by Vodafone was shown in mobile broadband speed tests measured by TrueNet between 2012 and 2013.
Where Telecom showed superior performance in 2012, by the end of 2013 Vodafone has overtaken its competitors and now leads in Mobile broadband performance.
