Live Website Download Comparison Exposes ISPs TrueNet's new focus is on the time taken to download 8 live websites. The smaller ISPs came out on top with a standout performance from Voyager VDSL measured at 2.5 seconds download speed for all websites.  Vodafone ADSL had the biggest discrepancy between test website (6.1s), and live website (2.8s) download speeds. Voyager VDSL also came out on top for best Time of Day performance achieving 98% of their best speed throughout the day. Flip achieved the best ADSL performance maintaining 99% of their best speed.   Chorus states that 51% of connections can be VDSL, while only 8% can be Fibre.  The 8% is chnaging slowly, so if you are unable to connect with Fibre, then VDSL is a great option.

TrueNet Drives ISP Competition in NZ Since TrueNet began operations in 2010, the focus on publishing Speed by Time of Day (ToD) performance has driven NZ ISPs to compete.  This is not the case in the USA, or the UK where similar measurements over a longer period have not resulted in improvements in performance such as those achieved in NZ.   The result of increased competition shows that not only have all major ISPs improved dramatically, but the top 8 in NZ are significantly better than the top 8 in either the UK, or the USA.

Vodafone Cable Speed Matches Fibre A significant improvement in Vodafone Cable file download speeds, and Time of Day performance sees Cable speeds matching high speed Fibre. TrueNet's Live Webpage download tests show Orcon Fibre to be the quickest browsing product. They have held the lead since September 2013.  Over a similar period Snap ADSL Testpage downloads have dropped significantly from best in November to second worst this month. TrueNet introduces regular File Upload tests for the first time with Fibre 100Mb/50Mb showing Upload speeds far superior to any other ISP service.
