Speed - September 2015

Download Speed Performance on Fibre

TrueNet uses 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.

International Throughput - September 2015

International Speed Performance

TrueNet regularly measures the speed between servers in Sydney and Dallas and each panelist's probe by downloading a 1MB file, ensuring the file is not held in New Zealand (cached).

The results reported show the average of probes during the evening busy period of 8pm to 10pm, when congestion is likely to be observed. "Other ISPs" respresents a number of ISPs with insufficient panelists to allow reporting individually.

Upload - September 2015

File Upload Speed on Fibre

Upload speed s 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.

Websites - September 2015

Live Webpage Performance

TrueNet measures the time taken to download a number of websites in NZ, Australia and the USA.  

These charts show the comparison of these downloads.  Each vertical bar represents the spread of the results between the median of maximums and the median of minimums, with the average of medians for each group of panelists shown as a darker line across each bar

NZ Latency - September 2015

NZ Latency July to September 2015 (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.
