A big improvement from when we were on Sky (used to get 1Mbp/s down if I was lucky); changed in March to Infinity and this has been brilliant so far. It has however dropped by nearly 10Mp/s from when we first got it but I think the contention has increased since we were one of the first in the village to get it.

At 6am with no contention and using my own ISPs server as a testing endpoint I give you NZ internet:
Shakes head in disgust.

Yea but bear in mind that that test is to my actual ISPs servers, they decided to host an endpoint themselves to make their scores slightly less abysmal. That means that the raw absoloute maximum speed to my ISP is that, anything out on the internet at all adds more latency and has less bandwidth. Add the time to get through NZs dodgey pile of slow linux box routers before it jumps onto international fibre out via china because its cheaper etc and you start to see how we end up with 350ms of latency or more to the UK.

I remember going from 300bps to 2k and thinking "wow".

I remember being able to shove a telephone handset into a cradle and get 300baud and thinking how cool that was...
