Monday, September 11, 2017

All NZ Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are able to deliver similar speeds for technology, but the difference that Truenet report is how fast each service download a range of popular websites in NZ and overseas.  Speeds vary massively throughout New Zealand with different internet service providers delivering very different levels of speed performance.

If you are on a copper connection, then the Voyager VDSL service is actually slower for NZ surfing speeds than some ADSL speeds.  Similarly with International surfing speeds, but this time it is Slingshot VDSL that is slower than some ADSL speeds.

Speed is obviously importnat, but do you get what you pay for?  Let’s not forget about prices.  If your ADSL connection is costing you the earth why would you take it?  The table below simply shows you speed results and prices for the major NZ internet providers that are available on Truenet report.
