Best Broadband Providers for Downloading
Wednesday, December 6, 2017

The best broadband plans for downloading need to deliver on different aspects to streaming and gaming.  If you are going to be downloading or uploading lots of files than your broadband plan should have an unlimited data cap for you will need large amounts of data when you carry out any of these undertakings.  The average New Zealand household now consumes over 173Gb of Broadband Data a month (Chorus Download Stats – October 2017) and if your household is a big streaming household than you are likely to consume even more data than that, especially if there are a number of different devices streaming data.

The most important considerations for downloading other than data caps are speed.  Most broadband providers measure "speed" by bandwidth - the amount of data that your connection can upload or download at any one time.  The most common fibre connection speed in New Zealand is a 100Mbs connection.  This should be able to download 12.5 megabytes of data a second which means it offers plenty of bandwidth to download a large file in a small amount of time.  The higher the speed, the quicker your downloads.  Some broadband providers now offer fibre broadband connections of almost a Gigabit.  This is incredibly fast.  I mean like really, really fast.  

The Broadband Compare Awards in 2017 saw Stuff Fibre come out the winner of the Best Fibre Broadband Provider in NZ and Fibre is widely accepted as being the best technology for downloading as it has the highest capacity to transfer large volumes of data.
