* This ISP doesn't provide the data about the average upload speed.
** Upload speeds depend on your location. Chorus and Unison areas will be provided with 10Mbps. Enable and Tuatahi First Fibre areas will receive 20Mbps. 
*** Wireless Nation - 19/4.2Mbps for Endless plan. Pulse Energy - the DSL speeds can vary considerably depending on how far the customer is away from the Copper exchange and other factors such as internal wiring.

† How to understand the Average Speed Check Table:
Download = the average download speed refers to how many megabits of data per second it takes to download data from a server in the form of images, videos, text, files and audio to your device. This includes activities like streaming shows or listening to music on apps.
Upload = the average upload speed refers to how fast you can send information from your computer to another device or server on the internet. This includes sending emails and video calling using apps like Zoom.
If an ISP has provided both an average download and upload speed it will show with a '/' separating the speeds. eg: 2degrees Fibre 100 average speeds are 100/22 (100 = the ave. download speed and 22 = the ave. upload speed).
