What speed Broadband will I be able to get?

Last Updated: 2nd of September, 2013

Currently our Fibre speed is 30Mbps down / 6Mbps up.  Unlike other Internet connections such as DSL, the connection between your home and the local exchange has a set speed allocated per customer. This means that there is much lower chance for congestion and the speeds experienced will be much higher.

With any data connection the speed you achieve is affected by a lot of different elements. With Fibre the speed between your home and the local exchange is now much faster and 'cleaner', with little congestion and higher capacity at much longer distances. Speeds are still affected by a range of other aspects such as moving the data around New Zealand, International gateways, upstream providers - even the server that is hosting the content you are downloading
