    I'll only be using the Netcomm router Slingshot gives me if my Asus AC66U can't handle the Gigabit speed.

    I found some settings for the AC68U on another site that should stop that from being a problem though.

    Got switched over this morning. I seem to max out around 921-940Mbps.

    Yea that's pretty much what you should expect.

    I don't think I ever got more than that range nor anyone else I know with it

    $99 a month $115 the first month because of the $15 upgrade fee.

    Depends in part on your RSP.

    would like to see nz being progressive and offering 2.5 gigabit. but hey, gigabit isn't too bad at least.

    Problem with that is 99% of people dont have the network infrastructure for such speeds. So unless you've got a lot of users its just going to be wast

    make that 99.9999%

    i don't really see the point of 2.5/5G ethernet when 10G is ubiquitous. why **** around with a stop gap? all for the sake of PoE and reusing ancient cabling? i don't get it.

    We're unlikely to see plans faster than 1G any time soon not because it isn't possible (it is) but because there isn't a need or demand for it.

    I Imagine this is isn't a common speed test result to expect to see but damn if it isn't cool.

    I tested again and it seems to have gone back down. Strange. Maybe Chorus are testing something? Or just a good server at the right moment?

    Why? 10Gbps GPON was already being tested up north last year.It's on the cards for a 2020 rollout iirc. I know someone who was getting 8.9Gbps download speeds off it.

    Wonder what they are doing. I already have a gigabit plan and canít fault it really. Anyone else get this?

    Maybe some network optimsation? They mention its designed to make it go faster. Maybe ask over @ the slingshot forum on Geekzone. I also have Gigabit with slingshot but haven't received that email.

    I don't have that email either.

    I just got hooked up to Gigabit with them last Wednesday (new fibre install). Haven't been able to get over 200Mbps down and about 370Mbps up so far on a wired connection (most of the time it is under 150Mbps).

    Their NF18 router is flaky also (they know that and are working on it with Netcomm). They wiped my first bill at least.

    Never trust an ISP provided router. I kept mine as they won't troubleshoot issues if you don't have it plugged in. But am using a Unifi Secure Gateway and can speedtest at 900/450 fairly consistently. Can max the connection out too with locally cached things like steam + uplay

    I don't. I've never even had an ISP one before and only used it for the initial setup, as it is preconfigured - because as you know they don't support third party routers.

    I have my Asus one plugged in now and the speeds are no better, and I've seen other people with this router on Slingshot pull the expected speeds.

    I'm also on a crappy old backup PC with a very slow mechanical drive that isn't even able to even write at the speed the connection should be doing. So I'll wait till I build my new PC (when insurance company pays me out) before escalating it to their tier two support.

    Possibly moving your line from one handover to another, to alleviate potential congestion.

    9 times out of 10 gigabit speed troubles are caused by CPE.

    Yeah I do along with the international calling. Looks like the same deal but with the extras I need.

    So Slingshot is decent?
    Our Vodafone VDSL contract is out so we're looking to upgrade to fibre now it's here.
    They have a 50% off for 6 months from broadbandcompare.co.nz that seems like the cheapest gigabit plan.
    Anything else I should be looking at?

    Get VOIP from someone like 2talk, it's cheap and far more portable.
