Speedtest.net Sydney vs Auckland NZ

Post by Old Flame » Sun Dec 06, 2009 10:18 pm

It's not really an issue, I am interested more than anything why I would get 12mbit to Auckland NZ when I only get 8.5 to 9mbit to Sydney which is only 50 miles away. Of course the ping times to Auckland are higher.

I get similar discrepancies, must be the optusnet server.
Try the server at Tuggerah, you will get a better speed than the Sydney one
