Hi, I got this for London:-



and this is for Auckland:-




My service is an alleged 8 Meg with no limits - aside from the usual 'fair use' policy. Overall, its quite good, but as per anyone else, I'm trying to 'negotiate' the cost downwards to reflect what new customers pay.

But the server chosen isn't ~3000km from Adelaide. The distance reflects how far your ISP server is from the selected SpeedTest server, not how far the user is from the server. When Comcast was upgrading their IL servers, at that point SpeedTest said my closest server was in Houston, TX!

Local network traffic may have influenced these results, but they are nevertheless impressive:


I'm very happy with my ISP, state-of-the-art technology, competent support and quite cheap.
No limits at all.

Here’s what I came up with and it is correct and what I pay for. From Lynchburg VA but I get mine from Net Zero because Verizon is useless they don't allow servers and their service is terrible so I get mine from Net Zero for 29.00 USD a month and Net Zero rents from Verizon.



Here is mine from my home in Lynchburg VA to Christchurch NZ so there is a drop at 8750 miles.

EDIT: Wait! I can do better...
