Heh. Our upload is certainly flash, but our previous Orcon DSL connection peaked at around 20Mb/s down also.
Our Orcon DSL at work is pretty similar to yours though, again thanks to being too far from the exchange. I wouldn't move house at all these days without trying to ascertain what kind of connection speed I would get. SUCKS.
Your numbers are way outside the average though aren't they? It's odd to be saying those are shitty numbers, NZ has a rep for pretty crap internet over all but you see average download and upload speeds of say, the States, and they aren't that much higher than The Maestros...
Would be interesting to see more comprehensive data with distributions etc of NZ and various other countries, also to see if we still deserve our rep.
Sure, 20Mb/s is at the very top of the scale. Out of all the people I know with broadband though, only a small handful have 5mb/s or below, and all because of their extreme distance from the exchange - the bulk sit at 7-10MB/s or above. Anecdotal but hey....fact is, 3Mb/s or below is unacceptable in the modern world - as Maestro's moving house sentiment expresses.
Thankfully, such data is trivially obtained. While there is a bunch of comprehensive research globally, most heavy research goes into areas beyond just raw download speeds. Lets keep it simple.
I refer to this because it's probably the most comprehensive and up to date raw data.
NZ clocks in 44th with a residential average of 6.29Mb/s - twice Maestros speed. The US clocks in 25th with 10.38Mb/s.
NZ's internet problems are more to do with high price, poor download caps and limited available international bandwidth, rather than inherent raw download speed issues.
Somewhat related: it's unfair to compare with the traditional broadband heavyweights like South Korea, Sweden and Japan, because they built up their ultra high speed broadband around vastly bigger population densities, intensive rollouts, and the fact that they are monocultural societies whos language is only spoken within their borders, creating massive domestic demand compared to english speaking nations.
A bunch of the other nations at the top of the list rank highly because of how new their infrastructure is and what low penetration they have - i.e. not much of the population has internet access, but those that do have very high speeds.
That's cos there are 2 . . In the address line gummi, something that my ff add on doesn't mind. Don't ask how the extra . Got there but I suspect legacy punctuation from new page prompt in this opera mini app browser.

Jesus, even when you DO link you manage to fuck it up.
Instead of ranting on.. just edit the URL so its in a valid format.
