Broadband Speeds Ahead With New Technology

2013-02-04

TrueNet's research uncovers the influence that new technology has on fixed line broadband in New Zealand with average speeds rising to a 6.5% increase on the same time last year.

The average peak connection speed of TrueNet’s fixed line probes in January 2013 was measured at 11.5Mbps. This compares favourably with the average 2012 speed of 10.8Mbps.
