Fibre Technology Shows Superior Speed
Fibre Speed results are consistently faster than other access technologies although, for the first time, congestion is apparent on the 100Mb/s service for Orcon and Snap.
Testpage download times show Cable and Fibre results to be faster than DSL, but the Cable 100Mb/s service has considerable variation in average speed.
Latency is generally better with smaller ISPs and faster access technologies.
Domain Name Server (DNS) response times show a trending result with Fibre ahead of the rest, although one ISP can deliver DNS over ADSL with the same performance as Fibre.
