FibreMax is the superior broadband performer according to new research.
In the Commerce Commission’s latest Measuring Broadband New Zealand report, Fibre Max download speeds increased from an average of 856 Mbps in the Winter Report to 877 Mbps in the Spring Report.
The Commission says Fibre Max download speeds increased from an average of 856 Mbps in the Winter Report to 877 Mbps in the Spring Report.
Telecommunications Commissioner, Tristan Gilbertson said, “it's great to see Fibre Max customers still getting performance improvements over time with no change in cost – something that seems likely to help cement its position as the fastest growing fibre segment.”
In comparison the average fixed wireless download speed is 37.1 Mbps across the week. This drops to 30.5 Mbps during peak hours. Gilbertson said, “it’s great to see improved performance of fixed wireless, as it can be a cheaper alternative to other technologies like fibre – although it comes with trade-offs in terms of speed and latency that consumers need to consider.”
Commenting on the report, Tuatahi First Fibre Chief Executive John Hanna said, “Fibre is clearly the best broadband option for those who can get it.”
The Measuring Broadband New Zealand report was produced by SamKnows, a world leader in internet performance measurement. Data for the report was collected in June and July.
The report provides independent information on broadband performance across different providers, plans and technologies to help consumers choose the best broadband plan for their homes.
