Once again, this time at Whakapapa, I'm getting speeds of less than 2Mbit per sec! Really. I'd post a screen shot of the speed test if I could.

@Yp8ryjw8479T  It's capacity not coverage,

 

Costly to put big capacity on a site that is only used a few months a year

Appreciate the reply thanks.

 

Really, actually its used over xmas/new year, as well as the 3-4 month ski season, and then there are lots of tourists, and all the people at National Park and surrounds.

 

Smacks to me of a triumph of marketing (95%?? coverage of where NZers work and play) over product delivery.

 

I just state for the record that the compeditor has much better coverage, and that  in the last half dozen or more years coverage has been satisfactory, so this is letting the side down.
