Moving from old provider to Orcon ADSL 2 here at McGovern
Moving to Orcon ADSL 2
This is just by way of a note to say normal service will be resumed on this blog once we have sorted out the move to the Orcon Platinum Business plan, here at McGovern.
Things are looking okay for Internet - with some lovely test speeds - but given we run our own Exchange server for email, plus a bunch of test sites, and some development projects, it has not been totally painless. But I think it is now stable and sorted!
Thanks Orcon , especially Paul and Gergor, for holding our hand - and thanks to our local It support people, and Jason, at WorldNZ.
Speed Test - Rocking!
Using Speedtest.net at 3:45pm - i.e afternoon I logged a DSL test for both Auckland and London
Auckland to Auckland : 20.60Mb/s down and 0.86Mb/s down
London/Auckland : 9.2 Mb/s down 0.46 Mb/s
Small - fast - smart - niche NZ ?
Rocking on the download. Very good indeed. Orcon should be proud of that!
But it would be good to see a bit of upside on the upload? But that's NZ for you. We just don't seem to think the up-path is that important. Given our ambitions for small - fast - smart and niche- maybe its time we changed that!
