Question to Fibre Plus customers :)

Heya guys! I'm thinking about upgrading from our current broadband package to the fibre extra package which boasts up to 76mb download speeds (estimated for us at 56mb) mainly due to the download limit being reached too often on our current package.
Was just wondering, what do you think to it?
Did you get what your estimate said?
Anything else you have to say about it? Cheesy
Thanks guys Smiley

I get a little over my estimate, so currently 63 on an estimate of 56. It's great and I would recommend it.
The only downside is when you visit people and use their broadband it always seems slow Wink

My estimate is 63, and I get 78  (i.e. the maximum).  Grin
While I don't really need the bandwidth allowance,  there's a gratifying feeling in being able to download a 4.3GB iso image (openSUSE) in 9 minutes.... Cheesy
But alas,  I'd have to agree with dvorak's downside!

Ahh sounds good then >Smiley I'm sure I can live with that downside Wink

Be interesting to see what mine will be as well I have an estimate of "downstream line speed of 62.2Mbps "
I am about 100-150m from the boxes.
Roll on the 3rd!
