Here's another from a Transact/iinet FTTH connection, over wifi (I was
the only one online) at 8:22 yesterday morning. It is a 12megabit/s
connection, so we're approaching the theoretical maximum equivalent of
1.5 megabytes/s. There have been several instances where the actual
rate has been much less, the absolute worst case being in the order of
10s of bytes per second.
