What is your NBN speedtest result to USA?

My Vodafone NBN 50/20 plan is very slow downloading US-specific content (content not cached in Aus). The download speed I get from this US speedtest is 8-9Mbps. The pipe size ISPs purchase for overseas traffic (transit traffic which is much more costly than local peer traffic) contributes to the difference in the cost of plans and quality of service we pay for.

To compare ISPs I would be interested in your results from the US speedtest. Please set the city to Los Angeles. Could you kindly specify your - ISP, plan speed, result (down/up)

Using my example:
Vodafone, 50/20, 8/15 (yes upload is much faster)

Thanks

        so they are really on 250/25 albeit temporarily (thus "50/20 plan")
        Thanks for your reply re use of Fusion.

          I didn't even know this was a thing. Havent checked my internet speed for so long - Was very surprised to see the speeds.

          At least now I know its not a forever thing.

        iiNet gave lots of customers a free 6 month upgrade to NBN Superfast (250/25).
        I'm the same, on a 50/20 plan, but told by iiNet since Feb that I'm on 250/25 for 6 months for free. It's great.

      Is Vodafone wifi NBN?

    •  

      I'm with Vodafone and my result is different:
      23.8, 6.9

      City is LA as requested by OP.

      Now if I run a regular speedtest via Google and the city is Sydney I get:
      28.7, 6.78

      As you can see, results don't show what OP claims.

      I'm no fan of Vodafone either.

      Hmm. You're not going to get a faster pings to Google's or Cloudflare's resolver, comparing to your local ISP's, which is usually only 2-3 hops away from your router. However you may get a faster domain name resolution, which means your browser may connect to the websites faster from a cold local cache, which means the images may load faster.

    I've mentioned before that I have had issues connecting to LA, but Superloop says the problem is in LA, not in the Superloop route. So, here it is again:
