I have 3meg Chorus broadband and get average speeds of 300-400 kps, admittedly on a private tracker.

Chorus customers can upgrade their broadband package for free now. Only just found this out from their site. The old 1meg package is changed to 3mb, the 3mb is upped to 10 and the old 6mb is now 20mb. I'm on the old 3meg deal and I got a letter saying I could get 20mb for an extra tenner but they failed to tell me that I could upgrade to 10 for nothing! Sneaky feckers!
