I'd just like to know what kind of speeds to expect if I upgrade to the home fibre package. Currently on WiMAX up to 3Mb with ZOL and very happy as I'm seeing 3Mb more than 90% of the time. I was wondering if the fibre was the same with that kind of consistency... Anyone? Results from a few speed tests would be greatly appreciated.

Fibre is much faster & stable compared to Wimax. The Speed results you are getting are most probably not accurate ,if Zol gave you the speed test site. Find a different site to measure your speed. Speed on the fibre depends on what & when you are downloading. Torrents are shaped, so the speed is controlled normally from 8-00 to 17-00.
Don't be fooled by the sales gimmick "up to 10mbps".... Its is UP TO....which means from 0 -10mbps......there is no guaranteed speed....
But in short I had  Wimax & now Fibre. Comparison: Wimax is like Mickey Mouse compared to Fibre.
