They do not just mention speed, but a variety of performance indicators.

My home connection in Wellington is with Ihug, now Vodafone. They are third lowest in Wellington and I do have to say since they were taken over I have found the performance disappointing. I love their mobile products, but may look at moving my home connection at some stage.
