In addition, EQ's 1-year rate is now exceeded by Hubert's at 2.85% average rate..

I believe Vatox is referring to these current rates:

3, 6, 9 months 2.35%
1 year 2.80%
15 months 2.90% (interest compounded and paid at maturity)
2 year 3.01%
27 months 3.05% (interest compounded and paid at maturity)
3 year 3.25%
4 year 3.30%
5 year 3.52%
