Yes, they are overcrowded, but not by Optus. They are piggybacked by Telstra's techs.

Node is on my nature strip, but I'd say Probably 120m of line from the box to my phone. I'm the closest house smile

So it's been exactly a week since I've been connected to FTTN with Aussie Broadband's 50Mbps/20Mbps plan, and have 0 complaints so far. I reach the advertised speeds even at peak time and no dropouts to speak of yet either. Only early days but positive signs so far considering I am 400m from the node, about 450m from the pillar.

Do you run it via wi-fi or hard wired with ethernet cable?

I find Ethernet more stable and faster..

All of my desktop devices are connected using Ethernet cables running to the router. We use wifi for our phones only.

Surprisingly quite happy with the upgrade to the NBN so far though despite just a few dropouts which have occurred later in the evening (though not for a good week or more now). No other complaints really...still get the advertised speeds night and day and no sign of congestion at all through my provider as yet. I honestly expected a hell of a lot worse than this...I guess I sort of won the lottery so far anyway.
