I have FTTP and when I first got it it was brilliant (95 Mbps down load and 35 up) then came months of crap and fights with Westnet/iiNet with speeds of ..05 Mbps at peak times due to congestion. Back to great speeds now. The problem is that the the nbn is not national. The isps still have to get the signal to a POI ( point of intersection) before the signal is actually on the nbn and that relies on the same old infrastructure. The politicians had a hand in this as well originally there were going to be about 50 pois but it was cheaper to put in about 200 and make the isps get the signal to them.

My test on ADSL cam up with 8.98 down, 0.61 up, 39ms latency. My problem is the home phone has been blinking 'in use' since December. Told telstra in Dec and still haven't had a reply. Which reminds me, off to notify ombudsman. Again.

Something i noticed out here we would get noise on the phone line ,copper then later the internet would go maybe a month later .So now if we get noise on the line we call them and say its bad can not hear anyone [lie] lol ,Then they come and fix line before it does quit . Interesting to see the scope they use you can see the noise of other connections and he said the fault noise was 250 mts away went up the street came back 10 mins later all fixed .

I was connected FTTN last November. With Telescum and paying for a boost to 50mbps, get 49 if I test a 2am on a Monday night. Actually 80% of the time its good. When its poor it is back to slower than ADSL2.

I have a 3g/4g Multi Wan Router which you plug in a usb adapter for it to work, the trick is to use a usb extension lead with the adapter on the end near the window to get a better signal. It is my backup in case of NBN going down and has been used once already when they shut down my service for 2 weeks to move the phone from VOIP to the NBN dedicated phone socket which Telstra let you use but not Optus, they still have to use VOIP if they want a land line. By the way I have fiber to the premises with 25/5 speed.

First major FTTN NBN test over last week as we have had a deluge of rain. Verdict - fail. Speeds at times back to slow ADSL. On Friday night was constantly buffering a 0.7GB Poxtel stream.

Outside peak and in ideal weather it works well, but this area is prone to the occasional flash flood.

Interesting development where I live.

NBN recently became available to my area. Before this I could get download speeds on ADSL2 of up to 1.7mb/s, which was easily enough to stream full HD. It NEVER cut out and was highly reliable, no issues at all.

Now since the NBN became available this same adsl2 service has become in all honesty completely useless. I've had better service in remote areas of third world countries and it was free.

I reckon the internet cuts out over 20 times a day now, this isn't even an exaggeration. It has gotten to the point where it cuts in and out every 10-30 minutes it seems. During the time it does work I can't even stream 480p anymore. Sometimes it is slower than dialup I reckon, not even kidding. Maybe 5-10% out of a day can I stream HD anymore. We've already had one router crap itself, I'd hedge my bets as a direct result.

I thought maybe it was just us, a dodgy connection somewhere...nope I know of 5 other people already just asking a few people who have the exact same issues.

Why are they even bothering to allow ADSL2 to continue for 18 months or whetever it is (can someone correct me here if necessary), I'm wondering whether they're just trying to force people to switch. We will obviously eventually switch, but FFS I'm not hearing many positives about the NBN in this area either which is hardly encouraging. It's all one big joke.

Yes I think they may be trying to force people to switch. My adsl has been up and down for a few weeks now also.They tried to blame my line filter first.

Which has been working efficiently for some years I'm guessing CF, while NBN is "supposed" to be available here we are not going there, rather slow ADSL than all the NBN problems one reads of.

Maybe in a couple of years.

Yeah it was.I put a new one in just in case and it fixed nothing. Plenty of people locally are slamming telstra at the moment for slow adsl 2.

We have had NBN FTTP with Internode since January 2015. To date it has worked faultlessly. We are on the 25/5 plan with typical speeds of 22-24Mbit down and 4.5-4.7Mbit up. This is very consistent even in peak periods. This is ample speed for our needs. My wife can be watching Netflix, our son playing online games and me browsing the web simultaneously with no perceptible degradation.

Prior to the NBN we had ADSL2 also with Internode. We had our share of line faults causing dropouts and speed reductions but overall we were getting 4-5Mbits down 99.9% of the time. Ironically a few weeks prior to the NBN we had a line fault which turned out to be corroded connections in the pit on our footpath. After this was fixed we had the fastest ADSL speed we had ever had, 6Mbits.

OOKLA speed test just now, ADSL Telstra landline -

Download 0.94 Mbps, Upload 0.31 Mbps.

Been 1/3rd that speed over the years, but at least it works
most of the time.

Did that speed test as finally we have gone about 12 hours back to 'normal' download speeds without dropouts.

15ms ping
12.12Mbps download
0.85Mbps upload

Telstra ADSL2

Can't find an explantion as to why it was so dodgy the last few weeks, hopefully stabilises now.

Our ADSL has crashed in the last 4 days. Just run the test, 1.89 down 0.07 up and latency 291. When I last posted in early March it was comfortably over 5 and recently observed a 6 download speed but for 4 days just [censored]. Coincidentally we are getting bombarded with NBN ads in the mailbox.

Same thing happened in Bundaberg before the roll out. Funny that.

I'll just wait until Spacex has its satellite constellation up and the NBN is rendered obsolete.

Not sure what ADSL speeds have to do with this thread as it will be all replaced by the NBN. The only issue I have with the NBN is FTTN at it is still using copper.

Satellite is not the answer...talk to anyone on Skymuster already..I have Foxtel and Vast for free to air TV...absolute rubbish during the wet season up here...I can tell when a heavy shower is going to hit well before I hear it..
