A lottery winner !

My FTTN node is only 250m away, so I can get decent speeds most of the time, but some evenings it is slow still.

My "pet hate" is the argument 5G will make it all obsolete, yes and I sure the Telcos will love that. it may truly be fast, but $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ expensive for business, streaming, home, etc.

Just did a test on speedtest.net and got 16.32/0.92 Mbps. Will do comparison.

I would delay it as long as possible if I were you. I get 12 on my adsl 2. The cheapest NBN offer is just 15mbps on the email I got. Why would I bother?

Just did a speed test. On adsl my download is 2.96 upload 0.56. I am having a good day. This time last year download was 0.19.

Our only nbn available is via satellite. Very costly. Not reliable either. Our tele comes via satellite and breaks up often. If there is any rain around out it goes.

Thank god I don't have to rely on it for my life.

Did I mention the other day about the waste of public money building the tower in our area?

Seems we are not alone.

Yes I will wait and see if they can guarantee me the evening speeds on the next plan up (44 mpbs) and limitless download. It is only $5.00 a month more than the ADSL plan I am on now and they throw in Netflix, Stan and Fetch (iinet).

The plans from iinet look like good value to me RF. I am paying $75 now with telstra for 200 gig on adsl 2 which they very conveniently doubled from 100 gig about 5 minutes before my 2 year contract was up. Funny that.

Been with ABB for 6 months, very nice to talk to Aussie speaking Aussie at a normal rate, can even hear them.
Very Helpful , Miss Telstra - not once yet.

ABB - VOIP phone, covers all Interstate,Local & Mobile calls + 25Gb @ 12. $50 / month per NBN landline.

Almost same plan with Telstra ADSL per landline was $130/month.

July 20th here I believe. Been wanting to ditch Telstra since we got here to be honest. My mobile is with Virgin and they have been very good. Home phone will get binned if we go to NBN. Simply not needed.

I went with TPG just after new year. We are being booted off copper in July. (18 mnths is up). NBN50 unlimited for $69.95 plus an extra $10 for the free local / national & mobile calls. My old landline number was ported over to the NBN Voip.
Touch wood,- not one problem yet, and it's great not having to pay Tel$tra for the landline rental just so TPG could put the ADSL 2+ over it.

Thanks samb, good to know. Yeah, their customer service was one of the reasons for going with them. The other is that they offer good speeds internationally as well compared to some of the others.
