We joined the 21st century after a long and protracted process that started 4 years ago. NBN Co repeatedly denied I could get connected until I sent them photos of the cable layers putting fibre optic cable in and then 4 weeks ago said I couldn't be connected for at least another 18 months. Upshot was 2 weeks ago we got an email from Telstra to say we could but it was fibre to the node and not fibre to the premises. Meh what ever at least we are connected.

So last Tuesday we had the switch over from ADSL2+ to FTTN and had nothing but issues. seeds dropped from 24mbps to 230kps between 2.00pm to 1.00am every day. then the modem would randomly just drop the connection completely without warning and stay offline for 7 to 12 hours rejoining for 15 minutes and then dropping out again. So 2 hours of phone calls finally resulted in NBN Co sending out a tech this morning who found the following issues.
1) We had 2 phone extensions 1 in a bedroom and another in the office. These have to be physically removed as the incoming signal splits between the 3 connection even if only 1 has a modem connected.
2) Some fumble fingered fwit borked the jumpering at the node with some wiring being crossed and causing a loop back (which was why it was constantly dropping out) but that's now fixed and hopefully we don't have anymore issues.
So to say it was a painless process was an utter lie from Telstra.
The initial setup of the F@st 5355 modem via the included picture install guide was pretty straight forward but they don't include the modem password which I guessed was either password, nothing or admin. Admin (all lower case letters) was the right one. The wireless setup was easy and connecting our old but still functional wireless Telstra phone went without a hitch. Please be aware that Telstra do not supply a manual for the modem and they don't have one on line either. Which is a pain in the bum when you want to so things like enabling static IP's bridging etc.

So we signed up for the speed boost which is supposed to be 100mpbs download and 40mpbs upload. In reality they don't guaranty any speeds due to shonky back end equipment courtesy of various political parties mucking with the technology. Yes Labor and Lib/Nat's have fingers in the pie and delivered something but not what should have been. Supposedly this will improve in the next 12 to 18 months as better equipment is rolled out.

Pros and cons
Pros when its working is great for watching Netflix, gaming and of not too many people are using it at home at the same time we get a reasonable quality of service.

Cons
Biggest 1 is when you loose connectivity/power you lose you landline phone. (With the problems we had over the last 5 days we had 9 messages saying various doctors etc couldn't contact us but for some reason didn't bother ringing us on our mobile phones), all sorted now.


Telstra Speed Test

So line testing gives me a reading of 24.2mpbs download and 4.7mpbs upload with less than 1% packet loss and 26ms latency which is fine for most online gaming. Am I happy with what I ended up with? Too early to tell as I haven't had a decent amount of time to reach a proper conclusion but with these miniscule speeds it will impact on watching say 4000k TV (we don't have one . . . yet) but for normal surfing, watching YouTube and a bit of gaming its fine so far.
Stay tuned for more developments.

The NBN has been pretty good for my area which, despite being urban, used to have terrible internet.

Dapto and surrounds was one of the first places in Australia to get NBN so I think it has been around for about 2 maybe even 3 years now, but my household only just got it fairly recently. It is about 65mbps download according my mobile phone which is very nice and we can easily watch youtube at 1080p without an issue and do online gaming as well. But we have had a few problems lately with a faulty router (that's not the NBN's fault) and also random network outages. Old ADSL internet ran at about 11mbps. The optus wireless broadband dial up used to be about 1mbps very early in the morning (2 or 3am) but usually it was between 250 and 500kbps which was a nightmare.

I'm on FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) in Townsville and constantly get speeds close to the 100/40 I'm paying Telstra for.

SBT, if you're only getting 25/5 and paying for 100/40, I'd ask Telstra to remove the speed boost and just pay for 25/5.

To me it looks like the plan is 25 down 5 up because of the latency. If you were on the 100 down 40 up and getting those speeds you would have a lot higher latency.

I am getting 18-19ms latency on my 100/40 connection, I live in the same city that SBT does using the same provider.

I get 19ms from Telstra FTTP in Cranbrook, FTTN still uses copper from the node to the premises terminating at a VDSL modem. FTTN will get a bit higher latency than FTTP because of the copper and my old ADSL latency used to be over 60ms as far as I can remember from the same premises.

As far as I can find out the difference in ping between FTTN and FTTP is about 5ms but it is also dependent how far from the node you are and how good the copper connection is. The ping is also worse the further you are from your ISP server, some people in capital cities can get 1ms ping from FTTP.

I loved it (only joking) that we got a letter saying we can connect to the NBN.

WTF? Telstra couldn't maintain a simple landline when we had it connected when we had a phone at the house, let alone having dial up speeds for internet and constantly dropping out.

Anyways, looking at what they were saying we can get connected to, was a "fixed wireless" connection. Knowing where that particular tower is to me is a very good direct line of sight, but the price? Nothing under $60 per month.

For the amount of internet I use, it is not worth the bother, as I get 1GB with my mobile, also a 2nd pre-paid sim card primarily just for data when in very remote locations, and have just a prepaid mobile wireless device at home which and I can take the device wherever I want. I don't need downloads to watch movies or anything else. Just for the occasional web browsing, and if I need to download stuff, work is a good place to do it - costs nothing!!

Being connected to the internet is not death or life to me, as I have plenty to do in life let alone doing nothing.

But I have a friend who does work with the NBNCo, and he says we are not going to experience any good speeds Australia wide until all the old existing exchanges have been unplugged. Otherwise, the network will get bottled necked and eventually crash it if they ramped it up to full speed, and at the moment, most places are only running at 25% speed capacity until the old systems have been disconnected. After that, we should then see a marked improvement on connection speeds throughout the country.

Yea from what I have read some people on fixed wireless which is capable of 25/5Mbps are getting worse performance than their ADSL they had before it. Even FTTN is a better choice because what people don't realize is wireless is affected by bandwidth overload, electrical interference and distance from the tower. But if that is all you are offered you might be better of staying with your mobile broadband.

Yea I was lucky enough to get FTTP in Cranbrook and when NBN offer 1Gbps speeds at least I will have the choice to have it or not. But if you have a choice between FTTN and wireless the FTTN would be better as long as your copper connection was good. Don't forget ADSL will be turned off in areas that are NBN ready, I think the time frame is 18 months.

I just got my internet reconnected today after moving house nearly two weeks ago and I have just done that speed test that SBT put up. Knowing that I have slow internet generally, but how do these figures stack up.
Download speed 0.65 Mbps
Upload speed 0.05 Mbps
Latency 287 ms

The problem is that much of the copper is in poor condition. Something telstra themselves made a lot of noise about until the fttp was scrapped. Suddenly it was in perfect condition and worth $11 Billion.

Yep,no one is keeping ADSL (eventually). We have adjusted to ADSL after moving from the city and cable broadband. It took two months to get it to stop dropping out constantly. Pretty stable now. No faith in NBN changeover not being a huge drama but told we have no choice to stay with ADSL. Just used the link SBT supplied and got 5.66 down and 0.85 upload.

I just need radar and satellite loops to load, that's all. smile

I usually keep on our internet connection we have at work from time to time, mainly because we have external offices that connect to our server where we are, also we have IP phones as well.

We have a 10/10Mbps configuration with 4 x ADSL2 lines to our office. Generally it is not too bad, but we have to sacrifice our download speed to have a high steady upload speed.

I have just checked with my phone on both sim cards and have the following results

TPG (100% Reception)- 3.45/4.07 Mbps
Telstra (40% Reception)- 12.05/12.20 Mbps (even though at the very end it resulted in 24.04Mbps - but I just look at the average)

As you can see, the air is just as good if not better then 4 copper lines.

Is that ADSL because that is about 5 times faster than dial up.

Yes.

Forgot to mention that at the first attempt at the speed test it timed out on me!!! eek

Make sure you have a splitter on the phone line where the phone and ADSL are connected and ring your ISP and they should do a line test to check for a bad connection.

SBT I read a report from 2014 users of the FTTN network will not receive speed guarantees beyond 25 Mbps down and 1 Mbps up - similar to the maximum performance under ideal line conditions of today's ADSL2+ service.

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.

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..

One sure sign that the FTTN part of NBN is crap?

Answer:
NBN Co is spending millions in advertising promoting it. TV, Newspapers, Internet.

As with much of politics today it is about getting the gullible sections of the public to change their "perception". It is not the product that is the problem, it is the perception.

These days it is all about perception with the politicians, corporation and government agency CEO's. Beware of words like "solution", "world leading", global","caring","personal"
