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"

So apparently the part of our street which is still on ADSL 2 will be without a working landline and internet for up to 3 months. It goes like this:

- December 2016 - Had the street ripped up by a mob called Civil Engineering to renew water pipes. Landline & internet stopped working. Called ISP, Telstra tech came to fix, but experienced frequent droppouts since

March 2017 - Internet and landline suddenly stopped working altogether. Suspected it was related to the above. Telstra tech came out and fixed it again

Today - No landline or internet since Monday. Telstra tech came out, however this guy was more helpful than the others. He confessed the old copper line running through this part of the street is old and corroded and there's no spares left. Apparently can take up to 3 months for Telstra to get off their useless asses and replace it. While the incident started after Civil Engineering rolled through the street, from the sounds of it, this was going to happen sooner rather than later anyway given the degradation of the infrastructure.

And you wonder why we wanted to get off the old copper network.

So angry right now, to the people who still endorse this failed NBN.co project to the idiots in government who set out to destroy the old fibre implementation of the NBN. Thanks a lot for ruining it for everyone else.

My daughter has just moved into a new place and has discovered she has no internet. That may be acceptable in Antarctica but surely not in SYDNEY !!!!

Yep Mega, it is a sick joke and these morons had the nerve to attack Labor over it.

Wrong, the coalition thinks that copper was worth $11 billion of tax payers money.

There never make a mistake.

Tell me about it. Seeing stuff like this makes me sick: https://delimiter.com.au/2012/05/01/worst-of-the-worst-photos-of-australias-copper-network/

It's disgusting and unforgivable. But for some reason the government doesn't cop anywhere near as much flak as it should for such an atrocity.

I wonder what will happen when 1 Gigabit speed become commonplace and FTTN customers will be left in the cyber dust.

I couldn't believe my eyes. I would click a page and it opened before I had time to make a cup of coffee. I am use to having at least half an hour reading the news headlines a morning. It only took me a matter of minutes. I am sure I could adjust to fast internet. grin

Proceed with caution BB, the sheer speed of events could be mind boggling, if it was to happen here the rush into the 21st century could take us years to recover. grin

Just an update...driving home saw a Telstra van parked up the road, one Telstra guy located at one pit and another guy at another. According to them, our problem should be fixed within the week but we'll see. They have to dig up part of the street and replace the copper cable which is corroded. He laughed when we told him the Telstra contractor that came out a few days ago said it'd be 3 months, but we'll see.

btw - http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Busi..._List?id=EN0246 - spread it around.

yeah it's too late I know but it's better than doing nothing i suppose.

I am on Telstra FTTP 25 down, 5 up in Townsville and consistently get around.....

PING

DOWNLOAD
23.89 Mbps
UPLOAD
4.81 Mbps

And also these results are taken while three other adults in my house are using the internet, and it looks like I will be part of the 22% of Australians who will be fortunate enough to have FTTP. Something needs to be done to ensure the other 78% of Australians have similar results.

The daily criticism of this joke of a broadband network speaks for itself. Clearly you didn't read the post Redwatch made correctly Samboz. He said fttp. That was signed off under Labor wink

It is this government's fttn that is causing all the issues. Hence why there are calls for a national enquiry. The Coalition government you love so dearly has sold this country down the toilet to look after party donators.
