Tell you what, NBN is absolute fucking garbage during peak.

So much congestion. I am getting slower speeds than ADSL, much slower. Crazy slow. It's painful.
Put a complaint in. You are paying for speed now days, I'm pretty sure they have to guarantee it. It doesn't surprise me that these fucking government deadshits have no idea.

Aye, I think at the moment they only guarantee it to be some piddly amount, but it's even slower than that during peak.

Will follow up on it over the weekend when I have a chance.

According to them, they are not legally allowed to guarantee any speed.

Mmm. I don't think that's 100% correct. Looks like the ISPs are adding that to all of their connections, so then they don't have to do shit about the problem with NBN. I thought NBN, as per what was passed in parliament, was a minimum speed of 12mbps.

Which is still rubbish.

Time Australia stopped doing shit half assed.

Anyone running telephones via the NBN? Ours are very noisy, to the point where our new provider learned what happens when Nashy is not happy with his phone lines / Internet.
Mate our work switched ours over two months ago (just before chrissy) and its been a fucking nightmare. We get two second echos on random calls & the lines drop out occasionally. We are due to swap to another provider tomorrow morning but yeah its been that bad I have given all my clients my mobile number and told them if its fucking up that bad, ring me on that. Of course our office manager is the laziest **** going so he is trying to find the cheapest phone provider out there to make himself look good to the partners. He is as useless as tits on a bull.

Tell him to check out Nexgen. They seem to have sorted all of our issues out now.

I didn't have time last night. I needed some Linux ISOs. Managed to download 35GB between 6.30 and bedtime.

Was pulling 93mbps/32mbps over ethernet. Porn Hub has never been so good.

Come at me, bruh.

Pretty furious with TPG for providing a modem that doesn't have the required wireless technology to get me any decent speeds on wireless. I'm actually considering a complaint about it. Once I have read the millions of terms and conditions.

You got the Huawei piece of shit, like me?

I just disabled wireless and plugged it into my RT-N66U. Massive, massive difference.

Yep, that Chinese junk. With one of the worst looking admin pages I've seen on a router! I'll bridge my Archer D7 over the weekend to get faster porns.

Hang on, are you guys saying on TPG that you need your own modem and router as well as the wall box?

I've just got the NBN modem in the wall box, and that goes straight into my router's WAN port.

Sounds like you have FTTP you lucky duck!

I only have lowly FTTN. No 'modem in the wall box' here, just comes through the trillion year old copper phone line from the node.

Agree about the admin interface [MENTION=1976]Nashy[/MENTION] - it is disgusting!
