Sure it is, it's just 0.1gbit
Okay, thats not too bad. Thanks for the info, ill look into it.
Ended up getting the $300 completely refunded because 3 different phone support people blatantly lied to us, brother recorded their ID numbers and reported them to his manager (he works at telstra) lol. If you get lucky they'll do what they do to heaps of people, put you on elite (35mbit) instead of ultimate (100mbit), then lie about fixing it or similar (one tech tried to tell us 'oh you are on ultimate it just says elite on your plan due to a text error and line losses mean you just connect at the exact limit of elite speed out of coincidence' rofl), then you can call them out and get a large credit on your account too I guess they assume the vast majority of people wouldn't have a clue and would just sit happily with elite, thus leaving telstra with heaps more spare bandwidth?
Wow, well thanks for the heads up
fair enough, yeah 3 years for nbn here, no good
though, i have a screenshot showing a 100MB(ytes)ps (not 10, as you would get on 100mbit) from a friend down in melbourne on the NBN...
...y...yes it is
100mbit = 10mbps (approx, for an accurate at-the-computer measurement at /10 not /8), 1000mbit (ok ok 1024) (1gbit) ~100mbps
is that a typo?
.. yes gigaBIT = approx 100mbytes when you take into account overheads in data processing
more accurately it's 128MBps
did you guys really seriously not know this?
it's 8 bits to the byte, so gigaBIT is 1024/8 = 128mBYTE
but due to the way it all works out at the computer, it's more accurate to estimate the bit>byte conversion for data transfer in particular at /10
see above, it's just a bit>byte conversion, pretty basic...
so no 100mbyte is (to the end user) 1gbit...
100mbit = 100mbps
100mbit = 10MB/s
1 gigabit = 1000mbit = 1000mbps
1 gigabit = 1000mb/s = 100MB/s
more accurately its 128MB/s
If you want to cast judgement make sure you're own house is in order first.
100MB/s IS 1gbit...
what do you mean by 'make sure your house is in order'?
oh sorry, capitalization, i meant MBps, not Mbps
that is in fact what i said, why are you correcting me? they're the ones that said otherwise lol
Capitalization isn't optional its mandatory. 99% of what you said is wrong without it!
Who cares about all that crap .. all I need to know is my cable is 23.3 times faster than my previous adsl2 connection
Finally able to max out the connection, never been able to get this speed before but all good now
Telstra now provide a Speedtest.net server in Perth:
Are you getting better speeds now with the Perth server?
yeah, but context and comprehension still goes a long way haha
Perth server is much the same for Bigpond ADSL2+. Better latency however.
Yeh it works good
i'm tempted by this for our business. mostly for the 2mbit upload speed. when your connections slow down in peak times, do you find that the upload speed suffers as well?
Maybe I'm lucky but I don't find mine slowing down at any time.
Any dual-forum-warriors tried signing up this way?
Looks like the bomb-digity, going to call today and report how I go
I read through a lot of that and it just seems like what they will normally do re discounting. I know in the last 8 years or so ive never paid full price for my services with them. But anyways some people are getting some good deals and they are happy so that's great!
I might have to try that.
The Flatmate's last 24-month Shit-tastic iPrimus deal just ended...so she went and signed up for another 24 months on "unlimited" ("unlimited" to me tends to me "shite service"). Locked in. Bought a new unecessary router and everything.
I've offered to do the cable thing, but she doesn't want to pay the bailout fee, which I'd offer to help with but considering I'm going to need to buy a cable modem, well, I can't.
Can't really afford $70/$80 month on my own, plus $189 modem...
Fucking idiot flatmates. There are few things more dangerously annoying than non-technical people who think they're technical. I blame Apple.
Ah, so you're getting 10MB/s, nice...
