Netgear or Cisco modem/router?
All 20 (10 each to EU and US, 5 of each to 563 and 443), plus 2 more from freebie provider on 119.
Gotta love a single digit ping!
I've followed your posts on WP Lodion - looks like sub par 100mbit local and international speeds? Wonder if it's to do with the equipment for Ellenbrook?
Any one else on WA HFC 100mbit not in Ellenbrook?
Lodion is not in Ellenbrook. Think you're confusing him and I.
Fast domestic, slow international does not seem to be a location-based issue. Nor does not being able to max out 100Mbps 24/7 for e-peen. The WP thread has users from different suburbs and states reporting similar performance. It's just how Telstra manage their traffic unfortunately.
Maybe it due due to the fact it's still not docsis 3 in any place other then Melbourne and it's a consumer service.
But derp derp away
If ultimate in Perth (enabled Nov 30) is not EuroDOCSIS 3 then what standard is it?
Other capitals have to wait until Monday, but Perth and Melbourne already have Ultimate.
It is EuroDOCSIS 3...

and I can get better single thread speeds on other consumer grade residentail services. Fishy go derp derp elsewhere.
Well snap indeed, to used to abusing the enemy for it's slow roll out.
Called up and ordered this morning, person on the phone knew what was going on, now just gotta wait for the modem to arrive.
So some guy from telstra came to my house offering this new 100megabit cable internet (free installation). Is it worthwhile getting it ? I don't really know anything about it.
What is the best plan to get on ?
He told me $68 200gig plan would suit me. Is there a speed difference between plans.
Well just finished putting my order in, was very fast. Got re-contracted but that doesn't worry me at all.
Currently on the 30Mb/s plan with the Homeline budget phone plan for $89/month.....so no extra cost except the $149 modem/router which I definitely couldn't get her to waive, bugger.
Put an order in the Cisco, so fingers crossed!
I called up to upgrade today and was told "docsis 3.0 may be available in your area"
Apparently this means they might be in the process of upgrading the back end now.. anyone else get this? Is it B.S should I push them for the upgrade anyway?
Just got an sms from Telstra to say it's in the system so I'm quite excited to see what speeds I'll manage to get out of this upgrade!
Currently I can pull down about 4.2Meg/s at full throttle.
Placed order on Monday, still no tracking number for modem yet
What's the big deal with tracking numbers for the modem It will arrive when it arrives
But if you *really really* need one then give them a call and ask for one: 1800-331-286
Modem has arrived and is waiting for me at work only I'm not at work until tomorrow.. /wrists
Some called me up and signed me up for 100mbit.
Extra $10/month with free t-hub rubbish.
My modem arrived today, I go to activate it and it gives me an error saying my username and password is incorrect so I call tech support and they say they will txt me the password so I get the txt and it's basically the password I've been trying to use. So I try it again anyway and get the password is incorrect error again.
This time I ask to have the password reset and I try once more and I get the error again T__T I try a different browser just in case. Then it says that I've attempted too many times and it's locked my account for 1hour so now I've gotta wait an hour and the tech will "call me back" (yeah right) and try again.
But I don't know what I'm going to do if I'm using the correct username and password each time yet it's saying it's wrong. This sounds like a database problem.
I use this username and password all the time to log in and check my data usage so it's definitely correct but obviously their modem activation system isn't finding the correct details.
Finally got it sorted out! now I'm a happy customer 8D
This is pretty much the fastest speed I can get I think lol, I'm in Wishart using the Internode Speedtest Server.
