    Nice! Where are you located?
    The biggest thing with NBN for me has been the upload!

    I know that people have had constant problems with Telstra, but I have had absolutely none. A bit more upload would be nice, but whatever. :p

    yeah well easy enough to switch providers, its literally a phone call away and you will have a service connected on another UNI D port.

    ABB on HFC

    So much more consistent than the Optus Cable I had before. No noticeable congestion so far.
