    ABB on HFC

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

    Telstra residential. Syncs at ~135/50, I pay for 100/40. Used to actually get that, too. The above speed is the best i've seen in weeks. It has usually been sitting at 35/30 regardless of TOD.

    Transferring to ABB asap.

    Ooh I wish gigatown came to Caboolture! Curious to see what speeds you get during peak time. Would you have a look at my speed tests I've done to international servers and compare? I'm on the myrepublic 100/40 fttn plan.

    Indeed, but they will stack them if you ask nicely (double data + 1 month free + 1 month free for the referral)

    Its what i ended up on, so 2tb/month + static IP + unlimited offpeak comes to 120/month

    Also found deano on whirlpool apparently now he wont be connected until the 30th due to backhaul supply issues with hellstra (which is probably why his telstra speeds are crap as well)

    telstra haven't admitted to any cvc issues, i haven't gone far enough up the chain for that. i got annoyed early on, so far they have admitted there are problems and waived a months bill and $260 of ETC. I'm chasing up the speed issues further today, as I can finally point to the "premium speed boost" which I am on as a reference to minimum speeds, when they inevitably start parroting "12/1 minimum during colocation".

    I'm wary of the 30th connection date, it's already changed once from the 4th. From what I understand, the delay is contributed to telstra wholesale delays in provisioning more backhaul for them, not cvc per se

    Telstra Velocity FTTP (predates nbn) 100/5

    [​IMG]

    As much as I hate Telstra, this service has always been fast and reliable. But so it should be if Telstra are to deny other ISP’s from offering services on this infrastructure (forcing us to pay Tel$tra prices).

    The 5 Mb upload does suck the fat one though.

    Also, am I the only one that prefers speedof.me over speedtest.net??

    Really need a new internet service. Optus cable in 3028 is rubbish, congestion is insane. Generally from 4pm-12am+ on week days and all of the weekend is unusable.

    As you can see can't even finish a Speedtest :/

    I'm not a big fan - I don't know where their nearest server is, but it doesn't yield meaningful results when testing my connection. Here's a comparison:

    At 26ms away, their nearest server is probably Sydney or Brisbane - my Uniti connection will do this from Sydney:

    Interesting how you're getting 102 down from Perth. I haven't noticed anything to indicate there's a problem with Uniti's transit, so... hmmm!

    Upgrade to 100/40 with ABB, pretty happy coming from a 7/1 ADSL connection at the old place :D

    Given how frequently people change the thread poll is kinda useless really. Probably should be done for 6 months or so.

    Are you referring to people changing ISP’s and or connection method? How frequently is frequently?
