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

    Sorry, more with changing isp. You are right about the connection method, obviously wouldn't be as frequent.

    Cable still going strong. Haven't actually seen it ever going past 112Mbps before.

    New NBN connection

    Still waiting for the RT-AC68U to arrive so I can get a better judgement on the NBN connection.
    Can't get the Telstra branded Netgear CG3100D-2 working on NBN so it's currently running on an older router.
    Both running through the splitter as well.

    New router received and after a bit of fucking around, it's pulling decent speeds.

    Latency is a bit of a concern though

    Is that via LAN or wireless?

    We got a new router about a month ago and are happy with the wireless;

    Both are offering the same latency.

    Your first 2 speed tests were to Sydney, then your last is to Melbourne.

    Looks like you're with Aussie BB, try their own speed test using Ookla and pick your city: speed.aussiebroadband.com.au

    Can you link me to that plan? You have to get fibre installed from node to residence right? At your cost?

    I am surprised because this is the BEST speed I have EVER had.. and it's still as slow as a wet week.
    Internode NakedDSL (ADSL 2+)

    I typically have around 1.0 Mbps download

    Will the real speed please step forward?

    My plan is 100/40. For reference, I'm using the stock ABB Netcomm NF18ACV, whole house is running wireless. The only network cable in the house connects the modem to the router.

    Although the ABB speed test is based on the Ookla speed test, the similarities in speed are just too close to make me take the speedof.me test seriously. Pretty graphics and all, but I'm inclined to disbelieve it personally. Anyone got any other speed tests to compare?

    Out of curiosity, and possibly out of the bounds of this thread, one of the laptops (modern but cheap) will only connect to 2.4GHz, cannot see the 5GHz connection. The same applies to one of the phones (stepdaughters Huawei). Everything else see and uses the 5GHz connection no problem, including the old D-Link Wireless N dongle in use on Eva's rig (no onboard on her rig). I have to wonder how a 7-8 year old wireless N dongle can see a 5GHz connection (and get full speeds from it) but a 6 month old laptop and 8 month old phone can't?
