    I've had the same OPTUS 200gb Home Wireless $80/month for a year or so, router in same spot, even tried to boost by putting it on the roof, no different.

    6mb/1.1mb all day long, I tried to select best channels and all that, it's fine for DL steam and stuff, I don't use it much outside of that.

    Anyway service went down for an hour now, so did the same iinetspeedtest, this time it was 46.2mb/28.5mb...idk why.
    If it goes, then it was prob a tower reset and that sort of speed is possible where I am.
    If it stays, then good-oh, maybe have a proper service for once, and maybe I game like a little ozzie battler champ.
    Best to check anyone else if you have a Optus home wireless plan.

    As a side note, I also run a Optus 4G prepaid dongle, that can pull 28mb/16mb from inside a house(on 2 bars reception) and has been able to do that for last 5-6 years easy.
    I jus ran same test and it's dropped to 22.0mb/6.9mb.

    It's pre-paid and expensive hence why I couldn't really game on it.

    Thats twice the speed of my home ADSL+2 from IINET. My apartment is fairly old and the exchange is around 6km away from where I live.
    Lucky to get 3.4 average

    I hear ya, getting poor performance when you spend your hard earned on something, one of my few trigger tbh.
    I'd cut a b!tch up over yellow or brown lettuce in my burger, it costs how much now days, near $10 for a large meal and c&nts still can't make a fresh warm burger and cooked fries...#fail@life

    *update*
    Guess what happened when I got home and checked my internets, 5.5mb/1.0mb...No MOBA for me.
    I opened STEAM last night, normal DL speed was 500mb, last night it was pulling up to 6.1Mb, avg was 4.5Mb, I DL'd a PUBG EXP update, 9.0gb downloaded in 30mins flat, normal would be 3 n half hrs..or overnight..LOL

    Played PUBG, put me on SEA and ping was 250ms 1 game, 200 another.....today played 1 game at 200ms....3 games and reported 2 of them....they jus knew I was coming even though I was crouched or crouch-walking.
    I was looking forward 5G network, i'm trying to not put a hardline in coz not sure how long i'll be here for, whereas I can take a WIFI with me.

    Checked my NBN a week ago, FTN available, I think a pit is 30m away, exchange i'd guess 2kms, local prob is my suburb is like +100 years old, nothing has changed and street is elevated enough, no flooding pit but old copper lines.
    If I did go hardline and be getting something awful speed wise, i'd be livid and unpleasant.

    The sad part of that is that you are faster than 65% of Oz.... :confused:

    Mines a bit slow tonight... I put it down to my new mobo not having a remote aerial and the aerials are buried down behind my oversized case and way too many peripherals, including an audio amp, which is perhaps obscuring my signal (being directly between the aerials and the router). I'll add a remote aerial tomorrow and see if it improves. Of course it would probably be faster via cable, but my whole house is wireless, I prefer it that way.

    Mine has been pretty solid lately, I'm waiting for fibre to be installed in my part of the neighbourhood so I can switch from cable

    Thought I'd do a variation:

    4G on Samsung S7

    upload_2019-4-9_11-41-54.png

    4G on Samsung S7 Hotspot

    upload_2019-4-9_11-42-29.png

    4G on Samsung S7 USB Tethering

    upload_2019-4-9_11-42-55.png

    Moral of the story... If you need a big file fast down through 4G, download it natively then transfer it over USB. Otherwise, USB tethering is unsurprisingly faster than WiFi Tethering

    Came here to gloat, but now my results aren't that impressive.

    Speed test result from just now with GF watching netflix at 8pm on a Tuesday night in Mildura, VIC.

    Again connected to a Telstra server.

    Just signed up to iiNet and their HFC network (they purchased the network from TransACT).
    • 24month contract
    • $40 for the first 12mths, $80 there after
    • ~$100 to break contract after 12mths
    • Unlimited data
    • Advertised typical peak speed of 200mbps.
    ....What the fuck is an NBN???

    Ran three time this was the best DL, first go was ~100Mbps, last go was ~120Mbps.
    UL and Ping much the same across the three

    Should I expect a knock on the door from the AFP now???
    Also I'm connected via Wi Fi to the router downstairs, unsure if wired would be faster.

    LOL wut? You won’t get a visit from AFP LEL.

    It depends, I think laptop wifi is ok, but mobile wifi probably not. I’d say it’ll be quicker via physical eth connection, but marginal.
