    I really don’t understand why the NBN policer isn’t knocking you around.

    1.2 Gibbabits!

    I see in the US they have started rolling out 2Gb internet and plans. Well I won't get 2Gig, but a 1Gig plan starts to make some sense. My PC is under the desk and with the antenna on the computer I get ~800Mbps, but I notice if I put my antenna on top of the desk, 1.2Gbs. Even with a narrow net pipe, my internal network transfers will be bitch'n(tm) fast.

    Asus rt-ax86u..

    But I am like 15 m away from the router with half a dozen walls in a steel framed house.
    2.4Gb wifi is pretty sweet. I will have to try to match that.... Same card and same router!

    Great router choice!

    Get on to 5GHz, although you said you had lots of obstacles didn't you. I'm only 1.5 walls away.

    Still very happy with AussieBB after joining up :thumbup: Any time I run speedtest I'm always getting the same results, never really dips in any significant way.

    Launtel nbn HFC - use 100/20Mbps daily.

    Good to have the flexibility to bump up to 100/40 or 250/25 for a day or two / as needed.

    [​IMG]


    250/25Mbps a while ago.

    edit: gigabit now enabled here so I decided to try out the 400/50 #NQFastAF plan for a day- not bad for HFC!

    Bloody oath, also thank you sir.
    Just remember it's a different house as well, not that it should matter going from FTTP to FTTP.

    Just got an email that 4Gb plans are available at my address now, albeit damn tempting, it's not very useful for a house of only 2 people :lol:.
    Pretty happy with my 1Gb plan for now, it's supposedly 900/400, so pretty bang on!

    [​IMG]

    Although I do kinda want the 4000/4000 for epeen reasons, I just can't justify the $180/month.

    Goddamn boy! You’re big dick swinging it as you are with the over provisioned 900/400, let alone pwning the NBN with 4000/4000 fiber option.

    We are 1000/50 unlimited for $149 aud ($157nzd)

    Jeeze, I pay $75/month for my 900/400! So your 1000/50 is the same price as our 4000/4000....
