Don't you know what you are paying for?
Tis a good day on mine
With telstra.... why the god awful ping?
Not bad for $45 a month with unlimited downloads.
this is with IINET ADSL 2+ ... apparently I am too far away from the exchange ... sucks
Not a bad result considering I pay less than 40 a month
got this the other day best I'v seen on my net
Did you sign up for "Ultimate" (100Mb) or did you only want "elite" ?
Just asking because sometimes they stuff the order up which might have happened to you, depending what you actually ordered
Na got elite way before Ultimate came out almost out of our 24 month contract (sometime in july) and I am thinking of going to ultimate after that only down side is the uploads being counted but I can live with that
Ah ok, I read it as you getting the connection the other day
You can get ultimate on standalone plans now ($10/mth extra for it) but you will need to get the cisco modem from Bigpond. New bundles should be out next week (double usage) but apparently the standalone plans won't be getting updated yet (normally 1-2mths behind bundle upgrades)
They are counted on your current plan too but you will be able to upload twice as fast on ultimate
Telstra Cable - not too bad compared to my old adsl2+ - i hold a solid 2.6MB/s download with usenet.
Not sure at that point in time, It could be usage as he is a carrier, or could be the speedtest server itself having congestion, or it could be a limitation of his link, im not sure exactly what's been purchased in this case.
As noted, it is a carrier grade service, and as such usually bandwidth is purchased at a 1:1 ratio. Some suppliers do do 4:1 sometimes at a cheaper rate, but I'm not sure what my friend has bought.
Can I just bring my own Cisco ISR as long as they dont lock down the cisco/bigpond modem ill be happy
EPC3925 is the only choice
I haven't used one personally so not sure what features are/aren't there but it "does the job" (in bridged mode...) You could also have issues for the first week or so until the firmware update comes through but they might not have an impact on bridged connections.
No point, you would need a 2911/2921 minimum and then plugging it to a crap bigpond modem would be a waste lol.
Yea but you only get 4:1 on smaller office links since its mostly for users.
Considering they have there own AS and a 400M+ means they are likley serving traffic, not leaching it.
Yeah, pretty impressed with it considering the distance.
Quotas are shit though!!
today seem a bit slow for iprumus big kahuna
