    Telstra home phone lines are 99.9% copper, however not all are adsl2+ compatible. If your behind a cmux or Rim you cant get ADSL2/2+ only ADSL1 through telstra Wholesale even if your local exchange has ADSL2+ DSLAM.

    Ive been thinking of moving to this plan from regular ADSL, just thought id gloat at my estimated figures;)

    Line of Sight: 118 m
    Estimated Cable: 195 m
    Estimated Attenuation: 3
    Estimated Maximum Speed: 25000

    Ive been with TPG previously when they had axed plans, and I too was allowed to remain on the original plan. No problems at all back then, although it was a few years ago.

    I wonder if TPG actually makes a profit..

    Seriously iam using $30 on iiNet and it gives me 1.5gb for the whole month (peak + offpeak)..now isn't that way more profitable than $70 for 150gb?

    Yeah well i only figured it out today that the exchange at the end of my street is the one i am connected to. Im living with my missus, and when we moved here, for some reason they got another number, with the old number forwarding to the new one. When i put the old number into various websites, it said it was on the old exchange, 4-5km away, so i never bothered with ADSL2.

    Hopefully I can get connected in the next week or so, been very excited all today!

    off-peak is not capped (if you haven't gone over your quota), you get uncap pretty much right at 1am

    funny sometimes I get 15KB /s when capped during peak hours, and the upload are definally more then the cap limit
