    Which of your soft, womanly ears did the manly assailant whisper the hurtful feelings into? :p

    sure, but only if I can be resident snarky thread troll.

    I mean I am now, just asking for recognition.

    I know, I was all set - preordered was actually getting deals sorted for 65" c8 OLED but I guess I'll have to put all that on the back burner. Ive waited 4 odd years so I guess 6 months longer is not the complete end of the earth.

    I also feel your pain. I was in one of the first release areas that was getting FTTP. Then the government changed. Half of town has FTTP and my half has FTTN. You walk about 750m down my street and you can see where it changes. At least I have NBN though which you don't. There is also 76m between the nod and my house so I can actually get 96Mb on FTTN.

    I was capped at 0.2Mbps upload, it is almost a pleasure to work from home now / backup files etc :)

    I understand the feeling. We were supposed to be available with FTTC as of May, then end of July, now when I looked online it seems like November. On the gripping hand, I have seen them replacing one pit with the asbestos warning signs around the area, then replacing, or running a new, conduit and a new big pit has been installed down the street a bit. And today I saw a trailer with a couple of rolls of cable on it, so they might actually be pulling it through soon.

    my old area was meant to get FTTH JUST after the last election when the libs got in and canned it all.... (2013?)
    That area has only JUST got FTTN now...

    Yes. I work from home and a lot of my clients are international so upload was actually more important for me. I am on a 50/30 plan and get my 30Mb upload. Sure I could get that 96Mb theoretically but not once you take into consideration the backhaul and congestion. There is only my son and I so the 50Mb is fine but I feel for the people with 2.3 teenagers.

    no such animal. 50/20 is the closest speed tier.

    I thought so too but had an inkling that it was 50/25 so checked and the page I was looking at said 50/30 so presumed I must have been mistaken. Now that I saw your post I have gone back and checked it they are saying 30 is the regular evening speed.

    Reading is hard :(.

    something makes me think these new terribad dates are placeholders to reset expectations.

    well that's quite interesting (ran test just now as it was feeling a bit sluggish)
