    This is a typical storm issue on HFC modems where the Wan port goes. It's so easy to detect though the pretty lights on the back stop working

    I looked at it then. I gave up when I saw the comment about it being a conspiracy theory designed to protect Murdoch's TV interests. :rolleyes:

    Not Rudd's comments specifically, because I'm not touching the Reddit poo, but Foxtel absolutely did have a significant investment in a distribution network and media delivery systems that a mostly FTTP NBN would've made irrelevant.

    caspian, is it possible to check if a service has ever been used at an address via an NTD's Serial/Mac address. Wondering if i'll get slapped with the $300 fee

    Thanks for that Caspian... Unfortunately, thanks to Telstra's backwards as fuck systems my move could take a week. They can't move a service that has Foxtel as part of a Bundle if the new property hasn't had the Dish installed.

    I realise there is great hate for the big T here. Only went with them because of the deal I'm on.

    So my connection was short lived, There was faults all weekend so Telstra wouldn't log a fault. The faults have been cleared and guess what....my internet no longer works. Because Telstra live in an alternate reality where nobody goes to work and they all sit around on the ass all day waiting for a tech to arrive the first available appointment is THURSDAY THE 24TH.......

    that sounds suss to me. the worst case fault attendance time for even a minor rural area is 5pm second business day. the 24th is 9 business days from today. at a guess it sounds like Telstra are electing to send their own tech out?

    He's in Brisbane, they're possibly short staffed due to natural disasters + annual leave (school holidays) ?

    yes, possible. the contractual agreements do have provision for force majeure events, but if one had been declared then I'd know about it. the other possibilities are that the system simply hasn't offered an inside-SLA appointment and the RSP hasn't asserted their rights to one (which does happen, and there's a process for), or the RSP has selected an appointment time outside the SLA window, in which case it's voluntary on their part to waive the SLA.

    easy enough to establish if he wants to PM me an address.

    ... how much weather impact suffers a fixed wireless Internet connection (NBN)?
    Thinking of rain/thunderstorm and speed stability issues...

    opinions/suggestions welcome!

    Apparently it's quite decent even with rain and thunderstorms. It's not like Satellite NBN where it'd drop out with a whisp of a cloud...

    Still only getting 50/20 max when on 100 plan.

    doesn't go above 50 and on fttc bit unusual but could be wiring in house I guess.

    Would FTTC still be prone to congestion during evening hours etc?
