    Is anyone on HFC Cable?

    New house we're looking to move to is on that, so i'm curious how it works...Will i need to supply my own modem or is there a NCD like device similar to FTTC? (I gather it's not powering anything itself like fttc, but well...i know nothing about cable modems, just used the one Telstra supplied with my previous service)

    NBN supplies a cable modem, user function is closely analogous to the FTTC NCD other than it's coax input, not DSL. you just plug your router into it the same as for FTTC.

    Apparently not the 50/20 plans.

    synthetic 75/20 plans sounds quite good.

    Yeah and personally I appreciate them giving me the option of either wearing $10 or wearing 25mbit down. Will be doing the latter.

    Agreed, I forsee them being quite popular for people who get more than 50 but not quite 100, which seems to be fairly common.

    Anyone know who is still offering 100/40 plans? They're hard to find. I found 3, Superloop ($99, had to use whistleout just to find their 100/40 plan), Leaptel, never heard of them, $100 and AussieBB which is now $109.

    I'm on Kogan's Gold plan which they sneakily dropped from 100/40 to 100/20 without informing me about a month ago (so far their answer to why it dropped without notifying me has been ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ), but it's hard to find alternatives anywhere near the same price as the $90 I'm paying for Kogan (was $80 for the first 6 months, that just ended).

    I was pretty sure Vodafone, Telstra, Mate and others used to have 100/40 when I first signed up 6 months ago, but doesn't look like it anymore!

    Wow. That has risen quickly. When I signed up about 3 months ago it was $99, then had a $10/m discount for 6 months, so I'm only paying $89/m for 100/40 HFC. Not looking forward to jumping up to $109 when that discount runs out...

    It suggests to me that they're preparing for the free CVC period to end...

    They're preparing to plump their figures for the impending stock market float...

    and then it's time to jump ship as the priority will become shareholders profits not customer service.

    This is the way.


    I hope not because they have been an excellent provider for me however AAPT used to be, 'node etc etc. This too shall pass.

    Finally going to make the change fromcopper to HFC, since the copper will be discountinued in my area within 3 months.
    Can anyone suggest who I can speak to about getting an extension from the box to where I want the placement. The current copper has been positioned in teh centre of the house which is where the router andrack is sitting, and I dont feed like changin the position. Spoke to Internode and they weren't that helpful

    Yep. ABB is done. I'm considering my options for an alternate ISP.

    that's hilarious. I don't disagree with the concept that once they go public, over time services may decline... but they haven't even gone public yet lol.
