I was with opticomm for 2 years, it was fine for me but YMMV
I noticed the exisiting own was using vodafone mobile internet, which i wasn't sure if it's a bad sign or just that maybe they're a tenant and it's an easier service to relocate.
Can't really consider mobile for work purposes though which is going to be our main use as we also need to move our ABB VOIP over
Sounds like what I went through looking at a place to buy. It was part of an existing Telstra Velocity estate that was moving to Opticomm (as they bought them all) and getting upgraded to NBN level speeds. ABB is a reseller. Didn't buy the place in the end but was interesting finding out about it all.
and Opticomm have now been bought out by Uniti
sure, shoot it across. although the mention of Opticomm is not promising.
jpw007 - might be able to get you on to a Telstra trial, if you’re interested
Stuck with ABB unfortunately due to our VOIP contract, but I definitely appreciate the offer!
Today is June 6, my HFC NTD arrived April 8th. My service is working as of a few hours ago. Will see how long it lasts. What an awful way this whole NBN/RPS shit is set up for the customer.
So Does anyone know who I need to contact to get my HFC Underground?
I am able to trench and run the conduit myself.. just need to.know who to contact on getting the extra length from the main point across the street to the current location of the Grey box
Is it overhead from a pole to your property or UG from a pit in the street then up a private pole in your property?
If the former I doubt it will be cheap as it's not a standard build option for an OH area.
Underground to other side of the street then overhead to another stobie pole then aerial Lead-in
raise a Relocation Works application from this page and the team will provide a quote.
It's a shame you have HFC and not FTTC, for me it was only $900 more to get a full fibre upgrade than the quote I received to put the existing FTTC connection underground.
Apparently NBN technical portal/api is down for maintenance, can't do line tests, port resets or stability profile through the aussiebb portal and the even aussie support can't perform it themselves at the moment. Stuck with my connection dropping out every few minutes.
Luckily have 500gb of data banked with amaysim to tide me over.
this weekend is a planned maintenance release timeslot where multiple systems are taken offline in a coordinated manner for upgrades, patching and fixes.
it's done that way specifically at the behest of the RSPs to minimise the overall system down time and the need to manage what would otherwise be multiple individual system unavailabilities. it is planned a full year in advance and every NBN customer knows about it.
possibly a little expensive for the average home user, but 10Gbps enterprise ethernet is now available. I presume at least some of the people who think 10Gbps local networks are a consumer grade commodity would be interested though?
Sure... if it'll stop the kids complaining about how long updates take from Steam, Xbox and Epic, then it's money well spent! ;-)
Might have to update my USG Pro 4 first though...
and my switches... and then my WiFi...
only if it's $49.99 per month
korea has it
yeah, a bit like the F250 I'd like is $40,000 in the US but strangely $175,000 here. and all I have to do to get one at the lower price is move to America.
Haven't seen NBN-EE pricing yet, but AAPT Fibre10000 is $2500/month ish
