    LOL...

    I guess in theory I'll beat you then, my area has been RFS since Dec, but not my street, so I should get in in front of you :p

    that is 100% a function of the ISP, not the NBN.

    marketing would do well to consult engineers before making promises.

    politicians = marketing.

    I've been watching for signs of life, but all I really have so far is this..


    Click to view full size!


    Its on an intersection, right next to another older box which I assume controls the traffic lights.

    Its also an intersection with both speed and red light cameras.. I wonder if this box has anything do with those? I'm betting cameras but if anyone actually knows..

    I was all excited when I saw it there (for all I know it could have been there years :lol:) because it was open and some guy was working on it.

    That doesn't look like a node but as you said the control box for traffic lights.

    The reality is it doesn't actually matter. My modem syncs with the node at 96Mbps, I'm with Telstra, and the best download speed I can get between 6PM-12AM is about 6-7Mbps. At 3AM I get 90Mbps.

    The NBN is worse than my ADSL.

    I'd imagine Xanthia is a long way from the nearest node? :lol:

    challenge accepted. PM me a street and suburb (don't need house number).

    no, your Telstra ISP is teh shit. that's clear CVC congestion. churn.

    Really. Because from what I'm told they're the best. But I suppose if I went with a really obscure ISP then I wouldn't be competing with others in my area would I? Who do you recommend?

    Obscure ISPs are also less likely to have heaps of CVC bandwidth - or none at all in your area.

    I'm that worried, although I am a bit miffed that a great big unit block got built nearby - and it has fiber.... it's this one little blob in the middle of the suburb with fiber and the rest is marked as "planned" which mean, haha yeah when we get around to it mate.

    So again, what do you guys recommend. It's one thing to say an ISP is shit, but then not list any suggestions..? Or do you have to go on business plans to get your promised/potential bandwidth?

    sure, that's the difference between greenfields and brownfields.

    if you want to know when, it's your call.

    Hey caspian,

    You want to take up my challenge?? :)

    HFC infill area, now 2 months past RFS, and I still show "additional work required"

    RSP can't get any answers, Federal MP can't get any answers, and me, well I have no hope of getting any answers directly.;)

    I would be forever in your debt. :D
