it's your upload speeds that should be increased to 5Mb.. reset your modem, if you haven't already
ur upload will go to 5
Ok I see, so not really much of a thing I'd be too bothered by really.
For some reason my download speed doesn't really budge above the 90mbit mark. It has on one occasion gone to 107mbit, which is when I knew the increase was applied, however, now it doesn't go above 90.
I even tried at 6am this morning when I was up, and it still didn't get over that 100mbit mark... I am getting the new Telstra Smart Modem today, so hopefully that might fix it.
If you sign up to a 24 month contract with telstra you can just transfer that onto the NBN with them when it comes to the area.
When NBN HFC comes to your area, it becomes "Ready for Service" in your ISP's systems. I know for Telstra, they won't force customers OFF their existing services until 18 months AFTER this date. The easiest way to get the free speed boost, IMO (I'm not in Sales though) would be to jump on 24x7 and chat with them and tell them you're an existing Optus customer and you want to switch over. They should provide it to you but there's also a huge thread on whirlpool that has other methods.
What modem are you all on that have received this update? would it matter if I used an older variant of the CG3100 that I had back when I was on Telstra cable in 2013-2015? I had speed boost back then so 100Mbps DL was working, but would the changes to the 5Mbps UL require a newer modem?
I would think telstra woukd have done it for all doccisdoccis 2/3 modems as the speed is done via modem policing not by how they sync up (they all sync up with as many channels as.configured on the cmts
Power cycled the modem and can confirm upload now increased to 5Mbps.
Interestingly, as I mentioned earlier, I was really struggling to get past 90mbps on my Gateway Max. I installed the new Telstra Smart Modem, and now even my phone over wifi is getting 114mbps. Very happy!
No 50mbit for me yet Still getting the same 36 I always get.
Cool, got the 5mbps upload, though I've never seen more than 56 down. Would that be because I have an old modem?
I have a Netgear cg3100:
I wonder if Optus is going to do the same?... yeah right!
Looks like the CG3000 has another three unused upstream channels...
I had that modem previously and had good speeds with it, in excess of 100Mbps.
Its not so much your modem, but instead the cmts config for the upstream channels. They are just not enabled in your area. They are in some
Didn't realise you needed to restart the cable modem... Got 57 now (was mid 30's). Thanx telstra, first I get unlimited downloads for xmas, now this.
is the speedboost on your account? if NOT, you were on the 30/1 plan, which is why you're only getting 56 (nothing to complain about honestly)
Good question. I'm pretty sure I've always been on the 100 plan, I'll check my account...
