PostSubject: THE NBN is on at my place   Tue Oct 25, 2016 5:45 pm

Just got an email from my ISP that the NBN upgrade is now done at my place. Be interesting to see what they have given me - FTTN and I am 300 metres from the node - should be good. If it's over 75 MBit/s ("up to 100 MBit/s" is the rated speed) I will be a happy chappy indeed. Time will tell.

I suspect that unless your phone line buzzes like mad and often doesn't work, that you are about to become a very happy chappie indeed:)

We have had NBN for around 6 months now, no real speed difference but the thing as a whole is now more stable and reliable.

Is your NBM wireless, fibre  (FTTN) or (FTTP) or something else ?

If it's FTTN (fibre to the node) meaning copper from 'the node' to your house, how long is that copper and any idea of age ?

Wireless I think ......
Does not use our old phone line
There is a little square antenna on the roof at the back of our house
Thats about all I know about it, a bloke came and fitted it all up, no cost that I know of ....
No prob, all good

Wireless, there is the problem re your lack of speed. Wireless has only so much available bandwidth to share with everyone in range, and its a lot less than fibre optic cables offer.

OK 88 MBit/sec for hard wired devices; 66 MBit/sec for WiFi. You could say I am suitably impressed, so far.
