That shouldn't be necessary, my ISP can tell when, for how long and how many times my connection is a normal 'off', or a drop out due to a line problem.

Bonus is with the new router, the Wifi doesn't cutout when the microwave is on so can continue watching Foxtel when cooking

I picked the TPG 50 plan and have got it up over 47 down and about 20 up.
Same here, plan and everything except I'm using an old 5th gen Apple Airport Extreme (2011) which still works beautifully. I planned to use in the meantime while the TPG one came but surprised that it's still up to the task.
I get about 48/19 on the 50/20 plan FTTP.

Now what to do with the TPG one?

Well almost a month on NBN and so far no complaints. Actually asked a bloke at work who has FTTP and he said he was getting between 40-45mbps~ and at first it confused me but then I remembered my area is only recently NBN ready so will see how it goes when more connect to it.

I just did another speed test and it was 11 ping, 48.2 down / 18.9 up. Then I did a test on my Telstra 4G phone and it was 29 ping, 168.9 down / 37.8 up...Yep we stuffed this up!

No wonder why NBN co are worried about 5G when 4G is getting that

And off peak just hit 193.1 down / 41.3 up. I remember with my HTC phone it was less than 100 but at the time it was super fast for a new 4G phone.

I should clarify that Telstra is 4GX and they bought up heaps of the spectrum after analog TV was switched off.

4G is not an option in the house I am in.
There is barely any reception because of the way buildings are positioned blocking towers and I have to use Optus WiFi Call.
NBN actually works compared to 4G (3G is unusable).
