I can almost guarantee that Netflix is causing this, my ADSL has never run slower, it has never connected this poor until Netflix has been launched, it couldn't just be a coincidence? Think about it, each area is connected to an exchange which speeds are affected by how many people use the exhange and what they are using it for, if the street your on and the surrounding streets every 3rd house is using Netflix it's going to have to have an impact at some stage surely?

Even more embarrasing would be the lower spec variants of the VF in HSV's stable getting whopped by a factory XR8.

If you think about it though Netflix would only be effecting you in peak periods, people go to work, come home, then watch Netflix, that time when they start smashing the exchange with Netflix is when you would get your slowdowns.

If it still slow at early hours of the morning or off peak times, its not Netflix.

Thats my case, can be fast even during peak times, or slow at 3AM in the morning.

I hear what your saying, but it just seems like one big coincidence, maybe I'm just tripping out. Just seems so odd, always have an excellent connection with great speeds, then bam suddenly slow connection.

Telstra bloke has come and gone. Replaced couplings at the house end and power pole end and replaced a connector at the stump at the end of the street. I had to leave before I could test the 'net but the audible noise is gone.

turn your router off at the wall for 30 seconds,
see if you get better results if it re allocates a new IP/DNS address..

The problem with FTTN is scalability and also the Opex given extra power and servicing. Mine is being installed now and im not happy i wont have fibre to my home.

I will connect my elderly folks to it who live over the way from me and see how they go. may put in a high power WiFi modem so they can continue to get the bundle discounts I don't need on a home phone (and their in 80s so don't use much) and run TV off it.

Its such short sightedness this change to FTTN. I wish the pollies would take the politics out of advancing what Australians deserve. Was a sound plan. And i think the copper has been dug up and stolen in my street

Check out the graph it shows when it does the speed test, when I got a good 10/11mbps connection it doesn't raise/dip at all its just solid, now its all up and down, all over the place:

http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/4349690659



Just with my PS3 on but not doing anything, and my PC being the only other connected device talking to you guys on AFF, no downloads, nothing.

I've been like that for the last 2 or so days.

My (ADSL2) speed here in the bush is like our petrol prices.

Crappy, but consistent, it's always around the 7, regardless of the time of day. But my server is 500km's away, not around the corner like Damo and Falcon Coupe's

I was stuck on 3G for 18 months until two weeks ago. I was more than happy with the speed, but the data cost was very high. I was able to stream Netflix in HD without issue.

A company has now setup Fixed Wireless in town, I'm 8km from the tower and very happy with the speed and the cost for 500GB a month.



Joke is, NBN have almost finished the Fixed Wireless in town so I'll go from nothing to having choice...

Also Falcon Coupe you wanted someone from FTTP, this is what they got from Telstra Velocity FTTP on another forum:

Still some issues on Telstra's end for them, they drop down to .20mbps when its having issues.

Also today, changed my line profile to fast:

http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/4351103908

Picked up 2mbps and ping dropped down to 9ms from 25.



Have we got anyone on Telstra's HFC network down here? One of my family friends in Broadmeadows is getting a 100mbps solid connection on it.

I was having the same issues as you guys were for the second half of last year.
The majority of my suburb got NBN last year except my development area. To add insult we started experiencing slowdowns during evening and on weekends like you are, slowing down to as little as 1 or 2 down. We used to get 16Mbit any time of day before it happened. It lasted for 5 to 6 months.
Not long before Christmas it came good all of a sudden and is now back to 16Mbit any time of day or night.

I think all the NBN users (and foxtel channels on t-box) were overloading the backhaul. They obviously fixed it eventually but it was a frustrating 6 months.

Hopefully one day you will discover yours has been sorted as well.

I'd be keen to see this run plugged straight into your NTD, it'd be 100/40 on the dot I reckon.... ie there will be some router losses on that test.

This is why I think its not congestion that are causing my internet woes:

We're in the middle of peak times at the moment and I'm pulling this:



Other times in off peak I'm only pulling 4mbps.
