I was wondering if nbn works in a neighbouring suburb would affect my internet speeds. We have never had the greatest of services in regards to speed, but it has been enough. since work has begun on the nbn in the next suburb however it has been terrible.
Our devices haven't been able to connect to our WiFi because there isn't enough bandwidth (I have no idea what I'm talking about here but this is what someone told me). This then results in all the data on our phones getting consumed because our kids watch you tube and netflix while we think the phones are connected to wifi, resulting in more data charges. During peak times it is even worse.
We mainly use our internet for gaming on Xbox one and browsing the net. The gaming though has been a nightmare with constant drop outs in games and awful lag. Once again this wasn't as big of a problem as it is now since the start of the nbn work.
We are within 2 kilometres of the exchange and can achieve download speeds of between 3 - 4 mbps. Should we be getting better speeds or should we be calling a technician? If anyone has had a similar problem I would love to know if you got it sorted. We live in wattle glen victoria and the nbn works are in diamond Creek.
