I was one of your first customers to take up 100Mbps cable when you ran the initial trial in Brisbane (many years ago) and then became a standard product offering.
I am keen, subject to price, to take up the 250Mbps offering that is in this month IT press articles, I believe this is called Home superfast as named by the NBN co.
I have now switched from Optus Cable to Optus NBN cable, ie I am on the HFC network.
Where can I receive guidance on how to progress this?
@petergdownload and others "Apparently HFC upload speeds are relatively limited"
I don't think this is the case of 'HFC'; the 2013 edition of DOCSIS (ie v 3.1 ) includes upload speeds of 1-2 Gbps, in fact the upload speed is one of the biggest differences the 2006 and 2013 edition.
[in my option] NBN have overpriced the 250/50 service, but rather than lower it they are introducing something new to the market, that can market as better price model. I too use the service to backup my PC's so am seeking good upload speed.
We are moving a bit off topic, the original query, seeking input hopefully from Optus marketing / pre-sales or similar. Which was is Optus offering either a trial of the 250Mbps service or offering it to to purchase? (yes subject to the usual NBN limitations for the household, area etc.)
Optus are you offering any options for either 'superfast' or 'ultrafast'?
or - did any member get on a trial with Optus?
If I can get 1000/50 download speeds for $150/month I would opt in.
I can't find any pricing for the 1000/50 option... or even the 250/50 option. Can someone confirm the pricing?
The only info I can find on the superfast & Ultrafast options tops out at ~250/50:
Optus only offered us the 250/50 option last time we asked. Is the 1000/50 option available?
Alternatively, you'll be able to reach out to them over the phone on 1800 780 219. Jono
