I got NBN a few months ago and the speeds where fantastic, consistent and I was incredibly happy
Then the worst happened and I got this message

next day, I can’t watch YouTube without it buffering constantly, then it looks like it’s on a terrible dialup connection. Netflix fails to load or buffers or stops halfway through a show or movie.
Same with amazon prime, Apple Music and others.
I’ve repeatedly done speed tests which are usually okay but yet YouTube, Netflix, amazing, music, web browsing, downloading files in the browser, anything constantly stalls. Installed the Optus Wifi app the other day 3.58 Mbps the other day in the morning about 6:20 am, 13.46Mbps at 5:25pm that same day,
Right now the Optus wifi up is showing 8.01 Mbps down and a 60ms ping
watching YouTube is frustrating it’s like dialup again constantly pausing over and over again.
Why am I paying for this? I miss my Vivd wireless right now. Heck I’m missing ADSL, it didn’t buffer like this.
I’ve tried 3 different WIFI routers so far all same experience, I’ve cycled the WIFI router and NBN modem repeatedly to no improvement, I’ve turned everything but my iPad or iPhone off wifi to no improvement and I’ve done a direct Ethernet connection with my iMac and only my iMac is connected to no change in performance.
