So I have rebooted my modem a few times. Nothing has changed with wiring. After the storm in Rockhampton the other night this is what I get on a speed test. I hotspotted off my phone to have a usable internet.
I have been told Optus is over subscribed and I think that might be right, based on these speeds.
Time to make enquiries I guess with other providers.
If you internet is ADSL those are the sort of speeds you would expect and providing you have a limited number of users should be suitable for most of your needs including streaming.
NBN would be a different matter.
It is NBN, so not acceptable. I beleive Telstra has had an outage in the area and I guess Optus is using their network, which begs the question, why should I go with Optus who are just piggy backing off Telstra. Optus cannot offer any better performance than Telstra in the area, so I will be closing my account in the new year.
Telstra and Optus use the same NBN Network. If Optus can't meet the speeds on the plan you have signed up for you are able to cancel without any costs but you do need to speak to them as they will need to check the speeds and investigate if there are any faults.
If you do wish to change providers check with your neighbours what speeds they are obtaining.
Tell me what the minimum NBN speed I should expect from Optus. I don't want to hear that it depends on this and that. There must be a minimum acceptable speed.
What is an acceptable minimum speed for NBN from Optus?
Thanks for your help.
