Why does NBN keep dropping out?


After almost a decade of near perfect cable connection with Optus I've been on NBN for about 2 months and it drops out all the time. At least once a week it will go down and god help you if it's raining.


Why is it so rubbish? Can anything be done to make it anything resembling reliable?

What technology NBN? FTTN


FWIW once a week is probably within acceptable residential plan parameters. The issue can also be the modems fault (generally such a device should automatically reconnect after a minute - sounds like this is not happening). You could investigate buying a better quality modem ($100-$200)?

I'm using the Optus supplied modem and dropping out regularly doesn't sound reasonable to me, especially when the old obsolete cable technology was 100% reliable
