Speaking of speed....
I've just moved house...from almost the biggest city in Australia [Melbourne will pass Sydney soon] to the third biggest city in Victoria...4.9 million down to 101 thousand.
Australia is in the throes of getting an 'NBN' National Broadband Network which was originally going to be optic fibre to the premises, but got whittled down to optic to a node and carrier pigeon [or something] to the premises.
Best that is likely to be achieved is about 50 Mbps....still behind third world countries....
Gets worse... incompetence [and monopoly] was going to have me do much of the work FOR them to connect it to the new place....even though it SHOULD have been completed 10 years ago...Ballarat was part of the trial roll-out back then....and believe it or not...where I left from...the old house...only about 3km from the center of Melbourne still hasn't got it....I was on ADSL2 there.
Gets worser... while they were trying to set me up all I had was the NBN Modem with a 4G sim card in it...so for a month or two I had about 5 Mbps.
Finally I saw the light...went with something outside of this NBN 'monopoly' and got Cable ...it was already there...the previous owner clearly had seen the light [too].
Took no time at all to get the service set up....ran a speed test...and pulled 460 Mbps.
And to top it off....I'm saving myself about $10 per month.
Goes to show, even after 42 years as a loyal customer ...you try to screw me and I'll walk....
