This is what happens when you don't let Telstra control shit.

 

otherwise you get this

for $100AUD a month, with no option to go with anyone else


EDIT: Absolute best case scenario i get just above 7mbps down if nothing else is happening on the network

 

Switch to TPG. The customer service is nonexistent but at least speeds are quite good

I thought we had it bad in the UK but I think with how our government is approaching broadband to be as important as any other utility has had a tremendous effect on the market place and have promised to get gigabit capability to 100% of the UK in the next decade. I currently get 356 mbps download with virgin media however a alt net called city fibre are planning on laying its network into my area which will allow 1 gbps download, Virgin are close to upgrading it's network to this however virgin use Dosics technology whereas City fibre are FTTP so are symmetrical and also the biggest company in British Telecom (BT for short) have also begun FTTP in my area and I live in a small town and 5G has also just been turned on in my area too. This is becoming the norm in the UK pretty fast and I for one aren't complaining also as of next year ISP's are required to get 10mbps download and 1 mbps upload to every property by law at a minimum. Please find a test over my WiFi (WiFi router is the Asus mesh system that is WiFi 6 capable) and one via 5G.

what? I thought my internet is the definition of a 3rd world internet but I guess I was wrong. And that's ~$40 for me to have FTT(x)

How, and why, have you got double the upload speed of your download speed....your upload matches my download....

My ISP has always been this way for most of the time. Not sure if it's just my ISP being weird. Nonetheless I'm glad that they're now replacing DSL with fiber.

The chip works by splitting the light running through already laid Internet fibers into 80 unique channels, a feat that previously required a cumbersome device featuring 80 lasers. Instead of 80 individual lasers, the micro-comb integrates the equivalent of hundreds of high-quality infrared lasers into a single chip.

Does it means that the technology to achieve such speed already exists, but it might be more accessible with that chip? Sorry but I only skimmed page 1 and 4 and nearly everything there was speedtests.

The fibre optics we use are capable (which means they don't need to lay more cable or different cable),  what this tech is is the light source that sends the information at the end of the cable.

 

It should actually prove to be a very simple upgrade process once the tech is ready for deployment.   But as was pointed out earlier, this is mainly going to benefit the back haul.  And maybe everything up to local exchanges (maybe even nodes),  as far as consumers are concerned the general laws of market supply and demand will mean we won't be seeing much of the speed increases for a while to come.


QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

Sometimes I miss contractions like n't on the end of words like wouldn't, couldn't and shouldn't.    Please don't be a dick,  make allowances when reading my posts.

I was thinking what deep pockets are required to pay for all that, then I remembered you guys Down Under have Kangaroos. Jumping ahead and all that.
