I'm still on iiNet NBN so far and I've not really had much to complain about. Kinda sucks they did away with the 50/20 plans though (thanks to TPG) as they were a good in between speed at a fair cost. I could have stayed grandfathered on that but decided to drop back to 25/5 with the 1000gb quota.

As much as I would like to say screw iiNet/TPG I just haven't found anything that I can really say is better value, and I haven't really had any service complaints so far.

My service is rock solid, pity my speed is shit lately:

In the evenings my speed during a download will jackhammer between 40-100Mmps.

Mine's actually a little slower than normal. Not that it's really noticeable

Thanks!

Any feedback regarding overseas connections? I'm doing a lot of file transfer to a US perforce server, so looking for something with a good overseas speed too.

That's pretty much it for me. :( And nothing I can do about it. Have complained too many times to count and all I get is "Anything above 3.00 is acceptable from us" ADSL2+ sucks.

That's on Activ8me's Unlimited 50/20 fixed wireless plan ($79.95/month - same as what I was previously paying for 100GB ADSL2+ (with power pack) through Node.

That's an awesome price considering you only had ADSL2+ before which was for the same price.

I pay $10.00 more and get these below speeds sometimes even faster (275/54.4), I'll be interested in how fast the NBN can get in some area's, having unlimited would be good I have 1TB of data and never go anywhere near using it, so after all these years I'm as happy as a kid in a candy store, after having some dodgy arse internet over the years. :D

This below is from a previous post.

Your upload is awesome now, I know some people that would kill for the upload as download, they must still be doing some works on our infrastructure, I'm happy with what I have 34meg down and 6.8meg up if it stays like it, loving the upload more than download it's just so nice to pump a file onto my ftp file site in a matter of minutes instead of the old time frame of hours or days.

Yeah I think there might be some peak download speed throttling going on across the board. This is the result of the test I just did (50/20 at 9:30pm)

Last night I was getting just 1Mb/s down on my NBN connection. It's beyond pathetic. Also with iiNet (whom I have grown to hate with a passion for various reasons)

It's funny how they're seemingly immune to the crazy consumer rights harping that pisses off people working in every other industry. Ironically my mate 2 blocks away is getting full speed on 100/40 through telstra AND paying less than I am.

iiNet are not a good NBN RSP, they often don't buy sufficient CVC (backhaul) for the number of customers connected so peak congestion is often an issue.

I loathe to say it but it would be worth trying Telstra on one of your other FTTP NTD ports as you may get a congestion free service.

iiNet are only going to get worse now that limitless plans exist.

I wouldn't even call them iiNet anymore, this sort of behaviour is TPG through and through.

Precisely why I jumped ship (from Internode) when signing up for the NBN. Others were thinking maybe TPG would maintain iiNet as is, never believed it for a second.

Haven't been so happy with an internet service since the early days of my Internode DSL connection.

I have a friend on the same block who is with Telstra, his 25 plan is dramatically faster than i am 95% of the time. He just runs at fulls speed any time of day.

Would have already jumped but Skymesh isnt available here. :(

It's funny how a newbie teleco can provide performance at a good price but somehow the industry favorites for the last 20 years couldnt find their wang in the shower. There HAS to be profit to be made there or companies like Skymesh wouldnt exist.

I really wonder if TPG are purposefully running iiNet and Internode NBN into the ground so that they don't have to bother with the extra brands

Mine rarely drops below 90 Mbps download even though TPG.

Comically TPG actually have less congestion on NBN.

When Michael Malone quit it was the beginning of the end, the beancounters that ran iiNet afterwards ran the company into the ground then flogged it off to TPG likely because they relaised they were not up to the job and wanted out.

SkyMesh probably have a lot larger overheads than iiNet/TPG would be which makes the substandard service even more glaring.

I'm all for jumping on the TPG hate train but it doesn't explain why I'm getting similar results at around the same time on a 50/20 fixed wireless connection through Activ8me (who have nothing to do with TPG as far as I know).

Could be CVC and/or fixed wireless itself congesting. NBN own very limited spectrum in some areas.

Remember that NBN now only claim have to offer you 25mbps once in a 24 hour window and they aren't even offering that with some users on FTTN suffering congestion 24 hours a day regardless of Retail Service Provider (ISP basically).

You have to understand the current government has instructed NBN to rollout the NBN as quickly as possible, NBN and the current government couldn't care less about the quality of service provided as they just blame Labor at every opportunity and claim experts are ignorant and NBN can overcome the laws of physics.
