I put off in the hope I might get some responses............ I have adsl2 with exetel line is 20m /2m it runs about 90% of speed 24/7 ( Steam downloads runs 100% speed ) I have atm : 500GB 20m /2m for 50month Telstra standard phone 25month NBN My area is swapping to NBN, have not seen any final notices ? Maybe the letterbox got raided ( locks get dug out at units) Anyway last week my phone just stopped working. I have tried a 2nd phone but not a new one so I am not 100% certain. ADSL works fine still. Telstra want to charge me 120 if I am wrong. So I may as well move to NBN now and bugger the phone fault hey ? NBN Plan: Have checked availability Exetel 500GB 25m /5m for 60 a month Local unlimited exetel phone 10 a month So much for savings they went on about but at least it is no more. Router/Modem People recommended this modem I like TPLink had no issues http://www.tp-link.com.au/products/details/?categoryid=219&model=TD-W8968#spec But I already have this model http://www.tp-link.com.au/products/details/?categoryid=219&model=TD-W8960N Neither mention NBN and I assuming mine will handle the extra upload ? Other question would be any chance trace routes could be better with NBN ? Mine could not be worse ( I have exchange within 1 KM ) ISI is a long trace with 2 dropouts why I limit my room to 8 cars I pretty sure that 250% upload increase should help with room ping/lag either way ? Anything else comes to mind please.
