    iiNet is giving me the absolute shits. Almost a week without net service and god how many phone calls/time spent on the phone. Their tech service is non-existent and nothing like they where in their hayday. And this has not been the first issue either.
    After 18 years, I'm looking to move.

    Any recommendations for NBN? I have been seeing good reviews with Aussie Broadband.

    Aussie Broadband definitely gets most of the good reviews, I'm with MyRepublic and havent had any issues with them so have had no reason to switch to Aussie BB but thats where I will go after my contract ends.

    NBN is shit.

    ABB service is brilliant.

    I had faster ADSL than NBN when they hooked it up. So much wishy washy answer from NBN as I got every excuse why I went from 16 Mbps on ADSL to 1 Mbps on NBN.

    From the start I made it clear all responses are kept for parliamentary question time.

    8 weeks later I write to the Minister. I get better answers but still wishy washy.

    Fire off questions and emails responses in a table format.

    Next minute NBN is on my verge/street right back to the box. I'm at 35Mbps and advised once off the coexistence period it will double again.

    Doesn't matter who your rsp is... they cannot guarantee a speed. They don't own the network.

    Ask the questions...I bet you don't get an answer.

    Amen to that. This is my second NBN issue this week as a technician decided to swap my connection with someone else.
    iiNet customer service to resolve this is issue is damn frustrating as it took me 3x phone calls on Sunday for iiNet to finally acknowledge it was a line issue and not my modem then another 3 days of them telling me it is fixed when clearly it was not.
    And I'm still experiencing drop-outs when it was perfectly fine before.

    That's just the very short version of the many many hours on the phone.
    You contact NBN Co. and they just wipe their hands advising it's the ISP's issue.

    Found a Telstra document explaining why FTTN is not broadband. All the science behind it and why the government should not do NBN.

    In the same document Telstra highlights all the issues that will occur and again the science behind it.

    It then goes to say they will drop the NBN programme and concentrate on 5G technology.

    They also say how the NBN infrastructure will be out of date by the time its installed.

    Not sure how the Minister will respond to these questions....which will be quoted and attached as enc.

    Fuck you NBN for forcing me to switch over.

    Telstra finishes getting paid its $9bn for putting in the NBN in 2020... guess what comes out in 2020 from Telstra - 5G cant bring it out now will not get its final payments from the govt - its was trialed at the Comm Games this year with great success .

    TLS cut its dividend for the first time ever and put that $1bn a year into growth ...which is 5G

    A $200 box that through wireless blaa blaa technology that can produce 10 x the speed of the NBN

    So right after NBN becomes available in my suburb 5G will be available.........
    I already use 4G at home, the other option is 2Mbps ADSL. Seems reasonable for a suburb 5kms from the CBD in 2018.

    When the net was out, I was able to use the personal hotspot on my iPhone and connected wireless to the PC.
    Surprised to get a ping of ~90 on 4G!!

    5G at the comm games was bloody fantastic, no dropouts and coverage was great all over the Gold Coast.
    Other night back in Perth at a concert and you think your could get coverage?

    Bring on 5G
