I signed up to TPG and was promised 50mbps.

less than 2 weeks later receive a letter saying at best, I'll get 12 mbps, but I get a $10 credit to offset the inconvenience...….

Go and get farked...you slimy dingwing knob feckers.

Talk about marketing hype and crap.

Bailed out and am going wireless giving me at least 25mbps.

Another gubberment feck up.
Seriously who of you fools are voting for these clowns???

I signed up to TPG and wasn't promised anything. I looked at my local mudmap and by estimates I would get max 38 mbps, so signed up for 25.  A year later I still get approx 23 mbps, the same as when I joined.

Our TPG was connected last week at the supposed 44.5 Mbps plan. But the speed is all over the shop. The best we have ever done is 38 and this morning it is 0.61. When you sign up they insist that you waive your rights under the government's Performance Guarantee. Now I can see why.

And that is why I gave TPG a miss.  You still have full rights with Aussie.

Have you tried turning your modem off for a few minutes and back on?

What type do most people have ?

Who has fiber to the kerb and your experiences ? The upper mountains got Fiber to the node and are having all sorts of issues, we are supposedly getting it to the kerb next year.

I dont vote, got an exemption because I'm too old and cynical

Must admit I am much happier since I left Telstra and went to Aussie, no issues and they keep you well informed

Well after several weeks, we still have very poor internet, it drops out randomly and will give 5 mins of nothing about 6 - 10 times a day that we notice.
Although it is a bit better then last week, at my insistence, a guy came out and pinged the lines, found a few faults and sorted them and showed me on the flash new TDR they use. he said it is all good to the ..... (The something or other) but the exchange is now the fault and there is no known date for it to be sorted.
The old cable system was better still, we apparently are on an automatic system which logs the drop outs of service and self reports to save us calling the sods in the Philippians all the time.
Oh, and the phone line is still crap, which did work well before.
Can't help but think the money spent on this rubbish would = the cost of a high speed rail from Brissy to Melbourne with a few stops on the way, something like a TGV train, and I bet it would work a lot better.

I've got FTTP 100/40mbs since I could get it years ago. First in the street. Installers were mediocre to say the least. I'd done half the work to make it easy for them and it still took the over 5 hours. Best I managed at the start was 96mbs, now about 90-92 mbs. Any problems have been sorted out quickly and there hasn't been many. Had tried some small providers, TPG, Dodo back in the old days with dial up and ended up with Internode. Kept them when I switched to NBN. Maybe not the cheapest but why change when I'm happy.

Internode was bought by iinet which was bought by TPG.  Glad you are happy with TPG  ;D

hows that work?

Interesting that out of Optus, Telstra, TPG, Aussie.. only Telstra says they can do Fibre to the premises

Telstra... Great news! You can connect to the nbn™ network via Fibre to the Premises technology.

Well, we still have SFA compared to the old system.
3 guys have come out now to apparently fix it, but no results as yet, still slower (when it works) then before and they don't know why. We have friends 3 streets over that have NBN working very well.
So we asked to swap back to how it was until they fix the issue, no chance.
I tried to watch the all4adventure show just now, 5 mins in and it drops out. 1 drop out per hour is the average.

Yea I'm with Optus at moment, have been 18odd years, Sydney and Melb, and also in a few houses.. never really had an problem - except for late payment of account while on holidays.. If I could get same with them as Aussie, I'd consider staying, but currently my uploads are ****in hideous - on 25 plan... gettin 22/4 :(

But wondering if I can get better with Aussie... Like the 100 plan but dont think I really need it

Didn't get a choice. Last Christmas our internet just suddenly stopped working. After many phone calls it was revealed that our carrier at the time had conveniently forgotten to advise us that we had to switch to NBN.
Anyways, 12 months on I cannot really tell the difference to be honest, and my phone on 4g at home seems just as quick (wifi off, just in case smart a's make a joke). Would dearly love to do away with it altogether in truth.
