All I can get is 25mbps. And thats on a copper line only six years old. My last place had a 20 year old line and I was getting 50mpbs. The aussie network stinks.
Come to America Mate. I will show the very underside of that toilet. I pay very will for 6 up and 1.5 down , which I never get near, and they tell me they are doing me a great service. :caution:

Nice!

Nicerer!

We will only be able to dream of speeds like that in Australia, the federal government have no plans to upgrade what is in their eyes, cutting edge technology. :meh: :wtf:
Not sure about the TurtleMan but I can tell you how fake my numbers are. I'm with AT&T and my real numbers are below. I see what you are getting and feel envious Mate. I pay $60 USD for the pleasure. :caution:

I thought you had got onto a better plan with that downtime you had, those figures are horrendous. I had similar speed when my phone line got damaged by a linesman in the service pit when I was on ADSL2+.

I'm supposed to be getting gigabit speeds for my $114 a month :caution:
Bloody hell, that's bad...
I'll trade you Mate. I pay about $10 a meg and you pay about $.40? I get 170Gb data allowance. How about you? :lol:

AT&T, If you are listening. You SUCK!:wtf:
I am on 50 Mbps download and 20 Mbps upload, unlimited data, voip home phone, and a Fetch TV box for $80.00 a month plan with Optus.

I have been with Optus for nearly 15 years, they suck at times as well.

Sounds like a good plan to me Arctos. My phone and internet service is thru AT&T and doesn't include TV. I pay $120 a month. They can do it like that because they are the only game in town. I live in a little back water town of about 6000 residence.:caution:

The Fetch box is a PVR so you can run the free to air tv through it to record the adverts, it has 30 free movies a month, plus you can pay for the latest movies and tv series as an extra. Various channels at a price as well.

The box is the cupboard as we do not use it any more, as we have Netflix built into the tv's now.
