Ok, looks like we are back to the same situation as before.  If one was cynical one would think that once the customer is satisfied then then speed is throttled back.  Is the NBN 'pipe' so congested that ISP's are resorting to this?   Maybe ISP's get a kick back from NBN to reduce speeds?

- if it was a highway the road width would vary from bicycle lane to multi-lanes :_)

> aren't we lucky that the NBN is not major infrastructure like a highway !?!  Robot Mad [as the LNP has pushed]

+ 3rd party tech, ran all the tests, line all good, can see 'that I am not getting what I paid for' with download speed

So back to me to proove that TPG are throttling the download at the server end?

Maybe the modem (Arris CM8200) needs replacing to see if that is at fault?

Hi @garythomann13

 

Recent update on the ticket indicated that the assigned Engineer has been in touch with you and is now waiting for the NBN Tech's report regarding today's visit.

 

Furthermore, TPG is a reseller of NBNco therefore we have to operate within the constraints of the NBN network. We do not throttle speeds specially if you are under an unlimited plan. 

 

The assigned Engineer will be in touch again for further updates to discuss the connection issue. 

 

 

Regards,
