NBN100 FTTB Dropping and <2Mbs when connected

Level 2

Sooooo.....super unimpressed with NBN and TPG.


My apartment building in inner Melbourne has been enabled for NBN recently with FTTB and I have been connected for about a month. It wasn't bad at first, but now I have been experiencing days of the service dropping out and ranging between 1-5Mbs in the short periods is it is up.


Have tried everything including restarting the modem and all other sh!t the house - I've worked in the tech sector for decades so know my way around comms tech and am positive it's nothing in the apartment or any of the router config (nothing has been changed).


I am really f@cking disappointed with myself for jumping on the bandwagon of the half-arse broadband solution this backwater country and its points-scoring governments have slapped together - should have stayed with ADSL - Even at 12mbs it was at least reliable.


Also disappointed for going with TPG - I recall in the early 2000s these guys were great and groud-breaking with their offerings - now they are obviously have become just another bulk distributor providing the lowest cost options for support under their obligations.


***Postscript*** After sitting on hold to TPG phone support for 30 minutes, some offshore minion finally answered then pretended to not be able to hear me and promptly dropped the call - I am absolutely seething with fury right now and will be contacting the ACCC over this crap service.

Here is another speed test - 1Mbs down but 10mbs up - more proof something is wrong at the node or further along the TPG/NBN line
