The Eng has contacted me and tried to convenience me that the issue is w/ my plan the 10MB/s download and 1MB/s upload Unlimited NBN plan.


I told her that the 1MB/s upload is more than enough as I do not upload anything and just the acknowledge packets are sent, which are peaking at max 20-30KB/sec.


Anyway, she told that if I reach the 1MB/s upload limit, then o any new connection would be initiated which can cause the issue. 


I told, it can the case only if my one or some of my devices are uploading something without my knowledge, so I told her that I will check. In addition, I wanted to upgrade my plan anyway, so I upgraded it to the 50MB/s NBN Plan today afternoon which was applied before I came home (I have tested the speed on the new bandwidth).


But, this has not fixed the issue, and when I was testing the DNS query when I got home, it took 6secs to respond and my only device whihc was connected to the Internet used only 215 Bytes/secs bandwidth on the newly applied 50MB NBN plan.


So the issue still exists, therefore pls forward it to the Engineer. I would say that some TCP and/or UDP packets are lost on the way. The issue can be the router, or the noisy cabling or anything. So, that would be nice if I could have a used another brand of NBN router for testing, just to be sure that the issue is not w/ the modem.

Or a technician could come onsite w/ some tools to test noise on the wire that goes down to Main Distribution Room.
