Very unstable internet speed

Level 2



Since I got connected to the NBN, the connection speed and connection were very stable.


But from this weeks, the internet connection keeps dropping out for a few minutes and then it gets  re-connected. When I open the website,it is always can't open it . I have check the speed many times in a few minutes, sometimes is 50Mbps, and next is 0.8Mbps.

I have restarted the NBN modem and router few times. It is VERY important I have a stable internet connection so I can work from home using the Zoom app please.










Hi  @wwanjun ,


There are different types of dropouts that you may experience:


1. Network dropouts, this dropout is caused by a line fault on TPG or NBN's network. Affecting all device(s) LAN/Wireless connected to the modem/router this may require a real-time test and investigation by our Technicians and Engineers.


2. Wireless dropouts, this issue only affects the device(s) connected via Wi-Fi which can easily be fix by doing adjustment to the modem/router's settings.


3. Dropouts caused by ongoing outage in your area. 


In the event that you experience dropouts via Wireless/Wi-Fi connection, we recommend having a read on the following articles:
