For about a week now, our WIFI has been extremely slow and dropping our constantly. Not really great timing, with having to work from home and homeschool my kids.
Please find me a fix or I’ll have to cancel TPG and set up with Optus - ASAP!

Thanks so much David.
This has mainly been a problem for the past week. I’ve tried resetting the modem, to no avail.
Our current internet speed is 0.21mbps download, 2.61mbps upload.
It’s unworkable right now!

Hi @peaches81 

 

I have checked your NBN-FTTP 12/1 service on our systems.

FTTP is normally pretty reliable and all tests on our end are passing.

 

I think you are using an older NF-12 modem. It is pretty old now and would strongly suggest to use another modem which could fix your issue.


Also, A 12/1 plan with heavy household usage can appear slow at times because the 1meg upload speed becomes a bottleneck.
For heavy usages, a 50/20 plan will provide much more reliable speeds to heavy usage situations.

Here is a doc to help TS speed issues.
