NBN speed

Level 2
Hi, I have recently connected NBN and as per my plane Maximum speed my address can receive = 109Mbps
Maximum speed of the NBN50 plan i have chosen = 50Mbps.
But unfortunately as per speed test, the download speed is 19.6mbps and upload is 3.0 mbps.
Not Happy me 🤭

@hemrajghaley the speed test result is indeed slow for the plan and type of technology used to deliver NBN.


Have you tried switching off the wireless and connecting a PC directly to the modem for testing purposes? Sometimes the devices connected to the network and the gadgets or structure around us affect the wireless connection speed.


Kind regards,

Hi Joseph,

Thanks for the mail, mine is FTTC nbn connection not HFC nbn connection so I guess may be because of this my internet speed is low. Do I need to do HFC nbn connection for better internet speed? Please suggest me.

Kind regards

Switching to a different type of NBN Technology is not possible @hemrajghaley. There  can only be one type of NBN technology that can be rolled out in a certain area. 


Nevertheless, I can have one of our Technical team to contact and assist you to check what's causing the low download speed. 


Could you please send your best contact time & number via private message so we can organise a call back to be made for you? 


We'll wait for your response.

Thanks for the mail, I will be home on Sunday March 24,2019 (whole day) and on Monday March 25,2019 from 12 pm if you would like to send the technician.


Hi @hemrajghaley


We have requested for a Sr Technician to call you on Sunday.


Be reminded though that we are not sending a technician out since we're not detecting any issues with the network. Instead, someone will call you to assist you over the phone to check why you're getting a slow connection.


In addition, I suggest that you try testing the speed of your connection with computer/laptop connected directly to the modem to determine if the problem you're having is WIFI-related only. If the connection speed is good with a device connected using ethernet cord, then, I suggest you check this link on how to improve your WIFI speed.
