good morning, I have been reading all the comments with regards to NBN connection and it seems all the bad reports we have heard about it are true. We are very happy with the speed and the usage of ADSL that we currently have with TPG. Unfortunately TPG told us we had to connect over to NBN and the box arrived yesterday and, of course , it wouldnt connect up. We would like to send it right back and continue using ADSL - but do we have 18 months before we have to change to NBN? Everything i have read seems to point to that, so is that correct? If not, how long can we continue using ADSL before we absolutely have to move over to NBN?

I have been reading these posts with interest. I had heard so many negative stories about how the NBN drops in and out and difficulties setting it up that we had decided we would prefer not to have it. We are very happy TPG customers of more than 10 yrs. Very happy with ADSL as well. However, TPG contacted and said we have no choice , we have to change to NBN. After constant phone calls and emails from TPG, we said 'okay go ahead'. The box arrived yesterday and my hubby was told to connect her up with the guidance of the TPG support on the phone. Nothing works. Great! Then told to turn off the internet overnight so TPG could see what the problem is. After reading the comments on this thread I realise that more than likely the problem is with the NBN connections in the street. They have rushed this through and made error after error. So here we sit connected back onto our ADSL and the NBN connection sitting in it's box.
