Actual achievable speeds

Is there a way to find out what actual max NBN speeds are achievable at my house? No point paying extra for a 100mbps plan if the max obtainable speed is 25mbps.

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Actual achievable speeds

If you have a FTTP service you should be able to achieve 100/40

If you have a FTTN service it depends on distance from the Node and cable quality. See graph below.

Graph of FTTC speed versus distance from the street cabinet

I don't know what you will get over cable.

If you have fixed Wireless maximum is 12 - 50 M

Well FTTN is going to suck big time

 

Im already at the 2 - 2.8km range and from what I seen thats not even a guarantee if they decide to move the node Smiley Sad 

 

with upto 5 comps and  3-4 phones on we'll be no better than on the ADSL might as well save the money Smiley Sad

Re: Actual achievable speeds

Just get connected at the base speed (25Mbps for Telstra). Then, once connected, log in to your modem and look at the connection stats for Maximum Sync Rate. This will tell you what your line is capable of. Then order any speed boost.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

If you are lucky, you may be getting FTTdp (Fibre to the distribution point) a.k.a Fibre to the Curb. 

 

Distribution point is much closer to your house, therefore the length of copper wire to your hosue is  reduced compared to FTTN.

 

Not sure how reliable FTTdp will be.

 

FYI. NBN is trialling FTTdp in Sydney and Melbourne.

@W201 Well according to NBN Roll Out map

 

they got now 10 months to get the FTTdp (Fibre to the distribution point) working right

 

for mine and my eldest sons sanity

 

I feel sorry for the poor buggers that will be trialing and erroring the technology...
