Re: how is Telstra increasing internet speeds by turning a modem on and off

Depends on the technology type.

With DSL based technologies: It allows the connection to re-train and potentially get a higher sync speed

With Telstra HFC: The modem re-downloads the boot file that defines what its speeds are

With NBN in general: the modem re-negotiates with the BNG and redownloads the config file which both dictate what speed tier its on
