NBN Maximum line rate less than half it use to be

Works in Kelmscott and wondering if vibration might have effected my line rate, it use to be around 64Mbps as 800 meter from the Node, now its 11 Mbps. What can I do as also experiencing dropouts for a week and Telstra are only monitoring when there is an issue that needs action

Re: NBN Maximum line rate less than half it use to be

There is a fault on your line as the Actual Line Rate is showing as faster than the maximum line rate.


Telstra monitor the line as that is a requirement of NBN Co's before they will accept the works request to get it fixed.

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

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
