Where can I see NBN speed my neighbours getting? I am in the Fixed Wireless area and would like to see if the speed could be better then my ADSL2.

Re: NBN speed statistics

Well, I just went through this with my in-laws... There is no other way than order from ISP of your choice and wait for NBN technician to come and do the survey... In this case, my in-laws are about 2.4km from the tower... According to the map, there should be signal... The same for their neighbours 300m closer to the tower, but 100m down the see level... To cut it short - the neighbours could not get anything, and my in-laws got reasonable signal... Well, they are getting 50Mbps down and about 5Mbps up...

My point is that unless you get NBN technician to come and do the survey, you won't know... In the case above, the highest point of the house did not have sufficient signal, but about 12 meters to the side (still part of the house - porch roof) there was good signal... But they will need to make sure they keep their hedge at current height...

Unless you are really friendly with your neighbours and they are happy to give it to you, forget it... No one else will tell you... It's all about privacy!!! How happy would you be about your neighbours knowing about your connection?

Re: NBN speed statistics

I was after some sort of average statistics for the area. I do not want to detail data for each house. Even if I knew exact speed my neighbours are getting I would not be able to achieve the same. It depends on location pretty much with all trees and uneven terrain in my area. Houses are hundreds of meters apart. Other option to get the equipment from some provider for a couple of days and test it. This not going to be a cheap option I guess.

Re: NBN speed statistics

to find out what your neighbour NBN speed is ask your neighbour to open their website on their computer inside their house and type in broad speed test is one way,

 

Second is via the modem advanced feature usually by going through the gateway Ip Address 10.0.0.138 or 192.168.0.1 by typing it in the webpage but you must be on their computer.

 

You will see number of features once shows your download and upload line speed and then the actually speed reaching your modem.

 

The speed you will get to your computer depends on the age of the network card or wi-fi device is and the speed rate its capable of handling ie 75mb for 2000 old network card  compared to 1300 ac Wi-Fi D-Link 2018 device which give you maximum speed of 1300MB as well as what plan your signed up to IE 100mbps / 20 mbps on FTTN you will get any way between 68 mbps to 90 mbps downloads to 16.43mbps to 18.95mbps uploads regardless of time of day or night on current NBN and regardless of which carrier your with.

 

unless you specially pay fee for independent specialist who does a wi fi check of how many connections are in your area and what speeds they are receiving you will never know from telecoms cause that goes to their internal workings and that protected under this government.

 

Other than that everything else is by illegal methods.
