NBN Speed

Answered

We have just been switched over to NBN with Telstra. I do not see much difference in speed I was getting anywhere up to 20mpbs on ADSL2 and now on NBN getting 23. If I was to go up to the next plan 50 - would it then try to get higher speeds or is 23 the highest Im likely to get ? Does this make sense ? Smiley Frustrated

Re: NBN Speed

If the NBN connection is FTTN it depends on the maximum speed of the VDSL link. This can be checked by log in to gateway/modem router using a web browser and viewing the line details.

 

Default IP address http://10.0.0.138 or http://192.168.1 or http://192.168.0.1
Default user name and password
admin/admin or
admin/password or
admin/blank (no password)

 

On the F@st 5355 click on advanced, click on gateway settings, Click on Device Information and then scroll down to xDSL.

In the example below the maximum speed is 40 Mb/s down and 6.4Mb/s. If the plan was changed to the 50/20 the maximum speed would be 40/6.8.

The speed is also effected by network congestion so in peak periods it might be less than 40/6.8

That shows the maximum speed your VDSL link is capble of is  65 Mb/s down and 31 Mb/s up so if you went to the 50/20 speed boost you should get 50 Mb/s down and 20 Mb/s up provided there is no congestion.
