NBN

I have just connected to the NBN and though I've paid for "speed boost" I am only getting a maximum of 32 Mbps download speed and 8 up.

I contacted Telstra and was told it can take up to 24 hours for the connection to reach its maximum download speed, is this correct?

I am about 400 meters from the nearest node, the next nearest is around 700 metres away, I realise this will play a factor in the download speed available.

Was this helpful?

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

Re: NBN

If you aren't connected to the closest node, then those speeds are probably correct. When you log in to your modem at http://10.0.0.138 and go to the broadband tab, what does the Maximum Sync Rate say?
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 check your modem stats via http://10.0.0.138 > Advanced > Broadband or Advanced > Gateway Settings > Device Info > General > down the bottom, it will give you your maximum line rates possible with your connection. If they are significantly less then 100/40, you could drop down to a 50/20 boost or back down to 25/5

 

You may be 400m to the nearest node, but your cable path may not be. Your downstream attenuation can give you a very rough indication of how far you actually are in cable length to the node you're connected to

Re: NBN

You are lucky you paid for the boost otherwise on occasions your connection would function below that of ADSL

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.
