TPG customer here these past years and they've been solid. Some iTunes HD movies buffer if I try to watch straight away. Giving it a few minutes before watching always enables interruption free viewing. Buffering less an issue when renting movies through Sony (Sony bluray player) so it can be vendor dependant as well as ISP. Happy unlimited internets.

So you managed to download the Star Wars demo which is 7ish gigabytes. Has the tech fixed everything up?

Yeah, max download speed I can get based on Speedtest is around 7.5mbs.

I'm with Internode and I was approached by a Telstra sales dude today....and I'm more than tempted because I'm sick of the uneven speed I've been getting in this place.

Problem is, I can't get NBN where I am and I would expect another provider wouldn't be any better.

I've had massive issues with Telstra recently and their inability to fix faults but I am no where near the NBN and construction won't start for another 3 years so thinking won't get it for at least another five if I stay in my current suburb. Was thinking of switching to iinet but don't see the point if they are using Telstra hardware. Wish I still lived in Asia where the speeds are orders of magnitude faster than what I have now.

To get better internet speeds all I had to do was move house. ;)

You are better off going to a shopping mall and using the free wifi to download porn than subscribing to isp. Australia is primitive caveman's island where we are 50 years behind everyone technologically.

By the time we have decent internet other countries will have cyborg implants and access the information direct to thier brains and control the drones with thier fucking minds so they can order pizzas while camping in the bushes or going out fishing. Your dick will control the cursor onscreen (no need for touchpads) and your wristwatch/phone (similar to dick tracey) will be able to project holograms onto the street to blow up the image larger for presentation.

Socialism is holding us back. The illuminati is trying to halt technological progress to make us thier niggers while they explore space and rule over us from the heavens with the aliens.

Anyone else had issues with iinet and xbox live connections? Since December I haven't been able to keep a connection it keeps connecting and reconnecting randomly, usually around prime time in the evening when I guess the majority of users are on. It's fucking annoying.

Nah iinet has been alright for me. Both at my new place and old place.

Just recently moved to my new place, now on NBN 109 bucks a month with 1TB cap. Speed is meant to be 100mbs, speed test done through tablet, so hoping its better once wired up.

Was on cable at my old place and close to the exchange, there i could get up to 130mps on a good day.

Thinking of changing ISPs as E-Wire/Fuzenet have the worst customer service I've ever experienced. I'm only with them because they had the contract with the estate, so when I built my house they hooked us up for free, free TV and network ports etc. Our first three months after they hooked us up were also free. And my free-to-air TV is also with them via their underground cables. It's all fibre-to-the-home.

But ... True, fibre-to-the-home NBN is also available...

I should also point out I'm on a 25/5 plan so it's not like I'm paying for speed I'm not getting :)

TPG's product is solid enough when it's installed and running but as with most modern outsourced service centres talking to them is like pulling teeth. We moved house and it takes 20 mins of hold music and script questions I've already answered to do basic stuff like leave a message for a case manager. Installations at new addresses are especially painful as it requires Telstra who obviously assign non-Telstra customers a CGAF priority. We had our install scheduled 3/2, arranged to have someone at home as instructed and I get a call at the end of the day saying Telstra didn't do it because their techs had to be reassigned to service an outage. Their next earliest was 12/2. I asked if it could be earlier given the inconvenience and I think I heard Telstra laughing from here.

Slightly off topic, my Telstra mobile plan expired a few months ago and I decided to lower my unlimited plan...I shouldn't need it. I pay $100 per month/unlimited calls and text etc, with 3GB data. I took a look at their plans on the website and the same plan is $70 per month with 10GB data. But wait, if you're a new customer, the same plan is only $60 pm. Well that just made me angry. Why would you have a policy that clearly states that new customers get more for less but loyal existing customers get less for more?

After being shunted from call centre to call centre which I guess I can count as a world tour, ( and a sample of being a teacher, having had to explain what a hyphen was) I finally ended up talking to a girl in Adelaide. She gave me that unlimited $70/10GB plan for $60 pm with 11GB of data.

Here's what she told me. If you want to deal with someone in Australia (which I never asked for before anyone accuses me of anything-and the call centres usually cannot go off script, so it's generally better if you do) ask for Disconnections. Disconnections are based here and they can handle any enquiry.

Aussie plans are way over priced, even more so than NZ when I paid $30NZD for 2.5gb of data, unlimited texts throughout NZ and Aussie and 200 mins of calls anywhere, any mobile in NZ or Aussie and had unlimited rollover. So if I didn't use my minutes for 3 months on the 4th month I'd have 800 mins.

Here in UK I get 2gb data, unlimited texts and 500 mins for £12 ($24aud). For another £3 I could have an iPhone 6S on a 24month plan.

5-6yrs ago and NZ had some of the most overpriced plans in the world but now they're some of the most attractive. The free international calling, text and rollover is a fucken winner.

Make sure when moving you see who owns infrastructure where you're going. Where I am moving to it is all owned by Telstra... I'm moving from unlimited cable, home phone and fetchtv for $80 a month to 1000gb some home phone for $100 per month.
