Yes. Had Fibre 100/20 for the past two years and there have been no problems at all.

Spark Fibre has been solid for me for the 4 1/2 years I've been using it.  Only issue I had was when the voice component moved to the ONT, but that was a one-off, solved by an ONT reboot.  Otherwise can't fault it.

Zero issues on Spark fibre

Only downside is Geekzone takes slightly longer to load due to Cloudflare routing via HK

Ping is just fine - I have friends on 2D and to Australia they are typically 8 - 10ms lower. Not something you're likely to notice unless you're pretty hardcore. 😜
