We're connected to the interwebs via dial-up wireless glass oxygen-free copper coated phishing nylon using 8G technology.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I've got fibre.  I'm staying with the in-laws at the moment.  Buying their house in a couple of months when they move out, so moved in here with my wife a few months ago to stop paying rent and save some $$.  Father-in-law has Spark 100/20 on one port of the ONT, I have Orcon 100/20 on another port.  When they've moved out I'll go back to gigabit.

Not sure if @scottjpalmer can get internet out in the middle of his paddock.

 

 

He's hardly ever in his paddock. Or NZ.

A friend of mine has just had his internet moved from Spark ADSL2 (!!) to Spark Fibre (100/20).... he mentioned he didnt really notice much difference except when everyone is hammering it streaming video.

I've had fibre for last 18 months or so but just moved to the middle of a paddock so 4G is my friend.

VDSL address checker says I'm just in the zone but I'm sceptical. And I would have to dig a trench.
