dejadeadnz: I've pretty much accepted that we'll never be able to get fibre unless two people on our cross-lease of 6 properties sell up some time soon and that's unlikely. 4 of the houses here REALLY, REALLY want fibre and (I wasn't there when these things occurred - going off second hand info from my partner and the other fibre-keen households) Chorus have said that if we want fibre, the two "hold outs" will need to cooperate and allow some work to go on their properties but they, ahem, won't play nice. If we are prepared to allow certain work to go on in common areas of the cross-lease, Chorus will play along but there might be extra costs (apparently not significant but I am purely speaking from our perspective) but one of the households that is keen gets to have their own house courtesy of a parent who is one of the holdouts/objectors, so certainly won't vote in the body corporate for us. My partner is also too concerned with being neighbourly so we just aren't gonna get anywhere.


Everyone has a price.  It can be as simple as the other leaseholders mowing their lawns more.

solaybro: Nice, what profile are you on?


17a....


Your probably right. I would like to see chorus offer a 30a profile, though I don't know how many people would actually be able to obtain a profile like that.


Our copper quality wouldnt stand a chance. So probably under 100m




So I guess that rules you out...wink

Yep.... pretty happy :)


That's brilliant! I decided to do another test tonight based on that result + Netflix not loading. My speed from 11 days ago is in my sig, this is my speed now...



Bit of a joke... :-(

No, nothing downloading. Just found I can't actually log into UnoTelly (which could be related to my Netflix problem) - getting "502 bad gateway" error.

Edit: getting worse. Time for some scanning and a reboot.

What stuff downloading that you require 2 lines? Surly you could just max out one overnight.

This is mine.  I'm probably within 100m of the cabinet.  The cable to the house is likely to be fairly old tho', as I'm in one of the oldest houses in this part of town.

Ouch. Sorry to hear - hope you can get that fixed.

Just to make some of you guys even more jealous:



Hate on me now :)
