So, the time as come...

 

 

 

Where i must say good bye to my beloved copper network...

 

Click to see full size

 

Such a complex setup being simpfied here... 

 

Two DSL modems in bridge mode, going through a Mikrotik (forget the model off the top of my head) doing transparent shaping and then routing all of that to the RB3011 above (thanks MM/Geekzone) where a PCC was being done.

 

This took me from a lowly 15/1 ADSL line, up to  35/2! i was on fire!

 

 

 

Years after that, eventually a Wisp came into the local area. Great guy that runs it, and given the terrain, i must say he has a tough job!

 

Although he struggled at first, fought with getting his network right to my location - Trees suck mkay... 

 

 

Eventually a solid 150/40 connection was delivered.

 

At this stage, i was gearing ready to start removing Copper connections (sorry chorus but your just not better... Physics hurt ya)

 

D-Day came upon the network, and all of this has been removed. oh what a clearner network it is! Sorry murphs, no burning of these modems.

 

can even Queue and Fasttrack on the RB3011 now! (PCC rules and those don't mix)

Now if only this would end with a hurrar for WISP's having awesome service, Truth is i'd be more than contempt but life moves on.

 

So hello fibre

Wifi test to chch, because why not.. gotta be fair to the competition right ;)

 

 

 

Have to say, for a network on a little RSP provided RGW to phone, Aint bad...

 

Bring on HyperFibre!

 

 

 

Only thing this all leaves me wondering... is what am i to monitor without DSL to query all day long...

Technically you missed all of them, since they're all broken :P

They are direct links to Dropbox images. Works fine here?

You just took me back to 2002!

 

Pre cabnetisation days where when ADSL was only from the exchange and if the customer went through a PCM cabinet due to distance ADSL was never going to fly, AND when wireless wasn't an option either due to terrain what was done was a Linux Router  (Think it was Pentium III four US Robotics Courier 56K Modems) were bonded to give a whopping 224k Down and 135K Up using the PPP Multilink Protocol

 

It was clutsy, unstable, and expensive to run both in capital and ongoing costs but do admire what is possible when location can be a challenge

Interesting; they work in Firefox but not in Safari. I'd wager that Dropbox is doing something a bit strange.

Oh what an unfortunate typo :-)

 

In any case, I'd start bugging your RSP about those speeds... that's not what you're paying for!

So glad you've got Fibre with a real ISP ;)

 

But, as you can see I edited your post because you uploaded all your images, in full size to Dropbox. I also had Photoshop open and because Dropbox made me download the images instead of simply viewing in the browser I did have a bit of fun. Please, think of those on capped or slow broadband and resize your images and host on Geekzone in future.

I hope it went to a good home (or museum).

mentalinc: I assume you're meaning the aussie users?


Mates in Melbourne regularly log off for the day if there is any mention of thunderstorms.

They’re all on nbn fibre to the node (copper to home) and right before thunder booms they’re cut off. One guy has overhead and still get cut if it’s too windy or raining.

Aus’s rollout really screwed the pooch, we’ve got it much better. Only disappointing part is they have all the datacentres due to population, even though we often get better connections than majority of the locals.
