joker97: As in, does voda use a different wire from big pipe?


I thought you were pulling my chain.
Lol, No. I know the bigpipe line has got bad joins (wet pillar for 2 years).
Since i got 17a on the Vodafone one i dropped the bigpipe connection as no need to load balance.

Cheers

You know you could call in as a member of the public and get a technician sent out to evaluate and repair the broken pillar.

My VSDL for big pipe is on what was my slingshot connections adsl line. downstream is about the same as adsl2 was at 17ish, upstream is an amazing 3 and a bit megs. Snap on my other pair is giving 20.something down and 10 up.

Flatmates snap connection is about the same as mine.

Im going to replace the cable from demarc to my sockets with cat6 before I get bigpipe onto chorus about it. Im only gaming on the bigpipe connection sometimes as it cant use unotelly with the CG nat.

PTM

What does a fritz being a fritz mean?
