    Hermie, depending on how disappointed you are with your current Bigpond service and how keen you are to get way better speeds and service for a similar monthly fee, it might be worth looking at paying the penalty and getting out of your contract early if you don't have long to go.
    I think it's a cancellation fee of $360 pro rated for the months remaining on your contract term.

    So does Optus. I think they call it traffic though.
    Speedtest.net got me at:
    Down: 3131 kb/s
    Up: 244 kb/s

    Which is optusnet cable. The up fits quite nicely, as I believe its meant to be at 256. But the down would be fairly variable. I suppose if I tried the test again late at night tonight itd probably have better results.

    Well I'm just assuming that. I find it very hard to believe that I could've downloaded over 36 GB last month.

    Youtube and torrenting does use a lot of bandwidth...

    I use at least 60 gigs a month, with me actively watching my usage. Unfetered, i'd use 100-200 gig...

    I don't think 39 gig is all that large.

    Optus cable DOES NOT COUNT UPLOADS, but you do agree to their AUP which in reality means if you upload more than about 1.5x your monthly downloads they contact you to instantly stop.

    Until I connected two more computers to the internet I didn't really notice any bottlenecking. Now it's really obvious. As soon as someone looks at Youtube, for instance, just refreshing a page on this forum is an excruciatingly slow process.

    Getting four times the bandwidth for the same monthly fee in conjunction with balancing the load (via QoS on the Billion modem/router) should fix that problem.

    Until then we'll stick it out. For all I know the contract has expired already. It's more a matter of finding out if Internode has installed the ADSL2+ enabling DSLAM at the local exchange by now, or if the 'shipping' date has slipped Micro$oft style.

    QoS is a farse. Get a router with IP Rate limiting, and limit the total uploads of every IP to 10KB/s. Then turn on QoS.

    You won't even notice that anyone else is using the connection.

    Thanks for the information. The problem is with the downloads when the available bandwidth is used across three computers simultaneously. Uploads can be regulated with software. I have a router/modem, and am not about to buy another. I'll check with the manufacturers if it supports IP rate limiting or if a firmware upgrade will provide one.

    I got one of those a while back.
    The only reason I thought they were is because My HDD hasn't registered an increase even close to 32 GB, and further that I tend to upload more than I download (so says utorrent stats).

    I'm on the TPG ADSL2+ Heavy 30GB Plan for $59.95 a month.

    I am using a D-Link DSL-200 modem which only goes up to 6.1 Mbps, instead of the projected ADSL2+ speeds of 24Mbps.

    So my results:

    Download Speed: 4717 kbps
    Upload Speed: 408Kbps

    and the other one:

    ADSL 2+ is nowhere near 24 Mb/s in order to get anywhere near 20kb/s you have to live inside the exchange.

    the realistic expectation from ADSL2+ is between 7 to 5 Mb/s, more if you live within a very short distance of the exchange.

    I pay $70 a month and get 60 gigs of downloads at 1.5mb/s I could get ADSL 2 for the same price, but my exchange doesn't have any Telstra ADSL2+ DSLAM's.

    I'm with telstra - unlimited on a 17mb/s download rate. I'm only paying $39.95 on a 12 moth contract. I have had one bad customer expereince with telstra when the internet dropped out but other than that - i'm happy.

    Download Speed: 1381 kbps (172.6 KB/sec transfer rate)
    Upload Speed: 230 kbps (28.8 KB/sec transfer rate)

    Have been back on a 1500/256 plan for about 6 months now, I really miss the uncapped cable plan (30mb/3mb).

    i'm guessing you get about 10-20 gigs of downloads at that price...

    I would be far from happy with that...

    Not bad with the upload. What a waste, I don't even use torrent.

    What plan would that be, as it's definitely not in the brochure (unless of course you pay for anything over 200mb of traffic)?

    The only one that suits what you described is a cable plan (17mb/s download):
    Plan: Extreme 200MB Allowance: 200 MB Excess usage: $150 /GB Upload data: Counted I.P: Dynamic Monthly cost: $39.95 /mo

    If your ISP doesn't count uploads or get funky about excessive uploads the way Smelly was talking about, it looks like it could be really worthwhile and painless to seed legal torrents if you can.


    Here was mine.
    Download Speed: 6199 kbps (774.9 KB/sec transfer rate)
    Upload Speed: 318 kbps (39.8 KB/sec transfer rate)

    I'm with Internode in Sydney on the uncapped ADSL1 thingy
