TPG FTTN NBN Speeds

Roughly three months have passed since connecting to NBN FTTN via TPG. I’m on the “up to” 100/40mbit plan. At a guess I’m ~500meters from the node. At this point I haven’t had any issues with the horrible speeds/congestion that some users report. FTTN sucks compared to FTTH for a ton of reasons that I won’t go into. The bottom line so far is that I’m more or less able to saturate the speed that I’m syncing up at regardless of peak/offpeak.

Speedtest.net result - Unusually high latency from the server on this result.
Speedtest.net result – Unusually high latency from the server on this result. I’ve seen much better results matching right to the sync speed.

Ahhh that's more like it!

2019 Update

Having all additional phone sockets unwired from the first phone socket/point of entry has resulted in a nice increase. The wiring was daisy chained from socket to socket, so it only had to be removed from the first socket/point of entry to be effectively disconnected. This removes a lot of additional noise from the line and thus an increase in sync rates and some differences in attenuation stats.
