Just had techies out again the other day to repair our line, every time we get rain after a dry spell we either lose our phone and internet ir it gets really noisy (phone) and extremely slow (internet). There’s 5 pits and about 300m of copper between us and the closest node. That’s still at least five failure points (not counting the connections on and in the house) as well as the actual copper itself which tends to corrode big time around here.
at 7:15pm I’m getting somewhere between 2-6Mbps upload and 3-5mps download.
I’m on Telstra 4GX which is pretty good but during peak times speeds can be variable. I sometimes get 30Mbps down but I have to share the bandwidth with my neighbours, the cunts.
It’s expensive tho and I don’t have any real alternatives.
