    Tks 960
    On average, I'm looking at 36 Megabits/sec download
    and
    677 kilobits/sec upload

    1/3 of the ISP quote
    What are you guys getting?
    Down in Australia, the net is always slow

    Wow! We are never going to see that speed in Australia, we have the slowest internet on the planet apparently

    Have your speeds improved yet, MiniD3?
    I'm living in Queensland, slightly south of Brisbane, with Optus cable.
    I just did a test and got 100/2.
    I can't complain at the download speeds but the upload speeds are shocking.

    Hi there,
    not really, since starting the thread, have been having a huge argument with Telstra, pretty much destroyed my initial contract, after the cooling off period, and since the 14th March, still not resolved, in fact, gone from zero charges to over $600!, we have spent about 20 hours on the phone already trying to fix the problem, even brought the wife to tears,
    at the moment, all bad, will try again after Easter so far Optus is looking better!

    Gosh, I can understand why you'd both be frustrated. It's ridiculous.

    Not much change today
    Would even think of an app for the iPhone, my iPhone is a 3Gs
    Still living in the stone age! :) Maybe sometime this year for an upgrade
