    $60 for 50/20, 500GB + unlimited offpeak = the sweet spot.

    I basically have this now and no regrets. telecube have been great

      I disagree, you pay an extra $9 a month and you get double the data and probably 25% more speed assuming not everyone can get 100/40mpbs on FTTN

        diminishing returns. i dont think many people use above 500gb during peak. netflix is quota free on telecube too. and i also dont think people see/care or can even obtain 100mbit speeds. I think for most homes/people the sweet spot is 50mbit and about 500gig.

          Only Quota free on certain plans (like mine and yours) unless things have changed recently

          Netflix is most certainly not quota free on TC (unless you're on an old contract).

          @Viper8:

          Got a feeling that xEnt and I are on the same old contact from the start of 2017, $54/month 50/20, 500Gb Peak (maximum 50Gb peak/day, 5Gb/hour in peak), Unlimited Off-Peak, quota free Netflix.

          Edit: I'd actually forgotten about Netflix being quota free… I wonder what our actual usage might be? I'm spouting off about using only 130Gb/month, but that's using the Telecube Portal numbers. Haven't checked my router logs in forever cause it's just not an issue on the radar!

      •  

        But your paying an extra $9 a month. What do you use the extra 500GB for?

      •  

        Just rub it in some more….
        Max line rate 34/10 here. Thanks Tony and Malcolm.

        •  

          Damn, I'm jealous. My max line speed is 19/5… and that's with NBN.

        •  

          @G3ck0: My folks are on 17/2.. and both Internode and Aussie have said nothing can be done till coexistence ends as it's above 12/1. Epic.

          Only advantage of them being on the NBN now is that they're no longer paying the 'Telstra tax' for being on a country exchange.

          @G3ck0:
          Have you looked into replacing your internal phone line?
          I saw a 30% improvement after replacing mine.
          Line length around 800m.

        •  

          @scubacoles: I haven't… does it cost much?

        •  

          @G3ck0:
          $200ish obviously depends on your house and how easy it will be to do.
          And only really worth doing if your house (and therefore phone line) is old, or if you have extension lines.
          VDSL doesn't like corrosion or extension lines.
          Ideally you'd have a single continuous line from Node to Modem.

          How do you know your maximum?
          Does it mean it does not matter the provider even if you choose 100/40 or 50/25, ur speed would be 34/10?

        •  

          @Edsanwong:
          Correct.
          Your Modem will tell you your maximum attainable line rate no matter what plan you're on.
          It will only sync at the plan speed or the maximum attainable (whichever is lowest).
          I'm on a 50/20 plan, but my Maximum Line Rate is 34/10 and that varies from day to day.
          On bad days it will dip down to 31/9.

        •  

          @scubacoles:
          Ok, when its going to be changed to above 50 or 60 or 70? Until the Govt change your copper line or until they build closer FTTN box to your house?

        •  

          @Edsanwong:
          Yeah, in my case the copper is crap.. I should be getting around 50/20 at my distance and actually was getting it for a few months.. then something changed, my line went to crap and NBN don't care.
          (and I'm not on a stability profile although my sync drops at least every week and occasionally multiple times a day and my internal line is already upgraded)

          The only resolution is for the copper to continue to get worse (quite likely) to the point that NBN are forced to do do something, at which point I'd probably be offered Satellite as I'm not metro and unlikely to be in range of a NBN Fixed Wireless area.
          Or for me to pay for a Technology Choice change in the range of $15,000 to have fibre rolled out from the nearest NBN Fibre Distribution Point to my home. (Note that there is no such thing as a fibre upgrade from your node due to the way the nodes have been connected in the cheapest possible way)
          Or for me to switch to a non-NBN provider, most likely a 4G or 5G connection.

      Pay $5 more and you get double the speed.

      We've plenty of Fixed Wireless customers, perhaps head across to the Whirlpool forum and ask in our thread there.

      I have telecube for fixed wireless on 50/20 and the MAX I have ever gotten is around 35MBps. I do not believe this is telecube's fault as I had the same problem with my previous ISP. MY neighbours ( not with telecube) have the same issues. Some nights it slows down to the point where even streaming youtube is impossible. From what I've been able to figure out, I 'beleive' that NBNco has overprovisioned the tower and when the kiddies get home from school it slows down, then when everyone else gets home from work it gets even slower. Is worse on weekends and public holidays.

      TL:DR, if your neighbourhood is currently getting good speeds from your local tower then you should be right to go. If not, then expect no change. My tower was 'supposed' top be upgrade in the 2nd half of last year but I haven't noticed any improvement.

      I have fixed wireless and I've recently established a TC account. I've been doing some side by side comparisons with my current provider skymesh. I am generally around 37Mbps - 44Mbps with Telecube. There is some variation between the two services depending on the server location.

      Initially I was getting appalling speeds with TC. However, after an email and some problem solving they provisioned another port for me on my NBN service and the alternative port has been a ripper. I must say the technical support has been second to none and they have been consistently following up with me to check how my service is traveling.

      As such I can say I would very much recommend Telecube on fixed wireless. That being said I would also recommend Skymesh. However, TC price point at the moment is so competitive its hard to go past when you combine them with their customer service focus.

      I must say the only area they are let down is by lacking a fixed IP as standard (yes I know why and I get that most people will never need it) but for me its the one negative.

    How long does it usually take to get provisioned from ADSL2+ to FTTN?

    •  

      Roughly 2 weeks assuming no issues.
      The actual transposition should involve no more than 60 minutes downtime, however, you need to be careful not to have your ADSL modem still on line when the transposition occurs (unless it is also NBN FttN compatible and correctly configured to attempt to sync VDSL first).
      If you leave your ADSL modem connected, your port will be locked by NBN and might require 24 hours to be unlocked.

      I was provisioned in 8 days - signed up on the evening of 31st Jan and provisioned on 8th February. But YMMV.

    Any chance of doing a deal on Static IP or waving sign up fee?

    I think the 100/40 500gb plan at $65 is really great value, How are the speeds during peak tho ?

    •  

      Im on 25/5 from few weeks. A simple speedtest check gives 24/4pointsomething during peak hours.
      Has been consistent.

      Haven't dropped below 92/35 over the 2 weeks I've been with them.

      •  

        Shh don’t let the secret out. Our speeds might go down ;)

    •  

      Congestion is dealt with swiftly, usually within 24 hours.

    •  

      Yeah, we're 100/40 (though on a $69 plan) FTTP. Been as fast as every other provider we've used, zero issues.

    Been with Telecube for a few weeks now (coming from Aussie Broadband), and so far, Telecube speeds and pings are on par with Aussie (including during peak times).
