    Any chance on discounted 50/20 plans anytime soon? Need to convince my parents to switch to Telecube NBN instead of Telstra…

  •  

    How is this company for online gaming?

    •  

      I've been with Telecube since Feb 2017 - EXCELLENT ISP.

      They do not offer "unlimited" internet so they do not suffer with chronic CVC congestion issues like many ISPs

      This is my current speed test http://www.speedtest.net/result/7137493874.png

      My speed always seems the same. I have seen it down as low as 70mbps in some peak times, but heck, I'm happy with that.

      Telecube are different, and better (for me).

      Played PUBG and Rocket League on Oceania and Asian servers withou issue.

      Been with them for around 2 months now, gaming is fine, sub 40ms pings for most games i play, though i have seen it go upto 60ms or so at times (lol, dota2, bf1, Destiny2)

      Can easily max out my connection during peak/off peak.

      Telecube backhaul = Vocus
      ABB backhaul = Telstra

      price reflects that.

      •  

        I moved to Telecube from Aussie BB as the pings outside of Oz was shit with Aussie

        •  

          I wouldn't have expected that but interesting.

          I moved my parents' FTTP from ABB to TC and moved back after 3 weeks due to very frequent dropouts and quite a few "maintenance" outages compared with abb. Rock solid and no drop outs with abb though.

          Parents watch international streams via an android box and find the abb experience better / more responsive.

        •  

          @FeZZa21:

          Telstra seems to have bad links to gaming servers, Which is what i was using them for.

          I was with Aussie BB for 2 months and had 2 drops outs. ( only reason i left was i felt the old double data was bait and switch, with the price hike)

          I been with Telecube now for 3 months and had 2 dropouts.

          I have FTTP and noticed that Node had the best speeds, with Aussie BB and Telecube about the same ( Still 90+/30+) for my area.

    Signed up $40 for 25/5 100GB - Can't complain …Yet !

    No setup fee might think about it

  •  

    HI OP can you help me? Signed up with you guys and requested start date as Friday… idiots at My Republic have processed an immediate cancellation instead of at end of paid for period as requested - we’ve emailed you guys asking if you can try to connect earlier (ASAP) but haven’t heard back yet?

    Any chance you can push it along?

    Wish there was no setup fee

  •  

    Is the modem free with deal? If not, how much? Tnx

  •  

    Also, what modems will be compatible with your service?

    • +1 vote

      Any NBN modem..
      Telecube use standard PPPoE authentication and don't use VLAN tagging which can trip up some modems.

      • +1 vote

        Any suggested models to look for? Perhaps on ebay or somewhere else.

        • +1 vote

          Telstra TG799vac is the best cheap modem if you don't need VoIP.
          Can pick them up for around $30 brand new.
          I use one myself (bridged to a proper router) and it's been excellent at extracting the best possible speed out of my shoddy copper.

          If you do need VoIP, then a TG799vac can be hacked to activate the VoIP ports for non-Telstra providers if you're partial to doing the work. Otherwise I have no suggestions.

        •  

          @scubacoles:

          Do modems for Telecube need to have VDSL2 ? A lot of supposedly nbn ready modems don't have this, they are only VDSL.

        • +1 vote

          @a744:
          All NBN FttN/FttB modems require VDSL2
          Modem requirements are specified by NBN, not ISP's, it's only for the rare ISP that uses VLAN tagging (Internode and Telstra being 2 I'm aware of) that need any sort of specialty modem on NBN outside of NBN's specs.

          Don't be fooled by "NBN ready" stickers that were printed back in the good old days when being "NBN ready" required only a WAN port on a router (no modem functionality required).

  •  

    signed up , @telecube Message sent to you asking some doubts.

  •  

    Been with telecube for the last 3 weeks and getting consistent speed all day. I had moved from skymesh because my line would drop to 3mb during peak times when usually it's 42mb. And the skymesh response to my support ticket was to go elsewhere ?!?!

    •  

      As an ex-Skymesh customer, I would say that's an appropriate move to consider :)

      I actually never had any issues with Skymesh, probably due to a mix of luck and being on FTTP but they became less competitive over time.

  •  

    Does anyone know what the shaped speed is (after hitting monthly limit)?

    How long does this promo run for ?

    Op, im with aussie bb hfc atm. How long does it take to switch over to telcube?

    •  

      hi, switching from abb hfc is problematic at the moment, we don't have a transfer process in place .. you will need to cancel first and then we order a new service.

      It can take from 2 days to 2 weeks .. it's really not a very good process.

      •  

        Hi rep, is there any fee for changing address? (say i sign up now then move to a different apartment later on)

      •  

        Are you serious? 2 days to 2 weeks? Oh my God!

        I should ask this question before I cancelled ABB service last Friday.

        My ABB cancellation will be from tomorrow morning and I will send you guys an email to let you know. Finger cross.

          I think most people get connected quite fast, mine took about a week.

          @Povotron:

          Were you with ABB before you switched to TC?

        •  

          @huhuu77: Can you please let us know how you go tomorrow?

        •  

          @Povotron: A week without the Internet? I will get yelled at if I turn the net off even for an hour… lol

        •  

          @Aussie88:

          Hi, my ABB NBN service was off midnight yesterday I think. I checked the status at 4am this morning and found no internet.

          I sent an email to TC support team at 5am, I was surprised that I got an reply email at 5.44am. This is really good!

          The tech. guy said my port is still showing as in use at the moment. They said it is quite common to be a short delay. They will continue checking today and let me know. Currently I turned off HFC modem and my own router.

          Hopefully I can have internet back when I get home.

          I will let you know.

        •  

          @Aussie88:

          Got an email at 5.30pm :

          We've now been able to submit the order….

          Not bad, maybe can be activated by midnight or tomorrow morning. :)

        •  

          @huhuu77: was it under TC’s instruction to turn off hfc modem?

        •  

          @Aussie88:

          No instruction at all.

          I set PPPOE, username and password all good, I can see the IP now, all the lights (HFC modem & router) seem good, but still no Internet.

          My status is still 'ordered' from Telecube website.

          What I can do is only waiting for further email notice.

        •  

          @Aussie88:

          Internet back! 98/36, seems alright!

        •  

          @huhuu77: awesome pretty quick and painless switchover.
          Did you sign up using the whirlpool link?

        •  

          @Aussie88:

          No, I signed up using the previous OzB promotion link last Friday, (already expired), but exactly same as whirlpool link. Added a note to activate new service today.

        •  

          @huhuu77: cool. Did you call aussiebb up front or on the day to cancel?

        •  

          @huhuu77: It’s not the same as the Whirlpool link any more at all.

          The Ozbargain expired link has the top 100/40 1TB plan as $85 where it’s $70 on the Whirlpool link.

          Sorry just had to say it in case people signed up now using the old expired Ozbargain link as they’d be paying much more!

        •  

          @Porthos:
          Hi, Porthos,

          As I said, the old link is expired because once you click, the price are all original price, no discount. But if you used it before 13 Mar, all the plans shown same price as Whirpool link, $49 could be refunded as well.

          Hi, Rep, I don't know why the promotion already gone but the link still there with the wrong contents, that's not good.
          @telecube:

        •  

          @Aussie88:

          I called them on last Friday (9 Mar), told them I will cancel the service on 15 Mar. Then got a confirmed email before hang up. ABB service is quite good.

        • +1 vote

          @huhuu77: Yeah I know they were the same, but just reading your comment it could easily have been read as you used the (expired) Ozbargain link as it's the same price as the Whirlpool one as you never said when you signed up, only when you were connected, so people may have done that and signed up for a higher price thinking they were still the same.

          I'm actually surprised no one has negged this deal considering it's cheaper elsewhere with the Whirlpool link. I also agree the rep should take down the old page from the previous deal.

        •  

          @Porthos: Agreed. Rep should not be posting this deal unless it is a better offer than the one on Whirlpool.

        •  

          @Aussie88: Yeah, I don't see why they'd expire the old deal when this new one is worse and the old deal is still available from Whirlpool.

          Don't get me wrong, from what I've read I like Telecube as a company and think their pricing and performance (from reviews) is amazing, but this constant changing of plans and offers just seems a bit strange to me.

        •  

          @Porthos: Whirlpool and Ozbargain are different markets, you just happen to know both. We are trying to promote the 25/5 speed tier and it suits Ozb rather than WP

        •  

          @Porthos: The way the pricing process works is to just display standard pricing if an expired offer is accessed, I'll look at also marking it on the page as expired.

        •  

          @telecube: Think you'll find the majority of people would be on both sites.

          It's fine if you had both deals expired then had different offers on both, but expiring a deal here, replacing it with an inferior offer, yet still having the original one on Whirlpool just seems a bit.. disingenuous?

      •  

        Ouch! Is there any chance that this process will be improved soon?

      •  

        i shall wait till it is a seemless switchover. Cannot live without the internet even for 1day lol.

        •  

          Put the money you save from switching from ABB to TC towards a SIM with enough data to last you a few days.

        •  

          @sween64: need more than 1 sim with the amount of devices and streaming we do, plus I am scared of being yelled at. lol

      •  

        I ported NBN HFC from ABB to Vodafone on Tuesday and the cutover was near instant. Lost connectivity via ABB, immediately got new IP from Voda via DHCP.

        Are there different churn processes between diff RSPs or did I just get really lucky?

        I'd read comments about it taking days so I was pleasantly surprised when mine happened instantly.
