Telstra I don't believe have announced it as yet but all that is required is a Power Cycle (reboot) of your cable modem to update to the new configuration files

Cable (Base Plans)
Down: Will change from 36Mbps to 55Mbps
Up: Will change from 1Mbps to 5Mbsps

Cable (With Speed Boost)

  • I waiting for nbn but now it’s pushed back to in 2020!
    Now sign up to Telstra cable on 22/4 received my modem kit on 23/4 set up on 24/4 and 25/4 connected to the internet!
    Speed is 56 download and 5.5 uploads.
    Who need NBN NOW!!!!

    • Who need NBN NOW!!!!

      Nobody needs it, but when it comes… bye-bye cable

      • I did. Went from 4/1 to 94/37…

        • cable is faster

        • @jv:

          No, its not.
          115 down / 5 up gives you total bandwidth of 120 Mbps.
          94 down / 37 up gives you total bandwidth of 131 Mbps.
          So HFC is faster.

          Anyway, the relative speeds are more meaningful (perceivable):
          Cable downloads are 22% faster than HFC.
          HFC uploads are 740% faster than cable.
          Its all about that upload…

          @Viper8:

          94 down / 37 up gives you total bandwidth of 131 Mbps.

          I use my 4G mobile for uploads and usually get around 20Mbps up

          so 115 + 20 = 135.

        • @jv:

          You serious.

          OK then well I use my 4GX for uploads and usually get 60Mbps so 94 + 60 = 154 Mbps…

          Ridiculous.

        • @Viper8:

          OK then well I use my 4GX for uploads and usually get 60Mbps so 94 + 60 = 154 Mbps…

          That's pretty awesome…

          I might need to upgrade my mobile.
