Man, I can't wait to get NBN, I'm still stuck on ADSL2. Gonna be connected in Apr/May-ish. Hopefully no delays.
where do people live that they still dont have nbn?
Same. Still in Concord. No NBN yet and the existing DSL is rubbish
@dgs: Saw the NBN guys in my street last week. Not gonna lie it got my hopes up a bit. Fingers crossed.
Some people on new builds on subdivisions where it’s HFC. There was a complete halt on new nbn services at the time (late 2018). Only got a text 2 weeks ago saying I’m now eligible for nbn. Meanwhile I went for the Optus 4g deal and that works fine!
Plenty of Inner City Melbourne havent got it and are a still a fair way off.
Im in Richmond 2km from the CBD and only got NBN 2 months ago.
That being said, im with ABB and its been fantastic on the 50/20 plan.
My old workplace at Clayton South VIC only had ADSL…. Regularly under 1MBPS.
Windows update download time? just go home and come back tomorrow.
Wow im in perth 20kms from CBD got NBN since 6 months ago
Kalorama, Vic - still in the process of pulling through the fibre.
Then I moved to Mooroolbark, Vic, a week ago where they are also pulling through the fibre … but now I got cable :)
No NBN in the Sydney North Shore.
Roseville, Lindfield, Killara, Gordon, etc…
Thanks for letting us know
Urgh technician actually came today to install NBN only to find that Telstra didn't install their telco pitt at the front of my property to go underground and if I were to connect via aerial, I'd need written consent from either of my neighbors as the line crosses over their property. CommercialWorks is quoting $3k to install the telco pitt. What to do?!
Wow that really sucks. Have you considered fixed wireless broadband? If you are close to a tower it might be something worth considering.
Unfortunately it's not available where I am. The sucky part is I'm on Optus cable which is $60 p/m for 100mbps download and seem to be losing that option.
Wow where is that Optus promo from?
@Femelo: I've had this for around 10 years… I believe it was just negotiation.
@ShinK0: That's a nice price for a 100mbs.
Good on you.
@Femelo: its probably a legacy plan thats been carried through
@TightTerry: Fair enough.
Is the aerial option free with neighbours consent?
In nbn ready areas Optus turn off the old cable network after about 3 months.
@Twix: The aerial option is free however both sides have to cross the road and over both neighbors homes. I definitely will be making enemies. Also not sure if neighbors will give consent.
@ShinK0: All you can do is try the aerial option.
Tell your neighbours the underground install will have trucks, digging machines, traffic management people and probably broken road and paths needed to be fixed.
@ShinK0: You can transfer it across to nbn. I was on a similar Optus cable plan and they carried it over to my NBN plan too. I'm now on $60 per month for nbn50.
@Feeblely: Thanks for the pro tip. I think they offered me $63 p/m but I'm more sad that I lose the extra 50mbps as well as not having a telco pitt.
@ShinK0: Why cant NBN use the optus cable?
I used to have Telstra coaxial cable internet, now NBN runs off that very same cable just fine.
@Fincky: From my limited understanding the Optus cable in the house attaches to the powerlines outside, however the NBN node which is usually at the power line poles need direct attachment? So I can still use the cable in the house but from the house to the node needs to be connected.
Yup, been using hyperwave for a year and will continue to use them, even though NBN is just announced in my area.
Get crafty. Find a local team player, and pay them. Then invest in serious directional WiFi.
Without knowing more, that's what I'd think of.
Pretty sure you shouldn't be looking at paying for this yourself.
You already have optus cable which means its up to the NBN to supply the like replacement.
Cheers OP :)
Why are their plans 100/20Mbps and others like superloop are 100/40Mbps for same money?
By default ABB bundle 100/20 with Fetch TV for $99. To get 100/40 for $99 you have to customize your plan without Fetch TV.
Bailed on these guys for a different provider as I really am not a fan of only offering deals for new customers.
It seems to be the only promotions they ever run.
Many ISP deals are for new customers only. You have to play the game and switch ISP every 3-4 months to get the new customer deals.
6 months with ABB. Other ISPs new customer time might be different.
Refer people and get another month free.
What kind of deal did you want? "Existing customers get a month free!".
I’m hoping for another $20/month off for 6 months deal.
Same! My superloop $20 off ends after the next bill
You have to take whatever system is provided in your area that provides the NBN. I was lucky as i got wireless but also because its flawless with Aussie Broadband. I was on the slow, expensive, constantly troublesome ADSL with little data. Now unlimited, 85% at peak, no issues for cheaper.
when can i get this - i was an ABB user like 5-6 months ago - call them and check? dont want to explictly say i have used them before hahahaha
180 days = 6 months you can get the new customer deals.
ah - no worries.
thats my plan.
Anyone know if you can stack a promo codes with referral codes???
Unfortunately you can't do that. Sorry!
Can you please advise…
ie: I'm moving house, and need a brand new connection… I'll be doing what it takes to get a free month. Hopefully don't need to put everything new in my partner's name etc, just to get it.
Thanks so much for reaching out.
Unfortunately it is for New Customers not New Connections.
If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch either here or via private message.
ABB offers a modem for $149 + postage ($15). Is it worth getting a different modem that will work just as well, but is not as expensive? Or should I just get the one they offer?
What type of nbn is at your house? FTTN, FTTB, FTTC, FTTP, HFC?
If you get the ISP modem you can't get a free month.
oh, I didn't know that. and I'm not sure - it was only connected recently in our area. I'll do some research.
edit: it looks like HFC according to the NBN page
Just to clarify my previous post.. Get a free nbn month & modem/router $149 or pay for the nbn monthly plan and get a free modem/router.
nbn give you the HFC modem. Is your price limit $150 on a router?
Looking to change from our long running TPG NBN. Does anyone know if fax works over VOIP port, which ours does with TPG? This is really important for us.
NBN is a joke.
I tried to get ABB to connect NBN mid last year. Our current phone/adsl connection is in the lounge room, but the installer insisted that the only option was to install a HFC box on the foot of my 2yo daughter's bed and run an extension power lead from the other side of her bedroom. He later suggested we could go to Bunnings and find something to attach the HFC box to the wall above her bed and run cables up the wall to it. Needless to say, installing a box with flashing lights above her bed (she still doesn't sleep well) and running unsecured cables around a 2yo's room wasn't a solution, so we're stuck on ADSL.
ABB were no use in finding a better solution, apart from suggesting we pay an electrician to do the internal wiring from the outside NBN box to the internal outlet.
Can anyone suggest an ISP that is likely to have better customer service?
ISP customer service has no control over where the nbn technician wants to install the HFC modem.
As ABB said you can pay a data cabler to run the wiring to where you want the HFC modem.
Your other option is to keep ordering the nbn with any ISP until you get an nbn tech that installs the HFC modem where you want for free. Who knows how many appointments this will take.
when is this available until?
The flyer says March 30.
going to have to see how launtel is with first week free trial before moving across to these guys.
I get "Invalid promo/referral code provided" when I try to sign up - first time customer - has the offer ended?
EDIT: solved my own problem - looks like the code does not apply to the 100/40 plan.
What did you end up signing up with, and did the code work? Eg. with the 100/20 option?
Can confirm my own sign up on the 100/20 option worked with the free month applied.
How long does it have to be since being signed up to be counted as a new customer
At least 6 months.
