[@pennypincher98](/comment/5549086/redir): True dat, true

[@pennypincher98](/comment/5546452/redir): Haha don't be really, it was the company money. Just very frustrating personally

[@DiscoJango](/comment/5535623/redir): I don't know any bad providers there. Very good infrastructure in general :D

[@pennypincher98](/comment/5534596/redir): They still had to pay their regular bills. We had to wear the excess data charges :(

I know they're working on rolling out a new one. Might help

[@pennypincher98](/comment/5534014/redir): Technically it's not illegal to torrent as well, and the ISP has no way of seeing what content...

That would be market share including sub-companies. Top 4 in order are (and this includes mobile service); Telstra Optus TPG Vocus
16/01/2018 - 13:16
Owned by TPG but still run independently for the most part. Different support centres, different focus and different processes
16/01/2018 - 13:15
WTF, do you have any tech knowledge? Now, it doesn't impact me, I'm actually really happy with my service (low ping time, no congestion on...

MP264? They aren't great are they...

[@Hahuh](/comment/5525115/redir): Vocus had some horrible routing to Singapore a few months ago. I think they've fixed it up now though, my...

PM me either your address or home phone number if you have one. I'm not from TPG but I can pull some accurate cable details for you
16/01/2018 - 12:57
I'm willing to bet that's Telstra being dicks. Dodo doesn't own any local exchanges, they only resell Telstra. So the delay would have been...

Metro? They have a pretty good metro network by all accounts
16/01/2018 - 12:53
[@pennypincher98](/comment/5530486/redir): This can happen. Telstra aren't legally allowed to reserve better pairs (bits of copper) for...

[@pennypincher98](/comment/5523444/redir): The TIO are ruthless on the Telco... If you don't get a result, it means you never had a case in...

[@HARSHREALITY](/comment/5526779/redir): Please explain how the ongoing copper maintenance costs vs fibre upkeep costs didn't make sense....

This article is highly misleading. For a start, RSP's all have different agreements with NBN. My company has 3 different agreements based...

Great idea, thanks Scotty!
16/12/2017 - 11:42
Tassie all the way!

Interesting. They don't have network engineers in Melbourne to my knowledge... What happened?
09/11/2017 - 10:27
Probably not, to be honest, I only have visibility of my own ISP and to suggest that would be biased. It's best to rely on the wisdom of...

[@pig](/comment/5222435/redir): That's where my confusion is. Local in networking normally means it doesn't even reach the WAN side of the...
29/10/2017 - 19:58
Define local server? That speed to the node you're connecting to is reasonable, and maybe to content hosted by the ISP, but if it's hosted...

[@DavidFong](/comment/5218874/redir): We always need a devil's advocate, the more uncomfortable they make you feel the closer to the truth...

[@tryagain](/comment/5216009/redir): Good points, I tend to lose track of the financials as they hold no direct interest to me. For me this...
27/10/2017 - 11:19
[@EightImmortals](/comment/5215987/redir) Interesting. I'll have a read, thanks!!!
27/10/2017 - 10:52
Some good points. Mostly to play Devil's advocate here, let's not forget that FTTP also fixes the issue of ancient internal wiring by...
