But we're not going to tell you..
..who's getting it first, in case they see no change in performance and complain about it online..
DOCSIS 3.1 has finally landed in Australia, courtesy of a currently-limited rollout to HFC-connected National Broadband Network (NBN) customers. Network-builder nbn™ hasn't announced where the service is being enabled, but said the deployment will reduce its reliance on node-splitting to meet its performance targets, and said …
Could NBN just please forget about me. I'm on Telstra cable
I have a friend who has the same feelings about his Optus cable connection. He is in a street with only 6 other houses running off the cable and does not want to change for both speed and price reasons. His only advantage in the change will be a faster up speed.
I wish you well when the inevitable happens alexmcm. What a clusterfuck this rollout has been.
I find it amazing. They are trying to implement snake oil to cover up the need to split nodes. Sorry, you are going to have to do that too.
This is not going to fix the connection problems I have experienced with both Telstra non NBN HFC and TPG NBN HFC.
Telstra - Extremely random disconnections without warning which could take anywhere between 3 hours, 6 hours or 3 days to reconnect !
TPG - Daily PPPoe disconnections. About 10 per day for 5 minutes each. Modem lights not flashing. You can't even login to a console to check a status with Arris.
Just reduce all this complexicity and provide full FTTP direct to a SFP port on an EdgeRouter FFS. Stop mucking around with experiments and provide a professional connection.
