    Hybrid fiber-coaxial cable. Its the old Telstra/Foxtel/Optus network. They use it in some areas to deliver the NBN.

    Well following on from my post back in October, I switched to FTTN NBN and went from 6mbps on ADSL to a pathetic 14mbps on NBN. I must live even further from the node than I realised. I downgraded my plan straightaway with Aussie Broadband.

    The good news is that I'm building a house in a new estate which has FTTP so no more crappy internet by next year.

    Meanwhile my brother in Singapore is getting 940mbps at home, and would actually be faster if his modem wasn't restricted by the 1gbps port.

    I will always be the first to line up and shit on the government for what they have done to the NBN, but Singapore is hardly a fair comparison.

    No bloody Internet basically all day today. Third time it's been out in a week.

    Here is a good one

    Apparently the NBN chief is blaming gamers for clogging up the NBN.

    That's like saying the roads would be less congested if they didn't have any drivers on them. I mean seriously? The system hasn't even finished being implemented yet and there are excuses being made as to why it's underperforming. imagine how bad it's going to be when everyone is using it and more people are playing online games and using streaming services for their TV.

    To be fair on the guy he's only blaming gamers for the problems with fixed wireless not FTTN, FTTC, HFC or FTTP. /sarcasm

    As much of a joke as FTTN is, fixed wireless is an even bigger joke.

    My phone on Telstra's 4G network maxes out the local towers modem at a little over 200mbps down (it could go up to 1gbps but the local tower is not setup for it), yet nbn co can't even get my friend 20 down on his fixed wireless nbn. At least it's better for him than his ADSL was.

    Due to life too busy, I hardly ever download or game, so I only had youtube. For me it did the job as my ADSL and I save about $20 because there is no need of a phone line and my speeds were acceptable.

    I cant say the same for those who require the faster speeds.

    The thing is "gaming" doesn't use that much data. It's the download of the client that uses the most data, and most people just download a game client once and then it sits on their hard drive for years. Patches do add up but the vast majority of them are small.

    Streaming video on the other hand actually uses a lot of data constantly. If I had to make a political scapegoat of a particular demographic that skews younger like he did I'd blame video usage. Especially since Netflix alone is known to have consumed 37% of North American internet bandwidth in 2015.

    My friend on fixed wireless is a content creator, which means he uploads 4k video to YouTube daily. I bet he is the type of person this guy really wants deprioritized on the nbn.
