Apparently I can get NBN... but not

I got an email from Exetel saying NBN will be available at my address in Roleystone, WA on the 7th of July. It is now the 11th and the nbnco official website says it is available at my address but when I check my address on Exetel's website it says it's not available yet. This contradicts Exetel's o...

Getting ridiculous now

Not long ago I was complaining of very slow speeds. I was getting ping times to google.com of between 1 and 2 seconds and it was resolved but these last few days it has started to happen again. What sometimes fixes it for a few minutes is rebooting the modem but 9 times out of 10 it will only fix it...

Extremely slow speeds - Very long ping times

We have been occasionally getting very slow speeds with our internet but this was tolerable as it didn't last too long. However, lately this has happened for hours at a time making our internet unuseable. We have to wait about a minute or 2 to get Facebook to load. When I ping google.com during our ...

Re: become very slow only in the afternoon and night

I am getting the same issue. These last few days, every night at around 2am or so the internet slows to a crawl and I get ping times of up to 3 seconds and some lost packets. And when the day comes the internet is back to being fast again. This has happened every single night for about a week now an...

Slow as a turtle

I like turtles, but not their speed. My internet has been at turtle speed for 2 or 3 days now. I am getting speeds of around 0.6mbps. I have tried powering off the modem and reconnecting but that didn't help.

Re: Unacceptable speeds

I am having the same issue here in Roleystone, WA.

The speeds have been absolutely atrocious, most notably with YouTube. Right now I am waiting for a 144p video to buffer! It has really only been like this for the last few days and has almost slowed down to a halt since last night.

Outage in roleystone

The Internet has been down all day today. Might be something to do with the power blackout that happened today. Can you check on this?

Here is a test I just ran. Test run on 11/12/2009 @ 12:39 AM Mirror: Exetel Data: 9 MB Test Time: 77.46 secs You...

You're not alone. Others including myself are experiencing the exact same thing. For me, most sites won't load but a few do like google and gmail. msn and skype work fine. iTunes can't connect to the iTunes store

Re: Can't access internet outside exetel

I am having the same problems, although my problem may be the fact my ADSL2+ connection hasnt been fully set up yet. I have just upgraded from an ADSL1 to ADSL2+ and it said it would be activated approximately today. I'm not sure how long the downtime is while the transfer is being set up, but as it...
