Restoring power to your premises with an alternative power option will have no effect if the FTTN network is also experiencing power loss. You s...

Re: Report Broken Links/Failed Web Functions Here

Why does "Customer help forum" have the following things:

1. User Control Panel () • Your posts - what is the () for?
2. 2 posts • Page 1 of 1 12345 ... 19 - why does it say "Page 1 of 1" and yet the list say 1..19.

I doubt it. I have a colleague at work who has an Optus retail ADSL2+ service on the Port Kembla exchange. He rang Optus to complain about the poor speeds and they indicated October as the month when the upgrade is planned to occur.

Re: Unable to connect to abc.net.au

abc.net.au and www.abc.net.au are two different things.

On my ADSL2+ connection, the latter is provided by Akamai and resolves to an exetel address 20ms (6 hops) away while the former goes via the same pipenetworks router you report and does not respond to ping or tracert.

What were you doing between midnight and 2AM today? Remember, the day is now split three ways - 2 hrs peak, 10 hrs off peak, 12 hr peak.
