25/5 NBN speed test is 5.6/0.8

I recently upgraded to NBN on 25mbps dl, 5mbps ul so I thought i'd run a speed test to see why I'm getting a poor experience.

Speed test:
Exetel Sydney
Ping 20 ms
Jitter 186 ms
Download 5.6 Mbps
Upload 0.8 Mbps

Please look into it.

Re: Switched to NBN for ZERO improvement

Still getting 10mbps on speed tests. Since this is a throttled service, I was expecting closer to the promised 12mbsp... Is this worth investigating?

Re: Premium SMS Barring

I replied to your email on the 12th and have not heard back.

However I suspect this should be something you clear up publicly since the main issue is misleading/incorrect documentation.

Re: Blackberry Setup Procedure

I'm sure this is either out of date or irrelevant now? Should it still be the first item in the list?

no coverage on mobile - any options?

Hi,

I've been with exetel forever for mobile and adsl.

I'm about to move house and have just discovered that I currently get zero mobile coverage.

Is there anything I can do besides change provider that might solve this issue?

Thanks, Paul.
