This was in the source of the page from the second link above: https://exetel.dualstack.speedtestcustom.com - that works, but it o...

Re: Woeful speeds Narre Warren HFC 100/40 service

btw see this:

https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze ... 8.96.8.240

It does show TLS1.2, but something else seems to be an issue now (blank page).

I have told the browser to forget the page and tried to load it completely fresh (no cached objects of the page).

Re: Woeful speeds Narre Warren HFC 100/40 service

The TLS warning / problem is still there, I hope you can get this fixed quickly; not sure when Firefox support will lapse for the less secure TLS versions, but it's not without good cause that support will be ending.

Re: Woeful speeds Narre Warren HFC 100/40 service

The service come good overnight, not sure exactly when. I expect there must have been a local area issue unrelated to the actual connection itself.

Woeful speeds Narre Warren HFC 100/40 service

Narre Warren, HFC, poor download, upload speeds are good. This is a better result just now: https://exetel.speedtestcustom.com/result/3d7a7020-c36c-11ea-baa6-19b71c429f47 I remotely connected to a site in Brooklyn, there were no speed issues there with the FTTN connection (also 100/40) at that time....
