    If only it was true :(

    Not bad effort for a 4 yeat old Billion 5100 ADSL modem ;)
  2. Why isn't it true? It seems on par with the ones I see on a few American sites - faster than some, slower than a lot of them...
  3. You know, I used to be pretty happy with mine, until I saw this:

    So is that good then?

    I get 60gig a month at these speeds, so Im pretty happy about it.

    At least I get good upload speeds
  6. You need a tune up Vic. Perhaps a turbo or super charger?


    But I am usually restricted to 16 Mbps, because I use an old router that maxes out at that speed. Still, it's good to download at 2 MB/s. :grin:
  7. You called?? :grin:

    Welcome to Bacchus Marsh! :LOL:
  9. I didn't think the Billion 5100 was ADSL2 compatible?
  10. Welcome to Coff's Hinterland and wireless BB

    Want to see Abysmal??? I'm supposedly on 'the fastest' cable extreme broadband with Telstra. What a fcuking JOKE!

    Must be off tonight, I normally sync at the full 8mb and 380kb upload.
  13. Wow! That's a lot of gay p0rn!
  14. optus cable, a bit slow on a sat night but 14ms ping time says almost no lag :)


  15. We can only get ADSL1 out in the bush... but the thicker lines mean that even at 6kms from the exchange I can still get a reasonable speed and a stable connection.

    Not ADSL2 mind you, but 3+ times better than 1.5 is still 3+ times better :)

    seems a bit slow for what I am supposed to get.. :(
  17. slightly better result from my wired pc (last one was the wireless laptop on the lounge)


    test result on http://ozspeedtest.com is a better result on download

    Mirror: OptusNet
    Data: 3 MB
    Test Time: 2.09 secs

    Your line speed is 11.7 Mbps (11698 kbps).
    Your download speed is 1.43 MB/s (1462 KB/s).

    You uploaded 206 KB bytes in 8 seconds.

    kbps: 211
    KB/s: 26.38
    Mbps: 0.21

    weird though just tested using "recommended server :

  18. Can any of you super duper IT dudes tell me why my speed is so absolutely shite??? I pay $100 a month for 'Cable Extreme' 25gig download. My little computer icon on my desktop tells me I'm consistently pulling 54Mbps yet this speedtest has me running slower than a guy in Coffs Harbour??!!


  19. your latency seems very high at 300+ms. Are you using any wireless cards in your computer? how do you hook up to your cable modem? there could be a number of reasons for slow speeds, so give us a rundown on what your whole connection and details of your computer etc..


  20. So I'm just a guy in Coffs Harbour now :cry: :LOL:

    Um well maybe I shouldn't tell you that, I'm only paying $55 a month for unlimited download as well. :p
