Bit of a nothing announcement

Still going to be a tiered system and no mention of what the costs for people that want to get that upgrade to FTTP will be, and not everyone will get that

So they are going to put more money into the shitty HFC and FTTN and FTTC programs as well

meh

Seems to be instead of charging a few g upfront to run the fibre to your place, they put you on a contract to get the few g out of you .

Ad hoc rollouts is a head scratcher... what's their strategy there?

They just seem to want to keep making this as slow and expensive as possible

I'm moving out of my place in the next month anyway, but at my current address I'm still on ADSL 2+ and running a spanking

So NBN came out during the week to connect me to FTTC
Tech plugged the modem in and it synced up

Today I go to move my connection across and have to unplug the modem from power to re run the cable because he had it coming out the front of my tv unit instead of going round the back

Of course the modem won't reconnect and I've had to log a fault and have to wait for them to come back sometime during the week

Cant imagine there is a fault if it was working before you moved the cable

Who is your provider and what cable are you referring to ?

FTTC install will have 2 devices, first one is the NBN NCD which plugs into the wall socket

The NBN NCD then connects to your Router with a Standard Ethernet Cable, pretty easy to fault find if you want me to talk you through it

I unplugged the power cable to run it behind my unit instead of having it hang down the front.

When I plugged it back in the NCD wouldn't connect just stuck between connection light flashing blue and connection light switching off for a few seconds.
NCD clicks every time it restarts the cycle.
So it's not getting to the point where the DSL light comes up

Well after an absolute cockery mine is finally working. 48 hours after the tech came. The product is great now it's working but it was a nightmare to set-up with my ISP and the tech had to replace the box and its cost me a new router.
