I'd like to see a 2gb/2gb. Now the gremlins have been banished from our connection I can't fault it. Still waiting on ipv6 though.

Yeah as much as I like the idea, I'd think a 2G symmetrical from Cityfibre via Zen is going to be about the same price as 900/110 from OR.  Hard to pass up on that even if they started offering higher speeds too.

There's a point of diminishing returns and frankly I've already kinda hit it given most services are hard-capped below Gigabit as it is, especially for uploads. Balanced between FTTP and 5G, were moving into saving a few more seconds on a big game download which is pretty much pointless, its the minutes that mattered.  Overall the network speed is no longer the bottleneck anyway, its the IO and CPU of the device due to writing the data and particularly updates using patches which take longer than the download.

The reason to go for 2G is it probably wont be more expensive than I'm paying now, some services bork at your IP flip/flopping, and most importantly I'm curious if my box can handle PPPoE at those speeds. ;)

Considering Starlink + AAISP costs 130 a month... I'd be saving money...

Any technical thoughts on this one or folks too busy drooling?  :lol:

I'm nearly there for a 2gb service when it comes. Switch and hard wired lan all compatible.. its just my router. I would like to stick with a qotom but they don't seem to do an "i7" with 2.5gb port. My current i7 qotom has 6 x1gb ports. Spose I could build my own tower with 2 x 2.5gb  lan cards??

I like how they've gone with 8Gbps, but really it's actually full XGSPON. However, if they sold it as that then punters would probably be wondering where the other 1.6Gbps of bandwidth went. Now, you and I know full well why, but to just go under 8.4Gbps and sell an 8Gbps profile is a no brainer. We saw the same effect with 25GPON, real world max throughput is more like 19.odd Gbps.

I'm definitely glad to see the death of "up to" as a cop-out.  Under promise, over deliver is a far better policy.

That is dying along with FTTC, thankfully. Now, if the industry can only convince everyone they don't actually have fibre broadband...

Should be all good as long as folks aren't expecting throughput to be 100% 24x7 on these. There will be times when 8 isn't achievable but they won't last long and won't happen that often.

Hope for the sake of the folks on the segments with an 8G user that that user isn't one of those folks, I really dislike these guys, who run automated speed tests not like every day, or hour but every 30 or even 15 minutes, in the extremes even less, to make sure they are getting 'what they pay for'.

Its bad enough with people on Gigabit wondering why their 2.4Ghz WiFi connection is so slow.  The industry pushing figures and not education people on the technology really sucks.  The fact some ISPs sell their service on the WiFi speed not the broadband doubly sucks.

Not sure I understand. Under promise and over deliver as you said?

"Slow Wi-Fi"? *cringe* - but - as an expert in these things I understand everything. Your average punter does not.
