cant get cable here, asdl2 'reach' is allowed at this phone number due to port limits in this area and distance, however it just times out like crazy, tried for a couple years to get it working but couldnt, maybe its because the lines down here are like 45+ years old. i did move and rented by myself in devonport(which is to the east) to get internet there earlier this year, however they had reached max capacity(yes telstra) for tophats for ports for adsl2 and took them over 3 months to add another one ontop of an existing, quite slow imo, but yea could get adsl2+ there IN TOWN like 300m from exchange, 20m/2m or wateva, got like 1.4mb down 100-200 up or something cant remember, took telstra 42 days to fix the fault on the end of their line after i got a port, cause they didnt believe me that it was a fault at the exchange, had to get 2 technicians down to test to line..... my god
u can see i dont like telstra, but anyway. all adsl1 plans, from any isp, run through telstras network, and i believe adsl2 aswell since its owned by them, so we pay poor prices, $90 for adsl1 in AUSTRALIAN dollars not USA so its prolly more if u convert it to USA...... that and 15000ms lag in mmo's rift wow etc...... fps is fine at 55-80ms, lowest ping ive ever seen is like 42ms...
but still 700m from exchange still cant get adsl2, they must be using old tech, or very old wires, and need new ones, cause my god 45 years they must be corroded....... but still, u cant even get them to replace them, even if u pay for them REGARDLESS OF PRICE, telstra will not do it. ........ the only thing to do is move house or go overseas and live there, its the only option..... and i just finished downloading 5gb through origin in 18 hours, and now it has to update the game so i guess i have to wait another day and do that overnight lol
