poppa x said:A year or so ago I questioned whether Wireless would render the NBN redundant.
With Singapore about to launch high speed 5G I'm still questioning.
Baloo said:Singapore also completed FTTH first.
Now the wireless can leverage off the fibre backbone.
Wireless will never compete with fixed wire.
poppa x said:How does the fibre backbone support wireless?
I'd like to know.
poppa x said:OK thanks.
So please explain this...........
I have ADSL (ADSL2 not available) and my Wireless upload/download speeds on 4G are up to 10 times faster than ADSL.
Am I missing something here?
KnightersRevenge said:All the benefits a fiber backbone brings to households, it also brings to the wireless towers. Think of them like TV towers. They beam out a "wireless" signal, but they still have to get that signal from somewhere. It comes to them the same way it comes to you, through a cable. M
Ok try this, although I'm not sure if you are taking the proverbial.
antman said:No worries Poppa. I think your question is not about the NBN and more about the vagaries of a 4g dongle vs an iPhone on 3g/4g networks.
Are they both through the same Telco?
Ouch, I didn't realise the costs in Aus for crap Internet.You should be able to get 20+ MBPS easily. I had weather related issues early days and they came and fixed/replaced something and came good. Hopefully you can have same success but you definitely need to follow up with your IP who then activate NBN. If you have already done this that sucks. Took a couple of weeks to get sorted and that was pre covid.
I’m with iiNet and currently get 50/20 for $75/mth.
hopefully you can also find some positive stuff to focus on out there too.
you mean, in addition to fluffing up the Covid response, robodeath, car park bribes, sports clubs bribes, trying to destroy the NDIS, refusing to respond to climate change, and spending over $1m supporting Clive Palmer fight the WA gov over borders, this current inept government ruined a well planned NBN and gave us rubbish?Time to resurrect this thread, mainly because I am frustrated.
Since I refuse to fund RWNJ News and the rest of the Murdoch empire I have only seen the highlights packages and the press conference after the last few games.
To do this I go to the RFC website and attempt to watch the videos and what happens? Endless f***ing spinning circles as the useless NBN tries to download a short video. Bloody pathetic. When download rates sit around 200 Kilobits per second it takes 20minutes to watch a 7 minute video.
Fibre somewhere in the neighbourhood and crappy coax (first patented in the late 19th century) does not deliver anything which could be described as a "broadband" network. It slows down in the rain. It drops out for no apparent reason. It is s***. No other word for it.
FFS this is an absolute disgrace. Every country needs decent internet these days and we have been sold a third rate pile of excrement by the incompetent luddites masquerading as our federal government.
So sick of this.
