    Re: Test and compare your internet speed

    I just moved house and whilst the new condo has an inbuilt cabinet with all the network cables/fibre point/etc in one tidy spot above the fridge, my master bedroom is outside the range of my main 5ghz wifi (despite the place being like 70 sqm). If I'm lucky and able to get a connection, my download speeds are in the <5Mbps range from my side of the bed (my fiance is slightly closer and she can get 10-15Mbps).

    I resorted to using my second router as a second router for this network (and removing my DNS settings from there which I used for Netflix) so I can get a strong 50-100Mbps in the bedroom. But then for fun I thought I'd try hooking up my ethernet adaptor again in the master bedroom (love how it's prewired with ethernet ports in each room).

    Came across this at a local store advertising test their internet speeds so I tried logging in.

    Depressing speed, and it costs nearly double what the above speed costs

    Which NBN plan are you on though? If you're on the 12Mbps/1Mbps plan then those results make sense.

    On a side note, I realised my Telstra 4G on my iPhone 7 yields faster speeds than my NBN 100/40 plan.

    Re: Test and compare your internet speed

    I know some people are obviously in a worse off position than I but my Telstra NBN whilst decent (100/40) drops out so frequently that my devices fail to connect, I wait for it to restart, etc... I actually miss my old Telstra Cable 100/2.4 which at least never had any reliability issues... ever.
