not a bigger exchange, they need to build an exchange in your area.

If you are a new estate are you sure they havent laid fibre to the rim like they are starting to do?

what If I said I only lived 1.3km away from my exchange? Theres two exchanges Forest Lake run on, the Inala exchange and the Forest Lake exchange. http://www.adsl2exchanges.com……=FRST%20LK I live at Balmoral Pl (bottom left) which is on a RIM system and the FL exchange is between Grand Ave and Centennial Way (that big grey area). But apparently the FL exchange isn’t a proper one and is only a minimum exchange.

PS They built this exchange 5 years ago to help co-op with the Inala exchange but now its just shit.

So if you live that close to the exchange then its the second part of my post.

To save space, cable, junction boxes and cost, telstra just whack the rim in the estate, all the pairs run to that rim instead of all teh way back to the exchange, the rim can have fibre running back to the exchange.

Your best option is to try and get a line transposition to move off the rim and have a pair that runs directly to the exchange. Thats if there is any pairs that actually leave your estate without plugging into the rim

don’t use xfire sorry :)

Pair refers to the pair of copper wires that ( usually ) run from the exchange to the house. There is an X pair and C pair, the X pair is what your standard phone line runs over, C has the dsl signal. So if you get an ADSL fault with no sync but can still get dialtone someones damanged/cut your c pair.

ISP’s like mine have their equipment in the exchange, we unplug the c pair from telstra and plug it into our dslam which is how you get the better speeds, because your pairs end at the rim we cant do that hence the reason most ppl on rims cant get dsl2+ from anyone but telstra

anyway we have gone slightly off topic.

For your case, the fibre from the rim to the exchange is most likely congested ( or the exchange backhaul itself ), your problem is going to be having your ISP fight telstra to upgrade it.

I thought thats what you were going to say. But the problem has only been this bad since the Qld floods, my surburd wasn’t in the floods but it seems to be pointing that way or just all the storms we have been having. So to solve this problem we need Telstra to build a bigger/upgrade the exchange and rip up the RIM and swap it with copper or cable. Is that what your kind of saying?

If its the exchange it will be anyone on that effected, if its since the floods n stuff then have they fixed all the other areas yet? They could be re routing traffic around the damaged areas to keep their network working but causing the congestion.

Your probably right about that Sonik. The internet has got a bit better over the last few days and Ive been seeing Telstra guys there almost everyday over the last week or so. Hopefully thats what their doing and it will be fixed over the next couple of weeks or less.

Just did a quick flip, and pinged the same ip on optus cable.. pings seem allright but it hops allot more than iinet.

But still according to this, on cable my ping is on average 50-60ms, on iinet im getting 20-30… go figure.

lol but optusnet would rather have it in txt format, which baffled me.

Also with optus, when i rang up to cancel my cable connection it was the most easiest call i ever made to optus. They never even attempted to offer a single thing like a re-imbursment or X amount off each month, considering how long i was with them for (even tho i was going to refuse). She asked why i was leaving i told her due to “bad connection quality” and i have emailed technical support over a dozen times with no provail, to which i tested the same pc with 2 different ISP’s and optus was terrible in peak hour.

She said “allright” clicked a few buttons and i was disconnected within seconds. I was mildly surprised.

So far not one single hickup on iinet, tonight iam going to change over the speed to the “Gamer” setting.
