Who else provides cable apart from Telstra and Optus? My place can only get Optus cable, so it would have to be an ISP using optus cable.

I'll be happy if the 30mbps cable even gives me close to a steady 20mbps. The adsl2 barely touches 11mbps. NBN isn't coming to this place until early 2018. :(

The upload speed is the most concerning. 2mbps even on cable..

Just a heads up if anyone was remotely interested in far harbour for FO4.

EB is currently selling the PC code for $4 but will have to pickup in store as it's about $9 for shipping since it comes in a box.

I get cable with iiNet (formerly TransACT, who was formerly Neighbourhood Cable) and doing a speed test last night I got a little over 100/60Mbps over wifi with my iPhone SE.

Yeah. I'm stuck on 100/40 (which in reality seems to be around 97/37) over the nbn. Could I guess get a second service and aggregate it. Dumb though, but the whole nbn wholesale pricing is such that they cannot afford to offer higher end plans, like gigabit.

Yup. Keep in mind that for typical connections, a 100mbps downstream is purely theoretical. Because iiNet (TransACT etc.) actually have offices down in Geelong and apparently use it as some kind of test bed, there's at least a handful (I suspect it covers most of G-Town) of houses that are essentially uncapped, speed-wise.

I'll do a speed test connected directly to my router, see what I come up with.

A mate of mine had uncapped cable for a while, the ISP was testing some stuff and notified a few of their customers.

He would regularly get 240 down in speedtests.

Shows what the wholesale network can actually do. Too bad it's a monopoly (basically a govt approved one) that charges through the arse for data and cripples the throughput down and up. The tech is the same as international network-tier ISPs, even some world leading tech TBH, but they choose to cripple the shit out of it in their own interests. It's been this way for decades with Hellstra at the helm.

Queue the same complaint for mobile data plans...

My NBN is down for the weekend. :(

Orange light on modem, after an awkward call to the provider they've had to send the issue to NBN Co. So that probably means it won't be fixed for a while.

Kind of annoying when you have an empty weekend with job applications and study to do.

more than 2 up on Cable is NBN branding

suffice to say outside of of NBN sectioned areas you might just be restricted to optus sadly as telstra and optus were the only ones to do it at one point ,

the alternative might be looking at what optus are selling on mobile data or looking at wilrpool for info on what smaller grass root internet compneys exist near you if optus is no good ...

----------------------


side notes was thinking of doing that PS4 pro trade deal - guessing destiny isnt allowed to be trade in as that one game ( they are currently selling it for $4) tempting to buy the game and try a diffrent store if that were a thing

Not sure as I dont know what hulu or us netflix has.

I dropped Netflix to pickup Stan as I basically never used Netflix anyway (and wont I guess till Stranger Things S2 or the new Trek show starts).

It has given me the opportunity to start a Fringe rewatch. And I did get to see a Wil Anderson standup thing because of Stan. It also has a bunch of Showtime shows. Not sure if US Hulu/Netflix has that kind of stuff.

I expect I'll subscribe whilst Twin peaks is on and then drop it. With no lockin I think thats how I'm treat most services as there's just too many services.

We use Netflix and Stan and it's a great combination.

We dropped off of Hulu after all of the geo-blocking stuff became annoying to keep up with.

Anyone know when we might see a sale on Switch. I don't want to jump in until it hits $399. You can get a PS4 with extra controller and a copy of Horizon for $399. $469 for a Switch is just too much.

Kogan briefly had one recently, but I assume it was an import with no/little local warranty.

I guess whenever the Christmas sales start.

Kogan had AU stock for $375 on the weekend. They'll start popping up more and more I expect. E3 should see a few bundles as well, Splatoon 2 has to be one.

Ugh, I hear you on Galactic Circus. Kind of didn't mind the new Cruis'n USA game though.

No real "arcades" as far as I know anymore, really the only places I can think of that come close are Bartronica (in the city), Pixel Alley (Collingwood?) and I know a few pinnies and arcade games were just moved into the Golden Fleece Hotel only a week or so ago.

But yeah, no actual arcades afaik :/

Unique production requirements since they're using carts rather than blu rays. Less supply options. That could also be impacting stuff further down the distribution line like shipping/packaging/etc.

Really really recommend watching at least the first season otherwise you will miss a LOT of the impact. Try to watch first few and last few of Season 2 if possible too.

That Mexican wave did about 4 or 5 rounds before it died!

Also, I learnt that a lot people don't know how to make paper planes for shit. Some people were folding disasters that couldn't even take off. Others were folding them like torpedoes, of course they'd go up and straight down. Only a couple knew that they needed good wings to catch the air and glide.

At least those things kept things relatively entertaining in the second half.
