Did anyone else notice this significant slow internet speed lately in Dunlop (I’m in Jarramlee Park)?
Two weeks ago I was getting frustrated with my supposedly ADSL speed slowed down. So I used my provider’s speed test application online to check the speed. A couple of weeks ago, I got roughly 780kb/sec download speed, which isn’t bad for me, being on a pair gain system.
This week, the internet speed was even slower. Today, I checked, it’s running at 46kb/sec!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hello? Am I going crazy? WTF? It’s slower than a dial-up modem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Seriously, Telstra needs to get their act together and do something about it. There are more and more residents moving into Dunlop area and needless to mention the Gungahlin area, and why do we have to suffer the consequence of other people’s incompetency?????
I’m getting more and more frustrated as days go past. I need to work from home from time to time but right now there is no way for me to do a simple search. It took about 1 min to load RiotACT website and another 1 min for me to open my Gmail to retrieve my password. How long do you think will take me to do a stock image search in an online photography library????!!!!! The bloody front page wouldn’t even load!!!!! I’ve been downloading an artwork specs sheet, less than 1MB PDF, for over 5 minutes now.
My patience is running thin!!!!!! Not to mention my deadline is apporaching. I think we, who have to go through this, need to think of a way to get our points across. TELSTRA NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!!!!!!!!!!! We are living in a digital world right now and they can’t even provide a basic and stable broadband infrastructure!!!! What a joke!!!!!
Dunlop isn’t out in the countryside. It’s in Canberra, the capital city of Australia, and I have internet speed slower than a dial-up modem. Tell me if I don’t deserve the right to be furious?!
