How can I get ADSL in Chifley?

a_jacob 14 July 2015 22


The short version –>

iPrimus got connected (believe uses Optus network) – took five minutes to load Gmail inbox page (discontinued the service).

iiNet connect a phone line via Telstra tech for ADSL – two days later received a text that the property is too far from exchange/too much loss can not continue to connect ADSL.

Netspeed longreach wireless – Installer says no line of sight from premises to any of their dish/services, trees in the way and hill (Mt.Taylor).

Has anyone connected ADSL in Chifley or do I have to move?

Need connection for external uni course.

Thank you.

Apologies, my post was meant to say ‘4g average’ not ‘4g max’ Reference (although dated) is here:

Like Lazy I said, you’re a long way from the exchange a_jacob. Your exchange is indeed DKIN (not Mawson) – check .. Some people in Chifley may be able to get ADSL but it’s not suprising that others – like yourself – can’t.

As f4te and others have suggested, iiNet / TransACT VDSL2 is available at most residences in Chifley and is typically fast (anywhere from 30/3 to 80/20Mbit) and reliable. Again, see

gazket – plenty of people on ADSL2+ get 24Mbit (or even a bit faster) on copper as long as several hundred metres. I suggest that if you really have an 11Mbit sync speed then either you have a line fault, the line takes a very long way around to get next door, or you don’t actually live next to the exchange.

4G from all 3 providers is capable well over 100 Megabits/sec, and I have personally seen 130Mbit on Optus 4G (using CA on band 40.) Yes, most people will see a lot slower than that most of the time. Yes, it’s too pricey for decent amounts of data transfer.
