As far as the NBN goes, .. my experience was a good one, .. until a month or so ago.
Then I started to get an increasing amount of drop outs. At several points in the order of 10 an hour!! Drove me batshit crazy. Rang, bleeted, twice, and it has now become better, but can still get borked at times and drop out 3 or 4 times in an hour, but mainly stable. I'm hoping it gets back to the way it was in the 1st 6 months soon, I probably only dropped out once a month in that period.
Thing is, I did a Google on the issue, and it apperas to be a rampant one with FTTN, & FTTB connections, and I started to wonder, .. if you have a home phone via this thing, .. will it also drop out in the middle of calls with every fail??
I don't have a phone with it, but I suspect it would, and if so, that is farked, particularly for the eldery, ill & infirm. I mean WTAF??
If that wasn't the greatest argument for doing FTTH considering the virtually infallible phone system it's replacing, I don't know what was.
Why didn't we hear more about that clearly obvious, life threatening, very real & what was always going to be very common issue at the time??
