The guys out the front of my place have gone, leaving two crews left. As you can see the pit could hardly be any closer to my existing connection.
An they say the SE Asians don't assimilate to Australian working practices...

Well best of luck, but as I said up thread, the word is the NBNco lot don't have the software sorted to manage FTTC yet. So don't hold your breath (and avoid iiNet if you can).

Bugger in my enthusiasm I temporarily forgot the golden rule of new tech, "Never be the first in" Damn.... That's why we have Fetch, 'tis the only media interface my wife can use with confidence.


Very frustrating to have an iffy net connection, especially when it comes to watching and listening to media.

Hmm, from memory I think that UI is similar to Android TV or the default Kodi UI for that matter. All rows of options and arrow keys.

Yeah. Which is why you need a provider that works in the evenings, when you are likely to want to use it, rather than grinding to a halt but being OK outside those times.

.
Fetch works properly about 98 pct of the time, Kodi about 50 pct, that's the issue. I'll have to buy a box, if I go to a different provider, Circa 350 bucks.

We've got wireless NBN as have the majority of rural locations. We have the dish on the roof and receive a signal from the closest tower.
It's far in excess of our old $80 bucks a month for 8gig dongle.
