    Specs:
    24" iMac Aluminum/2.8GHz/500GB/6MB/Lacie Quadra1TBTM,MBPro13 wSSD, AirportX, iPhone4G,ATV1
    Here's mine:



    I called Comcast today and they sent down a refresh signal, and per the tech's suggestion, I unplugged the comcast modem and then my Airport Extreme for a couple of minutes. Looking at Pine Tree14 above this post and that seems like he's got a T-10 connection LOL.

    I don't think this is terribly fast but I do have the Comcast Triple Play and they said it includes some sort of booster. Looking at some of the numbers posted here I feel like my setup is "sluggish"? LOL Had to laugh this morning because the lady tech said she had no idea what Comcast used as a baseline guarantee. I'm in a neighborhood that has had underground wiring for 30 years now and supposedly it is fiberoptic. Other parts of my town are on telephone poles, don't know how to find out any more on speed.

    In the house we have a 13 MBPro on wireless as well as a new iPad, plus two iPhones that are using the wifi. In addition, my wife's PC is a bit older so I think its a G... but I have it disabled and she's hard-wired just like my iMac and my Shuttle XPC are.

    Bloody hell Harry, thats not the best is it. And NBNCo says they aren't starting building in your area until 2016 NBNCo ~ Roll out Map of Nambucca Heads.

    Raz0r Im hoping i will have those speeds within 12 months as the NBN (National Broadband Network) that is the Governments Fibre Optical promise is being built in my home town as i write and they reckon just after Xmas and ill have it in my home fingers crossed.

    NBN is at Coffs Harbour, 50 clicks north, and Macksville, 15 clicks south but in the middle three years before they start unless Tony tears it all down!

    He is going to stuff it isn't he. Why on earth have FO all the way to the front yard then bottle neck it as it enters your home with the old copper. To save a couple of Billion thats why, and if thats so, why put it in in the first place.
    Im totally confused at this, and hope I'm in if he gets in

    Now those speeds above is what ill be looking at in KA town of 5500

    That would tick me off. I haven't opted for their "Quantum" upgrade offer yet, because I need to call them to negotiate my next 2 year contract (and they're going to throw that in for free, whether they know it now or not). But right now, those results are what I'm seeing with my 30Mb package.

    Again, over WiFi:

    I've been receiving eMails and postal ads from Verizon for the Quantum upgrade. They claim it's only going to cost an additional $10 per month. Don't you believe it. By the time they add local, state, and federal taxes, that $10 becomes more like $20. Good luck on your next contract. I can't get Verizon to give anything for free around here, although they did upgrade my equipment to the latest and greatest. And actually that was done by a Verizon tech who just happened to be a good guy.

    Well, I'm told that they compete pretty fiercely with Comcast in this area. So, we'll see. Frankly, I wouldn't lose a lot of sleep moving back to Comcast. If that's how they want to play, then I'm game.

    I did try it with a hard connection to the FiOS router and I got well over 50/25 consistently, so that being the case and me getting 30 Mbps both ways through WiFi is perfectly fine with me..

    Oh nice. Well, now all you have to do is get a real router and you'll be rocking! (with insincere apologies to AEBS users... )
