I don't even know what I post in these forms any more. The service to my area don't seam to change, or I get told the capacity is all used up but there is upgrades scheduled then 2 weeks later MTS claims the capacity got used up again. I don't understand why the problem can't be solved correctly the first time. Now its a Sunday night (kinda cold) and I am getting ping times of 780ms with a download speed of 0.77 and an upload speed of 0.24 yup it took 3 minutes just to load the OOkla speed test page.
I can see why we can't get fibber but can't you implement ADSL2+ ? Oh right it will cost some money to upgrade the switch and heaven forbid you spend any money on rural infrastructure. But hey the bill's keep going up while the speed goes down.
P.S location is Binscarth.

We would miss you if didn't post here...there is more work scheduled this week to improve and sustain the speeds for Binscarth.  Often these activities need to take place in steps and stages in conjunction with work on the transport facilities as well as at the actual location.

Thanks again for feedback!
