I'm looking at the NBN map and there's coverage by "other providers" around said areas. Does anybody live around there and have NBN? Is it cable? How are speeds?

I can't believe how hard it is to find NBN near-ish Brisbane CBD right now :\

I think Optus cable (with speedpack) is still faster than NBN, isn't it?

Slower upload though.

What are you saying nope to?

I get 100mbps (off peak) but yeah slow upload.

I think cable also suffers congestion more than NBN, but I could be wrong.

check your nbn provider for upload speeds.

else its less than 1.5mpbs which is completely useless for everything.

Well that's s***house. I'm trying to find somewhere to move where I can stream, and effectively upload files around 3gb to Youtube without having to do it overnight.

Its not "NBN" it is fibre, i get 4mbyte/s/0.1mbyte. You'll have to google/whirlpool plans as its specific to that one area due to the exchange being demolished by lady cilento a few years back.

Much of West End and Highgate Hill has fibre to the home. My mates used to live there in a flat with it. I've been looking at units to rent in that exact area and most of the places I looked at had fibre, though some had HFC/cable. (edit: could just be coincidence that the places I looked at were fibre, so maybe "much" is an exaggeration, but certainly I saw way more NBN fibre then than elsewhere on the west side - basically zero fibre in Toowong/Indro/Auchenflower).

I would definitely be looking in this area if fibre was a requirement & you want to be on that side of town.

The NBN address thingy I have found pretty good at telling you what technology is available in specific addresses.

No that part of the area is part of Telstra Fiber which is 100 down 5 up. This happen when they remove the exchange to extend the hospital. Only people who sell it is Telstra and Exetel use too not too sure if they still do.

Even 5 up is relatively slow. To be able to stream and upload I'd really want at least 10-20 up :(
