What does the install look like on your house?
Only reason I ask is a few of our neighbours have weird things on their rooves and I'm curious as to what they are.

Yep thats them, problem solved. I'm assuming the sub node took a while to get put in the estate and that might have been their only option early on.
Maybe its why our ADSL is so quick, because we're the only one using it! :lol:
Cheers guys!

Just upgraded our NBN to a faster speed and unlimited (was 500gig). Chewed through 900gig in 5 days with the kids going crazy. Had zero issues at all. My boy did an update last night, took seconds whereas he reckons the same update would have taken 10 minutes before. All for an extra $10 a month with iiNet

I havent switched to NBN yet, but today I rang iselect and they suggested a 12 month contract with Belong.....$65 + month.

Apparently they are owned by Telstra.

I currently have cable through Telstra.

Ive read some poor reviews re Belong, although not sure these would be reflective of their current NBN deals?

Im not IT-savvy, but I believe that if you live in an area with good infrastructure (which I apparently do), there shouldnt really be any problems.

Customer service though could potentially be an issue.

Anyone got any thoughts on Belong?

I Select only compare 6 nbn providers, Belong. Dodo, Harbour, I Primus, Optus and My Republic. Slim Pickings.

FWIW, I am with IINET, call centre in Australia, pay $60 for 500GB per month (never use all of it) and have had no major issues over the last 15 years.
