    Install done today, about 1 hr all up. I helped the bloke with location of points and i fitted the wall plate while he ran the cable from the foxtel box in the carport under the floor to the PC/modem location, i mounted the UNI-D while he activated the service. VOIP phone is yet to be activated, i'm on a low speed plan which is still 4x the best speed i ever got on ADSL2+.

    Last night I'm sure I saw the ceo of NBN saying NBN has been ramped up by 40% capacity to meet the needs of increased home use.

    If this can be done now , why wasn't it available in the first place?

    Probably because backbone capacity was not required or being paid for before now. One of the bottlenecks that the NBN could address is backbone capacity which may have been impacted by ISPs only purchasing what their actual data requirements are which would have ramped up as consumers use more of their unlimited plan or consume excess data.

    Out consumption has gone up a bit over the previous 4 days with four of us working at home (2 kids and two adults)

    If it has then it hasn't reached here yet & me imagining it is like a hose filling a trench slowly, slowly, & then the bugger suddenly overflows. I bet that doesn't happen either.

    I note my local download speed is still about 35MBPS, down nothing from before hand.

    However an email sent at 1PM to my own address from Gmail took until 9PM to be delivered, so I think there is a lot of congestion at the ISP level.

    Regards PhilipA

    I've noticed that post alert emails are pretty slow today so that would make sense
