From time to time I like to do a speed test on my internet connection, I’m proud to say mine is pretty nice right now.
This is the result on my connection, it is on a Telstra Wholesale ADSL2+ port through Internode, in regional Northern New South Wales. (Zone 3 Exchange)
Ever wanted to know which ISP’s in Australia are on twitter, here’s a list for you all.
If you know of an others please comment below.
Finally some great news, my ISP of choice (Internode) has opened a SourceForge mirror. I almost fell off my chair when I seen it, after many users begging them for one on Whirlpool they have given use one. Apparently there is about 5 terabytes of information hosted by Internode in the SourceForge mirror, bringing Internode‘s total unmetered content to about 32 terabytes.

South Australian based ISP Internode has announced that itself & a group of 9 other ISP’s are partitioning the ACCC to compel Telstra to provide wholesale ADSL2+ access.
The main points of argument are as follows:
- That Telstra provides untenably high wholesale transmission pricing
- Telstra also claims exchanges are full and there is no spare space in cases were this is not true
- Telstra delays approval to access exchanges to install DSLAMs

The Letter to The ACCC
Didn’t see this one coming, but it’s a good thing for anyone who is and Internode customer. It’s back to the good old days of Premium Usenet access from probably the number one ISP in Australia. To bad I’m not with them at present, although my place of work is. Then again I might consider this to be something that will make me change back to them as this is a very nice value added service for an ISP to offer.

I got board so I did a speed test. So how fast is your net access compared.
Oh yes and remember, don’t have other programs using your net connection or the results will be fudged.
Australian ISP (Internet Service Provider) Internode has just changed it’s access plans. The new prices in some cases have jumped $40, and in other cases download quota has been massively reduced. Personally my plan 8000/384 ADSL with 40GB has increased by $20. I will be moving to a new provider and I think many other users will be as well.
