I can confirm that the Gigabyte Gigabit Gigabit Internet service, which launched in Australia in March, has been working quite well for me.I've only been able to access about 50% of the content I'd like to download, but that's about the same as the average American consumer.Gigabit speeds aren't quite the same for everyone, but it's nice to know that if you want to be able to download and watch HD...
It’s been a tough few months for people in Melbourne, and there’s plenty of reasons why.
The NBN rollout has been under scrutiny for a long time, and the state’s power industry has been suffering from record losses, even as consumers have been told they could still save thousands of dollars with cheaper alternatives.
As a result, people are looking for new and better options, and one company is making waves to change that.
Wave Communications is offering to provide a new service to its customers that is designed to save money and speed up their internet connection.
In a press release announcing the announcement, Wave says its broadband offering will be 100Mbps up and 25Mbps down.
The company says its customers can expect speeds of up to 1Gbps, with the option to upgrade to 4G, which will provide faster speeds at lower cost.
It’s a move that some are saying is good news for those in Melbourne who have been waiting years for the NBN to be rolled out.
“We’ve been waiting for this service for so long,” said Victoria’s chief technology officer, Paul Tuffey, in a statement.
“This is a huge deal for the Melbourne market and it’s great that Wave has jumped in.”
The new service is also available in Perth, which has had its fibre-to-the-node rollout halted by a court challenge.
The service is available to people who are already using their existing broadband, or who are planning to move to Wave’s fibre-based network.
The announcement comes after NBN Co was accused of having a “stunt” on the rollout by making the rollout slower than anticipated.
The government has also launched a $6.4 billion inquiry into the rollout, which is expected to finish by March 2019.
