Hi guys,

Anyone here using FTTN? If so how far are you from exchange and what ping are you getting? Also is your connection stable? I am getting NBN end of the year this year if nothing goes wrong but its a FTTN but they cant tell me if my ping will be like 5-10 ms. Atm i am on VDSL on 30MS. I am 1.1KM away from exchange.

Cheers!

I got NBN today. i had ADSL 2+ for a few years. My ping went from 30 to 11-20. Its FTTN NBN and i live about 300m from the Node and a few K's from the exchange. Definatly worth

Thanks so much man i am literally about to rip off my hair because of iiNet Support. I have never seen such a support service who cant speak basic english and works under NBN Technical Support. I thought TPG was fucked back in the day hahahah. All i wanted to know was the ping/latency whether it was going to stay as 30ms which is what I got currently with my VDSL or it will still be lower but not like 5ms like FTTH. I did guess it was going to be 11-20 after researching but thanks for clarifying. My area 'starts' planning in July-Dec 2017 and sadly Europe is already on 1gbps. :'(

They cannot tell you what you're ping will become there are literally hundreds of variables. Even if they could give you an educated guess they won't because if they tell you your ping will be 10-20 and after its installed you get 25-35 you'll go back and complain to them because they told you it was going to be 10-20.

I can also almost guarantee the difference between your current 30 ping and 10 ping are extremely negligible as long as you have a stable connection.
