If there are any of you out there with 8Mbit Transact I thought I should let you know that
some of the older Transact suburbs have had their equipment upgraded to VDSL2. I happened
to stumble upon this when looking at the Transact web site. If you put your address into
the "Can I get Transact" form it will tell you yes or no and also which product you can
get. It seemed I could get VDSL2 in Hackett.
I rang the sale area and was told that, yes I could get onto the new equipment but that
I'd have to accept a $10 reduction in my monthly payment to them and I'd also have to
have my set top box replaced with a HighDef one, for free.
So after all this has been done I now get a SpeedTest result of: ping 29ms, down 61Mbps,
up 17Mbps. This does get slower during peak periods but it's still better than 8Mbps.
So please form an orderly queue.
