I just saw this.
If I may, I would like to be like Sideshow Mel... COME STAND NEXT TO THE BATHROOM DOOR, I WANT TO YELL AT YOU SOME MORE!!

Once a CONTRACT has been signed, it IS A GUARANTEED service, and BOTH PARTIES MUST MEET THEIR OBLIGATIONS... I'm not saying EVERY company HAS to offer a service to 100% of the country... And I am not saying internet is a guaranteed service.. Where did I say that?
I said, where a provider OFFERS a service, that service HAS to meet what has been signed AND PAID for... And IF it doesn't, it's a breach of contract, no matter what...

You should work for Vodafone James :owink: They'd pay you 180K a year to get them out of shit. :olol: They tried the same bullshit with me of why they weren't liable for a shitty service.... But a Technical knowledge and a little Customer service knowledge got me my money back and a few extra bucks, and a few months free usage..

You can fuck with someone who's ignorant... And you can fuck with someone who's an asshole... But you can't fuck with someone who's informed and nice to you.. :olol:

apparently I'm getting the shitty HFC NBN according to the optus TV and phone cut off notice.. I'm not paying MORE for net fucking worse than I have now. I do want to tell the NBN guys not to touch any of my copper, but I won't be home. (They don't need to even touch my copper to install NBN, I'm on my own line separate to optus)

I was talking with Sam (I think my ISP's only customer service rep, who is fucking awesome) and he said that he couldn't see any cutoff notices for the lines I am using. so essentially, I can keep ADSL until the lines are physically removed. And when I am ready to switch (IE after I have no net) I can go on their fastest plan, contract free, no setup fee with installation within a week, a free modem, pay as I go phone, and a $10 a month discount.

If NBN is using the Optus HFC (which apparently they're only doing in very select areas, what with Optus HFC being a fucking mess) then no, they won't touch your copper. They won't have anything to do with your copper at all. Copper based FTTN and HFC have no shared infrastructure in your premises so there will be no touching of your line. Also, copper disconnect is 12-18 months past NBN RFS date. Unless you're using Optus HFC cable now (which I know you're not) because Optus make up their own rules and say "FUCK YOU!" to all their cable customers and WILL switch those services off as soon as NBN RFS date hits.

For what it's worth, NBN HFC is miles better than ADSL/FTTN. It's almost on par with FTTP.

Firefox 57 is now out and has killed most of the add-ons I was using. Bring back Tab Mix Plus!
