I’ve Been Upgraded

I’ve finally been upgraded to ADSL2+. My ISP has finally installed their own DSLAM’s and upgraded me from ADSL1 to ADSL2+. I live less than 80km from Sydney and in the heart of it’s nearest major city, but it has taken this long to get ADLS2+ into our region. I was so excited that I expected miracles. However, initially I saw no speed increase, other than ADSL1 speeds. I contacted the technical support team and after an hour we sorted it out. They changed their port settings, reset my user port, I reset my modem and I entered a few crucial things like my username and password and everything came to life. Fantastic.

If you live in Australia, you cannot go past Westnet for an ISP. They may charge more for their services, but their customer service and technical support far exceeds the competition. I do not get any financial benefit from promoting Westnet, so you can check them out for free.

I’m now going off to check out the internet at about nine times the speed I am used to…

Woo hoo……………..

  1. Congratulations on the upgrade Don. Hopefully the faster speed will mean less twiddling of your thumbs waiting for a download.

  2. Thanks John,

    Now all I need is a faster pipe between here and the rest of the world!


  3. Don, on starting to read your post I initially thought it was a job upgrade! I remember having a go on my son’s computer years ago when it was dial up – what a time waster, I gave up – no patience.

  4. Bill, what’s a job?


  5. Don, it’s when you work your nuts off making money for someone else.

  6. Bill, you may have heard the Aussie joke:

    Q. Why do Australians only have ten minutes for morning tea?

    A. Any longer and they would have to be job retrained.

    Well, I’ve been out of work for over 3 years now and nobody will employ an old codger like me, especially in the IT industry, where 35 is considered “over the top”. All my skills are now 3 years out of date and I have no hope of catching up. Hence my foray into Internet Marketing, but I’d be better off being a street sweeper.
