Ours is awful too, we are with tpg tho, i wonder if they go through optus. Blardy shocking!
Hope it picks up for us both soon

He said that there could be a tower down, that they dont know about cause they only find out about things like that when customers ring up, Yes I think TPG goes through Optus

I'm with optus too! Super slow and always has been. Thinking of changing providers. Tried calling iinet but apparently here I need to have a telstra connection first, then go to iinet. So, I will just have to put up with a slow connection
