tryin to get adsl beast?

Yeah man, @#$stra wont upgrade our RIM so we're stuck on dialup.

Only hope now is to move, or might be able to get ADSL2+ when the exchange

is upgraded by the new OPEL venture.

I'm after the specific details of my phone line, to see if they've been yankin

my chain.

Can anyone help?

a little while ago warners bay had the same problem. untill a "freak of natute" caused a tree to fall on the RIM.

Well then it had to be urgently upgraded and ADSL was now available.

hahahaaa =)

I heard that if you request bigpond ADSL they may upgrade the RIM with the minimux.

You've probably already tried to sign up to an ISP for ADSL, maybe hassle Bigpond and see if they can transport your line? (But highly unlikely)

Also have a read at the whingpool forums re being on a RIM... http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-searc...1&r=9061876

Also dont expect the OPEL or the FTTN network to be working any time soon...

Completion:

-Labor: 2013 (Labor promises a five year rollout)

-Government: Mid 2009 (Fully completed to 99% of population)

Yea good luck if they actually complete it... Sounds like a voting scam once again...

Try wireless?

Yeah I heard about the tree on the RIM story.

Maybe a car could miraculously run over mine lol, just kidding.

The problem is our RIM is actually an RCM, which can't be upgraded with a minimux, and Telstra wont spend the money.

Have hassled Bigpond and Telstra Country Wide numerous times with no luck.

Also am a member of whirlpool forums (no luck there).

I have been told by my local member that our exchange will be upgraded as soon as september

and there is a media release on his web site stating the same, but yeah, could all be

a voting scam.

Have exhausted every avenue possible, and only options are NextG (too friggin expensive)

and subsidised satellite (metro comparable my ass).

Or move house.

i work for a company that rebills from telstra so we see all the crap that goes on, we know for a fact that they prioritise their own customers over any one elses for faults, for ADSL connections, land line connections etc.

they don't see DSL as a priority service so they'll take their sweet ass time upgrading the exchange unless there is a high demad in the area but even then they'll take their time

one reason might be beacuse lack of techs available to upgrade, other might be money and the other might be cos they just dont give a toss, could be all three

damage their rim FTW

it wont matter about the land line, every telstra customer gets a mobile handset CDMA or whatever you req if they can't have a fault fixed within lead time.

if they don't offer it to you, you have every right to ask for it and they will have to provide it

other companies will only give it to you if you need priority assistance (someones about to cack it at your place)

TIO wont help for DSL i don't think... just breaking balls will but that don't look promising for you

Yea DSL is a "luxuary" item, as long as Telbroad minded person can provide a min land line voice phone service this is enough.

Maybe if you can get enough people at the exchange that want ADSL then maybe they will concider upgrading the RIM.

Have you tried ISDN or DoV?

Or just go on a rampage like that dude who broke all those Telbroad minded person exchange thingys : http://www.skylinesaustralia.com/forums/in...howtopic=176483

    • Here is my 2013 Nissan Skyline 370GT Type-S has a factory Nismo exhaust and Enkei rims. Shes completely unmodified. Brought her from Cult & Classic and drove down from NSW to Tassie November last year. 
    • Yet another thread bump because I want to talk about this: The general gist that this guy found for a MK7 Golf GTI is that by adding a venturi from a 2022 Tiguan he managed to pull crankcase vacuum far more reliably under boost which effectively stopped oil consumption on his engine in track conditions. An earlier video details how that venturi works: Basically one port is atmospheric vent, one port goes to a boost source, and the last port goes to the crankcase vent. There's a lot of discussion on here about scavenge pumps and all that fun stuff, why not try to replicate that by pulling some energy off the compressor? There is one catch though and that is that the PCV diaphragm on these cars appears to completely block off airflow from the intake when there is enough crankcase vacuum. This contrasts with the RBs where there is basically nothing stopping vacuum from the intake from sucking a big gulp of oil if it gets into the crankcase vent.
    • Hi All, Brought a 4 Door 2013 Skyline 370GT Type-S in November last year. Absolutely loving the car, noticed a few audio issues speakers cutting in and out and the 12V circuit seems to be completely dead (after checking and swapping the fuses) but just wanted to say Hi     
    • Could you please express this thought again with some clarity added?
    • So, whilst the Bogan Cruise Ship is GTG, and I had organised some time today to go on the SAU NSW cruise, my best laid plans where kicked in the balls, well, kicked in my right knee to be exact Now, after a bit of arthroscopic "honing" and tibial band lengthening "modifications" , I'm sitting on a couch in a prescription induced drug haze, watching 5hit on the Youtubes and falling in and out of consciousness......good times
