This exchange...*cough*demountable*cough* is a joke, this post was made in 2009, Search on the internet and there are posts about this exchange as far back as 2007 that I can find and it's almost 2012 and I cant even get a descent connection through here because of congestion, I would like to know how many people in this area are still having issues with the amount of new houses gone up and going up I would expect it to be a fair few...

Hi there,

I saw this post and had to sign up to add my 2 cents.

This exchange is an absolute embarrassment. I would take a guess, and say one of the worst in the Metro area. The sad thing is, it doesn't serve some tiny suburb of 50 people, it serves a large area- including many heavily built up estates.

I have lived in Beeliar for the past 7 years. I wont bother going into the number of times I have called Telstra for line tests, changes modems, changed phones, replaced phone lines. etc etc.

I have accepted that 160 kbps is the best download rate I can get, and the regular crappy speeds and drop outs are unavoidable when using this exchange.

I have happy to say, I am moving NOR soon, so there is an end in sight....for me. For the rest of people using this exchange, I don't see anything changing any time soon. Maybe I will check back on this post in 5 years?

I cant believe Telstra can still use this sea container (AKA - exchange).
