Then I can ditch the dodgy telco provided modem and directly connect my NBN service to a real router via VDSL interface. The telco modem is only in the path to provide the land-line phone, with my real router providing all my home LAN connectivity (3 separate VLANs, multiple PoE WiFi APs with multiple SSIDs etc.).
That sounds something like a Ubiquiti system. At the moment, all of my system except for the router modem is Unifi. I tried to install a USG a while back, but gave up. Now that I have more time, I've been looking at it again over the last few days, and fingers crossed, I'll migrate to it later today. I have a spare modem/router already set up to work with Aussie just in case it all falls over.
So there is hope for some improvement sometime in the future.
I'm not too sure I'd hold out all that much hope. I'm 700 m from the node. When first connected we had a sync at about 47 m/sec. That has since fallen to about 42 m/sec. From my reading of Whirlpool, I might see a couple of m/sec...but just as likely nothing.
