Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull is out and about today. He’s on the Central Coast of NSW testing a new fibre-to-the-node (FTTN) site in a little community called Umina, and the speed test is actually pretty impressive.

“Seeing is believing,” Turnbull tweeted earlier, producing a speed test of 94Mbps down and 36Mbps up. What’s curious about this is the ping speed: 32ms seems high compared to fibre-to-the-premise which produces around the same speed. One would assume with speeds like that you’d be getting sub-10ms.
Another interesting thing is where Mr Martin McInnes lives in relation to the fibre cabinet he’s connecting to.
