do you have NBN to the premises ?
We have NBN to the house via iiNet and it is usually around 23Mbps on a 25Mbps 
plan here in Booragoon.
For some reason when streaming overseas TV channels it is often stop-start, 
especially in the evening. I have 
been told the ISP can “throttle” that type of streaming mode. Anyone has the 
same experience ?
