How good is cable (especially DOCSIS 3) in Melbourne
now? It used to be
unfriendly to Linux, requiring, as I recall, a special login tool for Telstra
and restricting "servers" from being run under Optus, and I'm not sure
speed or reliability.
100/3mbit speeds for me (outer eastern Melbourne suburbs), outside of one multi-day outage
due to something up the street blowing up, no problems. OS agnostic; they provide a Cable
modem that'll do DHCP/NAT/etc.
