Telstra is making use of its home broadband customers to share a portion of their bandwidth with other Telstra customers in exchange for similar access to get to the 1.9 million goal. However, the customers who have signed up to share their bandwidth complaints of drop in speed.

“It would seem when I connect to Telstra Air, my wi-fi NBN [speeds] reduce from 96mbps to 33mbps. Deactivated it jumps back to around 90-96mbps. This does not affect Ethernet, which connects at around 90-93mbps,” a customer said to iTNews.com.au.

“To understand what might be affecting in-home broadband performance in these cases we’re looking at gateway configurations, fixed broadband performance in a local area and any environmental factors that may be affecting Wi-Fi performance in the home,” reports the website.

In India, as Reliance Jio and Airtel is launching free public Wi-Fi across the country, there is a possibility for such issues to occur in India are Indian operators prepared for free public Wi-FI do let us know via comment.
