Online Internet Connection

NBN

  • NBN is the optimal.
  • NBN is capable of a good online experience for our students.

Variable factors for unreliable connections:

  • NBN with busy traffic can impact connection speed.
  • Weather can have some interference.
  • Video calls/live video classes require a lot more internet.
  • Multiple devices streaming high definition (HD) videos at the same time.
  • Note: Those with a good (fast) connection can handle this but not all. Refer below for conducting an internet speed test.

ADSL (fixed or any Broadband)

  • Reliable connection is the key.
  • Stable connection (free of regular dropouts).

Variable factors for unreliable connections:

  • Proximity to tower.
  • Proximity to modem.
  • Wire quality.

Conducting an internet speed test to check stability of connection:

  • A good way to check stability of connection is to use speed tests.
  • Google have one: Type 'internet speed test' > Click 'Run speed test'.
  • Or your ISP (internet service provider) have their own local speed test tools.

Good to note, working from desktop and laptops is also an enhanced experience rather than accessing content and live sessions via a mobile phone.
