NBN Fault Troubleshooting Procedure

A) What type of fault is it?

Speed Fault?

  1. If you feel you speed has dropped considerably for a consistent period of time, please take a series of speed tests here:  speedtest.net . Once the test completes click the chainlink icon under “SHARE” then select and copy the entire test URL in the “WEB” field as in this image. Paste the test URL in to a draft email to support@newsprout.com.au
  2. Ideally repeat this for approx 2 or 3 tests  at AM, PM, and Early Evening. This provides a really good daily snapshot. If you only provide one test then there is a chance the NBNCo./Backhaul provider will reply saying they will only action if you provide more tests. An unnecessary delay. So take a few please at various times of the day

Dropout Fault?

  1. Please provide details of a) when the dropouts started b) how frequently they are happening and c)  how long they are lasting
  2. Also please advise if the speed has been dramatically affected following these dropouts. Follow point 2 above if you can

No Connection Fault?

    1. Please advise when the service stopped working. And also if it is still down
    2. Please confirm you can see your Wi-Fi network name? If you have a NewSprout provided modem/router this will either be the network name you chose or since edited, or it will be our default “newsprout.com.au”
