Here is a brief log of my current upgrade from ADSL2 Plus to NBN in Australia (TPG Internet). This is not a paid endorsement and is posted as FYI.
Below is my current ADSL2 Plus Plan/Speed on TPG ADSL2.
On past occasions, I could get 12 megabits down but for the last 12 months, I have never synced faster than 10 megabits down.
Slow uploads in general (to servers in Sydney) 🙁
Downloading a 1.6GB Raspian Raspberry Pi image takes 4 hours.
File downloads on ADSL 2 are slow 🙁
Latest ADSL2 Speed (8:55pm, 18th Jan 2018).
Ping to www.fearby.com on ADSL 2

Upload of a small 9,551,485 byte file (Latest WordPress) to www.fearby.com on ADSL 2 via SCP.

Benchmark time: 1:39 to 1:53 to upload 6.5mb, it tales about 10 seconds to verify the upload.
Note: The biggest problem is ADSL offers a static IP and I have whitelisted the scp port above, the NBN plan I am switching to is dynamic so I will have a hard time securing my remote servers.
