A house in the Lakeside development is the first home in Adelaide to be connected to an Internode NBN service.
Michael Siddall and Jacinta Warren chose a 50Mbps service from Internode for their Lakeside home.
Mr Siddall said the service was eight times faster than the ADSL service at his previous home.
"Last night, I used it to download TechNet ISO (disk) images for some virtual machines I’m building.
"With the NBN, I was able to download four of them in half an hour.
"That obviously saves me a lot of time, so it’s definitely a good thing for my work.
"Another benefit is it’s really fast at streaming tech videos about how to do things. The video is smooth and seamless - it works really well.
The couple report significantly improved speeds when using Internet banking and Facebook, gaming ("the NBN makes a real difference"), and during general web browsing.
Just over a year ago, Internode connected its first NBN customer in Willunga, South Australia, one of the NBN's five 'first release' sites.
