The funny thing where I live is that there are no more ports at the exchanges. So if the place isn't built with NBN, well, you're not getting any wired internet.

The whole socialist agenda subsidising regional bumfucks who made a lifestyle choice by living away from the greater population is pretty darn wasteful imo. These people should simply have sold their homes and moved closer to exchanges

Regional areas are mostly on fixed wireless which is a completely different project delivery stream from fibre.

Inner metro-areas are generally not used as rollout grounds for large network delivery projects - reason being that the failure domain is too large. You move to the more dense areas once you have your processes down pat.

Metro areas have had the biggest issues with the roll-out due to the multi-dwelling units and bodies corporate general intransigence when it comes to coughing up for internal cabling remediation (with hindsight it should have been presented with a FTTB option)

However, the current government are the ones who screwed the pooch on delivery timelines. The halt, renegotiation, design changes, validation & certification have added 3-4 years to the project timeframes. The idea that it would turn things around *quicker* was total insanity.

As soon as reuse of existing HFC networks was in scope - any planned builds for areas covered by those networks was canned - that takes up a fair proportion of the 'high value' metro portions of Melbourne and Sydney.

Very happy to have made the switch to Bigpond cable last month - especially since the writing is on the wall for iinet.

Anyone know how much it costs to get a cable run from the street to the house, my street has cable, but I'm in a newly built set of units that hasn't been hooked up from the street. Apparently we have to cover the cost of getting that done. Any one here ever had that done?

TPG is killing me.

Moved from ADSL2+ Telstra to Aussie Broadband Fibre 100/40 (300gb) and was only paying $75.00/mth, was the best deal out there I reckon and it really blew my mind how fast it was. Telstra was absolutely dismal however, exchange was overloaded and even at 9pm we were still only getting approx 2.5Mbit DL & 0.6Mbit UL.

Now my partner and I own our own home less than 3km from our old house and can no longer get NBN, on Exetels Unlimited ADSL2+ plan now @ $59.99/mth (included phone line rental) and its a neat compromise.

I didn't realise that it actually cost for them to hook up a service on which they are benefiting!

But a quick google search has shown a few people stating that a new line connection fee to the house is approx $299.
