Is awesome because I could win a PS4.
However, non geeks shouldn't sign up because it lessen the chance for me to win a PS4.

Fibre is awesome because it changes the game,
An end to slow connections, an end to the pain.
Fibre is awesome for streaming HD,
but if it continues to to buffer

I recently moved an Elderly lady (in her 80's) on to UFB. She was having on going issues with broadband and phone. It was going to cost $$ to fix her internal wiring; so we put those $$ instead towards UFB. She now has a rock solid phone line and internet connection. So yes, UFB is not just for Geeks :)

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

Cloud computing only becomes meaningful when users can access their data in the cloud fast and seamlessly. Fast throughput, low latency, ADSL/VDSL have been rick rolled by UFB.

UFB is the future that can you can enjoy right now. Throw away your USB harddrives, UFB does it faster and better.

Even if you don't care about the having the fastest internet, installing fibre to your home now will increase it's value, meaning you can get a better price while selling, or make your rental property more compelling.  It's a govt back initiative that 9/10 times doesn't cost anything to install, but if you miss out on the free install period it will cost thousands.

Consumers who connect to fibre will not be paying a premium vs their old internet connection, the price is very similar or the same, and your telephone works the same as it always has, plus you will get an upgraded wireless modem that won't crash when you've got work to do.

UFB opens up a world of possibilities. Imagine being able to get access to your favorite TV programs on demand or reach out to people on the other side of the world via video. This experience is possible due to UFB. ADSL or alternate technologies may be able to achieve some of the above but once you have UFB, say good bye to 'bufferring' or waiting to access your content. It can all be as easy as turning on your TV using a remote.
