I tell them how it sucks that I am stuck on my crappy DSL here for 2 more years because its taking so long...

 

They get quite annoyed that crappy NZ DSL is about what they will be ending up with anyway on their FTTN rollout.

So why have they ballsed it up so badly?

 

 

 

(Note - "Because they are Australian" is disallowed as the answer!)

Hmmm, all the news coming from the west island about their NBN rollout seems to be on the bad side.

My feeling is that Australia will in around 10 years time finally conclude that FTTN was a bad idea, and the government will throw a huge amount of $$$ at running fibre to the home.

 

It will probably happen one election after Aussie TV shows like 60 minutes start running stories of Kiwis in Nuw Zelannnd getting great internet speeds on this thing called UFB...

I live less than 5km from the Melbourne CBD (As the crow flies) and I am stuck on 10mbit ADSL2+ for the foreseeable future. No NBN plans for my area, not even FTTN

I'm less than 2km from the centre of Martinborough, where there is a fibre line. No plans EVER to get it to my house according to Chorus!

Martinborough <> Melbourne, but your internet is probably better in the small Wairarapa Town than for most of the people living in Australia's second biggest city.

You need to shift to the thriving metropolis known as Masterton to get more fibre in your life. wink

I suspect the fibre cable in Martinborough to which you refer is a backbone cable for servicing an exchange - this should not be confused with UFB as they are very different beasts...

Is that somewhere near Outram :):) 

 

But more serously ...Martinrorough is potntially covered in UFB2 , although if you in the "surburbs" you likely have an RBI solution, or there is always wiz (although granted its more expensive and capped)
