That's what you get for choosing the option that was something like 1/5th the estimate of the FTTH solution.

Australians complain... more at 11.

 

 

And you wouldn't? <insert tui ad here>

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

 

 

 

 

We're lucky enough to be in a cable area in Adelaide, because our ADSL was <3Mbs.

 

Now we have 100/2. Fastest cable in the country!! undecided

 

 

 

 

 

We get "NBN HFC" in 2nd half of 2018.

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.



My lowly rural VDSL at 18M/1M which I can saturate even at peak time costs me less than the 4M/300k DSL1 which slows to dialup speeds at peak hour that my parents get in Emu Plains. An equivalent scenario for living conditions in NZ would give them 50M+ VDSL at least, with fibre on the way.

These comments are my own and do not represent the opinions of 2degrees.

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!

 

 

A fibre line goes past our driveway to the school down the road but no chance of ever getting connected to it.

 

So we are stuck on 5mbps ADSL1.
