Im currently in a RBI zone were I get around a 3.5Mbps over an ADSL2+ connection and by the looks of the Chorus maps thats about all ill ever be getting over copper. With streaming becoming the norm this isnt really working for the 3 of us. By the looks of it from this map there is rural fibre at the top of the road around 800m away, is this even an option and if so how astronomical are the costs likely to be if anyone has any idea.
From my understanding the way forward for home broadband is fibre for urban areas and then wireless to cover the rest, so me with the RBI. However based on our cellphones there is no 4G coverage at my house on the Spark Network and only very spotty Vodafone coverage which i think is 3G as well. So im only seeing speeds around what im currently getting over copper anyway with any form of antenna. Am i just sweet out of luck at this stage at any meaningful speed improvement with reasonable data costs? If so is my only option wait till 5G rolls around and hope that im able to get good coverage and not pay through the nose for data?
