Its bad enough that our NBN is a huge white elephant but I am totally fed up with the political lies, blame game and back stabbing over it. Instead of trying to make political capital, the politicians that WE PAY should just be trying to fix the damned mess. :flaming_mad

Turnbull is hung by his own petard, He introduced FTTN, which was never in Labor's plan, despite being repeatedly told by techos, me included, that copper couldn't support fast broadband. Blaming Labor is ridiculous, especially after the LNP has been in power for the past four years, but that's his regular practice these days.

Kevin Rudd says they tried to cripple the NBN because Rupert Murdoch did not want fast broadband to kill off his cable TV business.
What has also changed is the stunning improvement in wireless speed, and with virtually everyone having a mobile phone there is a lot more customers to share the cost. Nick Xenophon spoke against a tax on Wireless to fund the NBN yesterday
And 5G is coming as well.

Even when they only go to the node each connection still costs the NBN $14,000 - $15,000.
i think it has been mentioned it cost them $90,000 to connect one particularly difficult house.

hmmmm....someone is scamming serious money out of the taxpayer.

Why can't they connect onto the optus cables(where optus is laid out) & bring the NBN to the houses that way? :text-thankyou: :icon-mrgreen:

We may have finally got a win over the All Blacks on Saturday night,but what chance do we have of ever beating NZ on broadband quality.

Biggdad, you will be able to get NBN over cable now, providing your ISP is a cable network and the NBN is in your street.
If you are with Optus, Telstra, Vodaphone and a few others, then talk to them and negotiate a plan.

Buck, I am not sure that wireless will be faster than fibre ever.
Wireless has improved significantly, but will it ever reach the speed of light via fibre? NO, it is impossible!

The problem with wireless and cable is that you're sharing with other users. Fibre to the premises gives you a dedicated service.

Is firbre to the kerb the same as fibre to the premises ?
.....or is a super highway denigrating to a dirt track for the last few metres into your house ? (the old copper line)

You got it. It's a highway feeding into a country lane. It's your existing copper wire that gets connected to the little box down the road.
