Carl D(allegedly from perth) at comment 34, is right in that suburbs with nodes are being put together with suburbs with fibre to the curb or even the home...but I think the home option might be out of fashion now: hint I DONT KNOW ALL THE DETAILS, ... DO YOU?

Some suburbs had FTTH rolled out to some streets. The should-have-been-strangled-at-birth Libs ran FTTN out to the rest of the streets.

FTTN is a temporary network only. All those tens of billions of dollars will be flushed down the loo when FTTH has to be run out to replace the copper just failing too much to repair.

bloody hell that goose is a moron

Oh dear... they cant afford it or are unwilling to pay for it. The speeds are actually available.




WRONG GOOSE, the speeds are not available. .. sure the providers will take your money for the higher speed anyway, but the infrastructure can't cope.

I have brand new coax to the home throughout the complex I live in. None of the old telstra stuff anywhere on my line, and still the most it can handle on a good day is 50/20. The chances of getting that consistently day in day out, or during peak usage is slim. If you have to piggyback off the old telstra copper then you're well and truly fucked.

I was going to sign up to 100/40 but the NBN installers themselves told me not to bother as I'd never get it with the coax.

what a rort.

And at night you are lucky to get 3mbps—FTTN is chockfull of sources of congestion. ADSL does have causes for congestion but not nearly as many as VDSL aka FTTN.

Exactly. Just because a speed package is offered in your area doesn't necessarily mean it is physically attainable by all in the area. In my FTTN area, the bloke down the road from me who has the node on the footpath in front of his house can probably get the maximum speed, seeing as his computer is about 10 metres from the node. I doubt I have much chance, being at least half a km away, possibly further. I have nearly 2 years grace before being forced onto the libs monumental fuck up, I think I'll wait for now.

Paul Budde is now of the opinion that the value of the NBN will need to be written down:

https://www.itwire.com/telecoms-and-nbn/81383-write-down-of-nbn-firmly-on-the-cards-budde.html

The Libs won’t do it, of course. means the money advanced to NBN Co will have to be brought on Budget.

Little Lib fanboys have been claiming 5G will make the NBN/FTTH obsolete. Silly dicks, to make 5G work a fibre network is required! The Libs have been running out—copper!

Oh, I hope the chickens will come home to roost before the next election! Be wonderful seeing turdful and Fifield try to deal with all this.

5G will make FTTN obsolete and not fit for purpose (not that it really is now) pretty bloody soon! Get your popcorn!

Got a letter from NBN saying that due to issues with NBN, new connections won't be available because the system requires further upgrades, this is despite my area being NBN ready for the last 6 months ...... Spoke to a neighbour who said he saw something on it on the news last week. Apparently so many people aren't getting the speeds they're supposed to be getting that NBN has to go back and run new cable through areas where they tried to piggy back of the old system. Until thats sorted they won't be making new connections.

And it all has to be ripped up in 5 or, at the very latest, 10 years and replaced with FTTH.

I would bet on 5 years because 5G needs fibre backhaul.

What young liberal voters are just working out is that everyone knows people in IT that cringe at this,... and half of them vote Liberal!

Generation ‘my’ are starting to realise what the word “blue-blood” actually means!

...and they still think they have the right to make memes like this:
