    Hi Trevor I listened in on the 2 Blokes Talking Tech podcast this morning and heard about this NBN business. My street does not have these pay TV cables, unless they are underground as they are not above ground in my area. I think I recall you mentioning that the NBN rollout should be completed within 5 years? Did you mean the NBN rollout completed across the country in 5 years? Is there any further information regarding this online? I am about 4km from my exchange and the internet speeds we get are appalling and decreasing over time. I connect at about 3mb down. Crap.

      5 years, that’s it – if you aren’t in a HFC area, then Fibre to the Node is the likely outcome for you.
