Did you know that the NBN (National Broadband Network), which we paid 40 billion will never be finished? Don’t worry; an optical fibre cable which is already in place will deliver lower speeds via regular phone lines using VDSL to the end user.
It is even more interesting that Telstra-Bigpond cable customers can already get speeds faster than the proposed NBN (up to 120Mbit/s) for just an additional $20 p month! BigPond calls it a Booster Pack. It is not advertised anywhere, but BigPond will also install the service for you, if you ask.
