    I really have no idea. The chap just said it's what NBN Co. designed for this last bit of our estate.

    Good luck with it. I reckon you will be happy with it. I'll say that my connection gives constant 46 to 48 down and 15 to 17 up. Very reliable.

    13 emails from NBN and TPG (my provider) advising of 7 different dates and we are out to June 2019 now

    Unbelievable

    3 weeks to the advised installation date and counting - over 2 years late so it better be worth the wait 😛
    Ordered 100mbps from FTTC so we have high expectations

    Nobody turned up last Fri. Telstra called at 5pm to say nobody will be coming due to duct issues. I said thanks who's going to pay for my day off next time? Rude person couldn't care less. So I said lets cancel the order. I'm going to run ADSL until I'm forced off and I won't go with Telstra now. It's the best it's been in 7yrs lol. I almost but be the last person on it. Most people in my court now have fibre to the home.

    with NBN, unless you payd $80-$100/month for 100Mbps then it's worth it. Otherwise a cheaper plan at 12Mbps, 25Mbps is slower than the 4G on your mobile phone, which has been available for years. NBN isn't worth it unless you want the 100Mbps for home use.
