NBN is available from May 5 down here.
I'll have to get the guy who installed all the C-Bus etc down here to convert it over once I get the modem. We're using a FritzBox modem rather than the Telstra-supplied one, and FritzBox just isn't going to cut it, I gather.
I'm probably about 350 metres from the node. On ADSL2 at the moment through Telstra, and it's actually quicker than the cable connection I had in Essendon. I suspect that was because the installation was faulty there though.
I doubt I'll bother with the highest speeds. I don't stream much and I don't game.
