Are you NBN ready?

Over the next three years 6000 homes, businesses and schools per week will be connected to the high-speed fibre optic network, and the rollout will directly employ 16,000 workers. But there are areas which will miss out, or will have to wait longer than 2015. And with only 90 per cent of the country being covered by the NBN, there are some areas which will not get connected at all.

    All nice and fine, according to the roll-out map work should commence within 3 yrs (Yeppeeh!!), long before then the coalition might be in power and they promised to drop everything. I guess we'll be stuck what we have -or not have. Unfortunately.

    Interesting.. the map says that the roll-out hasn't commenced in my area yet, and yet we have been told that it's due to commence here shortly. Well, I'm ready for whenever it's going to be because I took advantage of the Centrelink offer which we had to accept by June this year.

    I think its another of labours money wasting ventures the sooner they get thrown out the better and start putting the money where its needed ie roads / hospitals looking after the penioners that worked hard for this country 40/50 plus years ago just back breaking work and now we get treated like second class people

    Gee Piklo, Who got out of the wrong side of the bed? We are a laughing stock in Asia because of our inadequate broadband and if we ever want our businesses ( and therefore our country) to be more productive and successful, we must have the NBN. Also those hospitals you write about will be able to give a much better service when the NBN comes in. Even Malcolm Turnbull is not arguing about the necessity for it. Diane

    wow, 40 Billion $ and rising..health system falling apart,prices on power and all services rising..cost of living rising. most large business already have fibre. major and regional hospitals have fibre, schools have fibre. if you want high speed,telco's will sell you fibre now. majority of people are happy with the speed they have. will fibre help reduce all the rising costs ? its my money and yours, fix the health system, transport, pension rates, stop selling Govt' services. sold telstra to get out of communications and then get back into communications with NBN...bloody waste of money..

    Are you NBN ready?
    I read this article to find out if I am NBN-ready. Doesn't appear to have anything to do with that.

    At the rate that technology is progressing , my bet is that within three years wireless internet will be faster and more realiable that this 43 BILLION dollar white elephant .In the meanwhile we are screaming out for hospitals and other really necessary items. What's wrong with the broardband we have now ???

    To Debbie McTaggart - this page is a farce - a bit like the NBN. There is no 'ready' information by yourself or others. What will be the costs ? Fibre cable to every house - so we can download movies faster ? what a farce. The NBN adverts say that Japan, Switzerland and Taiwan [I think] all have fibre - of course they do - they are postage stamp sized countries. Ju-liar should be exiled to any one of them. Bring back exile as the supreme punishment I say.

    I suppose the NBN will go past here one day in three or so years time. My care factor is zero, I use wireless broadband, have no landline as they are too expensive. My mobile phones and wireless broadband are much cheaper.... and Juliar will be turfed out next year.....
