I just checked mine 6km from Perth CBD. First half 2019. Penalty for living in WA. (wait awhile)

6.6 from Perth CBD June to Dec 2018 old copper connections hope they are up to it! 



I live 40 minutes from Sydney CBD and it will not be available until mid 2019, so you are not alone.

Dec 2018 for me 3ks from sSydney PO But I won't be taking it . 

Currrntly I use Optus home broadband that uses the mobile network . 

Will anyone have a choice if they want a landline?

Out of interest ... what does it cost and do you get unlimited data?

Because the NBN is a monopoly as Abby has found they refuse to let her return to her previous set up. 

Your Previose land line will go over the NBN so any problems no land line . 

I would rather not join and wait for mobile technology to provide a better service and only have one broadband charge.

My current set up of using Optus home broadband is by neccity . 

I live in a lane way 3k from PO but no broadband available so have to use Optus home broadband over 4g 

it works great . Cost is 70 for 70 gigs . 

would like unlimited but not available yet but is in US 5g will make Cable redundant
