The subject of the mis-information spread by NBN itself and the Minister as consort is amazing.
The suggestion that the fibre arriving into Eugowra is salutary success is a distraction from the fact; that access to all internet services will only be by wireless, is blithely overlooked by all to the reality that there will not be ‘fibre-to-the-home’ (FTTH) or even ‘fibre-to-the-node’ (FTTN) in your street.
The same will apply, it seems, for Canowindra and all other small revenue generating areas and towns. The real speed of this form of internet access is just how many are trying to use the internet at the moment you wish to. If it is high usage at that moment – take your turn to get data through.
FTTN would be the best compromise because the subscriber could opt to connect or not from the pillar in the street as you do now, where the offset of FTTH would dictate that a higher cost for re-working your home wiring for telephone access as well would also come into play. The fibre coming to Eugowra is to connect the radio element alone, without any cable running down the streets.
All in all, send an email or a letter to the Minister: firstname.lastname@example.org, to let him know your thoughts on the weak compromise he is offering (being the fella at the sharp end)
