The Government has announced their plans now. It all looks a lot better than I was expecting; about 90 percent coverage at 100 Mbps with 12 Mbps wireless for those that the cables won't reach. This is much faster than what was planned before. It also mentions that towns with 1000 or more residents are eligible for the fibre optic goodness, so that will give some indication as to whether you fall in that category.Cupiditas said:tfraser said:*snip*
Although I'm at uni (Melbourne suburbs) now; the net here is about the same speed but with pretty much the whole place pulling off it.
I also saw the 7.30 Report feature covering the news, in which someone they interviewed said, "potentially, consumers could receive speeds of up to a gigabit a second on this network architecture". Unlikely, I would think ... but still an awesome thought nonetheless.
