The NBN's backup potential

Amidst the bickering about what the fastest NBN download speed should be let's not forget about the higher upload speeds on offer.

Amidst the sound and fury about the billions being poured into the NBN the one big benefit of vastly faster NBN upload speeds has been largely ignored. One reason for this lack of focus has been the incessant bickering on what the fastest NBN download speed should be. 

The Labor party says the NBN should be FTTH and the 100Mbit/1Gigabit top download speeds offered are future proof, whereas the Coalition has argued that it should be FTTN and 100mbit speeds are overkill.
