The reality of the NBN

Customers are singing the NBN's praises and savvy entrepreneurs are taking advantage of low start-up costs in a bid to compete against the telco giants. It’ll be a tough act for Malcolm Turnbull’s fibre and copper compromise to follow.

I’ve spent a lot of time writing about the politics of the NBN over the past few years; today I want to write about the reality of it, for the customers and the resellers.

One of the 375 postcodes in Australia that now has the NBN connected is Brunswick, an inner Melbourne suburb.
