As broadband copper slowly corrodes, all-mobile broadband is looking like an increasingly strong competitor for customers who may later make the jump to fibre.

The strategic review of the NBN is not due for another month, but while its authors are busy assessing the next phase of our biggest-ever infrastructure project, the very ground beneath their feet is shifting.

Or rather, the copper beneath their feet is corroding.

And while that slow process continues, rapid changes above ground raise big questions over how much we need copper at all.
