The issue in Australia is the technical inadequacy of the NBN.

You have 18 months from NBN becoming available until your old connections are deactivated.Use all of it.If problems occur you are now allowed to revert to old network if you already tied yourself to the turkey.

From first hand experience, I couldn't agree more. The information superhighway is a dusty old road in Australia.

That's nice, but mobile towers become congested more easily compared to a dedicated fixed line. Mobile data might seem good in principle, it's a real problem when lots of users are concentrated in one area.

<off topic> The CVC congestion created by the NBN's pricing structure is, on the other hand, artificial and could easily be eliminated by changing NBN's wholesale pricing structure.</off topic>

June 2019 at the earliest for me... my 10+ year old ADSL router will gave to suffice for now, although not looking forward to having the paved footpaths, the street torn up to put the wires down...

But your thinking about current technology, Not the technology that is coming. 5G is coming

And we can always build more towers

If only footpaths being torn up was the only or even biggest problem.

Wireless delivery of internet services is the way for much of Japan and wider Asia. I've seen wi-fi speed tests done showing 1900 MBps download speeds - not bad for a mobile network.

Re NBN / Telstra I have both.... despite my wanting to decline (on advice from a friend in Telstra) when I got the call advising me the area was to be upgraded to NBN. I said thanks but no thanks to which they said I had no options and ADSL would no longer be available. Oh and our engineers will be at your premises in 2 weeks to do the installation.

Much activity in the street but no digging up of roads or driveway. Installation goes ahead and I am told it will take 24 hours to activate. Also not to switch anything on until I am told to. No landline no internet and no Foxtel signal. 24 hours became 3 days and still no word and no service. So I just decided to switch it on myself. It worked. For 5 days when I was sent an email to say I might have service interruptions because they had to do some upgrades. Indeed another 24 hours of no phone, 'net or Foxtel. Service resumed and I rang them to say I would like to take up my option to restore old system.... sorry not an option.

Now 6 months on I have and still get days of service interruption, although now it sometimes leaves me with Foxtel.

They did upgrade my plan for no charge to give me unlimited downloads. Yesterday I received an email to tell me I had been (no charge) upgraded to a faster evening time speed:
Quote:
we’ve upgraded your Telstra T-Bundle Connector Everyday internet speed from Standard Evening Speed (nbn tier 25) to Standard Plus Evening Speed (nbn tier 50), at no extra cost, for the life of your plan. Standard Plus Evening Speed provides typical minimum speeds of 40 Mbps between 7pm and 11pm.
I thought great. Yesterday afternoon (standard speed time) I did a speedtest. 24mbps. 8pm when my speeds were meant to have been increased I did another test. 19mbps! Under half of the expected and promised 40mbps, and slower than my standard day speed. No I was not downloading movies during my tests.

They call it progress.

Hang onto ADSL as long as you can, has been my advice.

Although I find it highly coincidental that within weeks of wireless NBN being implemented in my area, that an iffy 'phone line has reared it's head...

As I said I requested that I wanted to stay with my ADSL and was told in no uncertain terms that ADSL was to be disconnected in my area as soon as NBN was installed and that if I wanted internet it had to be NBN.
