    Wow.
    Wonder how close it is too actual roll out on a mass scale. ??

    Could be very interesting in our Context down here re the National Broadband Network rollout and proposed spend of $43 BILLION :cautious:
    ( especially as now that = US$ !! :) )
    See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Broadband_Network

    While I regard a speedy national network as good thing many issues to be sorted...
    Not broad enough user base over a whopping square area.
    Gigabit speeds might be nice ?? not really sure what any home user would need it for ??
    Heh: if you build it they will come ....oh yeah .... that was a fairy tale.
    Fibre network also nice for redundancies in the future, enduser prices not settled at ANY level...and govt wholesale monopoly perhaps not a good thing...??
    Cost to connect homes..new endpoint connection...HW new home HW...so much to do and so little time.
    Recycling millions of superseded tech bits: cables,modems and ? ?
    And so we go on..
