So I just looked at the rollout plan for Fiber-optics in Australia (See: http://nbnco.com.au/rollout/rollout-map.html) and my area isn't going to see construction of it until December 2014. I know it's about damn time, but how can they take so damn long to implement it? Last I checked, construction of it began in 2010 so how does it take 5 years to finally begin construction in my area and THEN not complete until mid 2015, so we're talking almost 6 years in the making here.
Do not get me wrong, I think it's great we're finally catching up with most the other high-tech countries and 25/5Mbps to 100/40Mbps is a miracle for Australians that want to stream finally! but how does this take so long? Is it really that complicated for them to construct? Are there any Aussies in this forum running the new fiber-optic internet here in Australia? If so what's the speed like and how long was the construction once they started to get to work at it?
