After years of two tins and a string internet we are not listed on the NBN roll out site as having anything planned for our tiny hamlet.
A month or so ago the NBN mob placed an ad in the local paper informing us of a public meeting to outline a proposed fixed wireless tower ( or two ) to serve this town. It so happens that where they advertised placing one of the towers is on a patch of land that we drive by almost daily and according to google earth is 390 metres away from our house. Despite there still being zilch on the NBN site about any connections in our area, when I drove down the road yesterday I noticed a new power cable dangling in the air on a pole and a freshly dug and filled in trench leading up the road to a pegged out area in the paddock where they said they wanted to build a wireless tower.
Despite their website being in total denial we may even have a bit of the NBN here sooner rather than later it seems.
Despite "only" being 25 down and 5 up it still has to be better than the current ( getting worse by the day ) connection.
Please feel free to share your connection results and views on the state of the 'net in your home.
