Fibre to the Home

This is great news today for Australia. Laying fibre optic cable to most homes and businesses in Australia will mean we get internet access speeds of 100Mb/s and better - expanding up to around 1Gb/s. OK, many websites can't feed you that sort of speed, so if it were in tomorrow, it wouldn't make a huge difference. However, this will take 8 years to complete (todays guess), but I'd say most of us will have it in around half that time. Do my street first!! This really is an investment in the future and I applaud the decision.

This will be the first time that getting 'extra fibre' will stop most australians having the shits!
