So Gungahlinistes, enjoying your NBN?

By johnboy 1 February 2013 68

Apparently the National Broadband Network got turned on in Gungahlin this morning.

Anyone on it wanting to share how joyful your life now is?

What’s Your opinion?

So, if anyone is reading this thread hoping for an answer to the question posed by johnboy rather than the furious verbal masturbation on the politics of the NBN here … well, head on over to the NBN Gungahlin thread on Whirlpool where there are actual reports on recent connections:

If the Liberals get in and decide to go with fibre to node. Does anyone else think that there will be premium paid for Fibre to house properties that were done before the Liberal government?

Will it make all that much of a difference? If you’re getting 10 times the speed then yeah you might find a person out there willing to pay a premium but I would suggest your telco will suck up the profit margin (in higher fees) before the end user gets to see it in property prices.

It might in the future not now probably not for 10 years or so. But if you were buying a house and there were 2 in neighbouring suburbs, all other things being equal, one with fibre to house and other with fibre to node would it be something people made decisions on?

Just looking at the coverage map on the NBN website, it interestingly shows Gungahlin, West MacGregor and what appears to be a single entity Mandir Ashram in Mawson. What is Mandir Ashram and why does it get NBN?

Its a aged care facility I think, old peeps need the faster speeds for online bingo 🙂
