So story goes that NBN is being rolled out in my area soon and they are rolling out HFC. Basically I don't want it, I just got a new $300 Fritzbox that would become a paperweight not to mention I don't want to buy new equipment / start a new contract with TPG. Not to sound like a prick about it but I don't want to support the NBN in any way shape or form really. I am happy with my current monthly cost and my speeds and don't want to deal with NBN congestion issues. I just don't understand how I can be forced off my current connection which I am still contracted to then told I have to pay for new equipment, pay more per month and start a new contract? On top of all this, the house doesn't have cable installed and apparently they won't install it in the location where my router is currently setup which is at the opposite end of the house to where the line comes in without paying additional costs.
