    I really don't get the hate for HFC. I'd be delighted to have it. no line length issues or potential for interference like FTTN ( and which includes FTTC to an extent), a lot cheaper and faster to deliver than FTTP, and quite adequate bandwidth once DOCSIS 3.1 is delivered.

    I've seen reports on Twitter of people getting installation timeframe with tech site visit estimates of between now and end of the year, effectively suggesting they're scheduled to visit any time within the next 6 months.

    so would i, anything would be better than my trashed adsl

    i was talking to the neighbour yesterday and he confirmed his adsl had also gone to shit since nbn have been working in the area and he's on a different telco to me.

    that would be for network build and drop installation time, which is not a service installation. it's a notification of the timeframe for the entire suburb-level area to be enabled.

    fit for purpose doesn't mean it does every single thing every single person wants it to do at time of deployment. it means it does what it was designed to do.

    In that case you and I have different opinions on what the design should include.
