What happens when they run out of money?

My home (in suburban Perth) still has a status of: "The rollout of the nbn™ network has not started in this area". If the government funding runs out next year, what happens to those unlucky souls who are still waiting for a connection?

I can't see many takers from the private sector wanting to fund the rest of the network. Does this mean that I might be stuck with a 5MB connection in good weather and about 512kb when we get rain?
