If you live in a network lab, you'll get gigabit NBN over HFC soon


> Speed teirs made sense with FTTP, because NBN could gaurentee, from client to NBN infrastructre a connection at that requested speed.

The guarantee is untrue. In fact in the NBNCo Corporate Plan it specifically describes the speeds as peak speeds. GPON has a maximum throughput of 2.5Gbps. A single GPON could service 32 premises each with 4 separate connections. This is a theoretical maximum of 128Gbps. Obviously the CVC revenue would easily cover any upgraded.

> With the MTM model. anyone on this HFC crap and FTTN gets what there given

82% of Australians on the NBN have chosen to order 25Mbps or slower. The majority of performance issues with the NBN have been caused by RSPs not provisioning unlimited plans with sufficient CVC.

What a small shrinking minority are asking for is the government to build a network with a digital divide with only a few ever experiencing the true benefits of fast broadband (100Mbps and faster).

Speed tiers are the single reason that FTTP changed to FTTN, because the evidence was clear that a growing number of Australians are prefer unlimited data to fast speeds.
