Here is what internode said "...initial residential NBN plan pricing will
start at $59.95 a month, with a port speed of 12 megabits per second (Mb/s)
downstream and 1 Mb/s upstream and a 30 gigabyte (GB) data quota....All
Internode¢s NBN plans include $10 worth of monthly call credits for the
bundled NodePhone Voice over IP (VoIP) telephony service."


30 GB is not much. My home uses about 120GB a month.



Also they say that it will be dearer for regional areas so breaking the
federal government promise of uniform national retail pricing.

I don't pay that now and get 120Gb downloads and if I go over its shaped
to 1500. I struggle to use anywhere near that amount but its good to
have, 30Gb is a bit short though.

Heaps of downloads/web sites never reach my available access speed now
so how come I need a faster BB.

A mate is getting conected to NBN this month - he did apply for a change
over - Ill get back with his experiences shortly. I can't see him doing
much better than what he has now.

His first complaint was them stringing cables on the electricity poles
and interrupting his view. So all them trenches you see getting fibre
layed is not all true.

Thats about what you pay for most DSL plans when you count both the
plan cost and the phone line rent. Bit more than some naked DSL plans.

You'll end up completely blind if you dont watch out.
