    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.
