    $2315 fttc -> fttp

    pondering it

    on hfc now - cutoff date is aug 21

    live in old house and has old degraded phone line and realistically need to replace the whole phone line first and run a whole new line from the pole into my office where the modem is before connecting to fttc … wonder how much that would cost?

    To go from FTTN to FTTP is $ 9,512 inc. GST. Just imagine paying the $330 to find that out

  •  

    Was $330 for a simple quote! That is almost illegal!

    Wow what a scam. The cost for my unit is $14,941!!! This is for FTTC to FTTP

    The NBN has always disappointed me right from bungling our address and delaying the rollout only to our home in the entire suburb I think!

    There is an option for group application. But who cares? I hope wireless or 5G will someday put this dinosaur of a technology to bed.

    $2798 feels like a relative bargain. But I get 102 down and high 30’s up. Not sure I can afford the extra cost of higher speed plans anyway.

  •  

    Damn I only get $6,276

    HFC Change to FTTP

    Think our gov wants more tax payers to pay for the (already_outdated) infrastructures…

    I’m confused by all this, didn’t the nbn say in sept they are gonna upgrade people who want it to 1gb connections?

      Not in the cities I don't think. My read of it was that my Melbourne FTTC connection will not be upgraded.

    A bit on the pricey side considering much of the network may be getting an upgrade from next year… I can already get 1000/50 on my POI.

    I don't understand… why's everyone complaining?

    You SAVE $300 on your quote from our benevolent NBN Overlords.

    Mine is FTTN @ below adsl speeds , I don't use it as it is too slow and getting 150/50 with Optus home 4g.$13K and I'm 100mtres from the NBN ugly box round the corner as the crow fly's.Time to be patient wait and see if someone else pays nearby , then get another quote.This is where first in is not best dressed fair or not.

    So let me get this straight, I would have previously had to have paid $330 for a quote of $25k to upgrade my shitty HFC connection to FTTP?

    •  

      From memory there was actually 2 stages of quotes initially that you had to pay for, a rough estimate which would determine if it was possible, then an accurate quote. I may be misremembering from when it first came out and I was interested, then the quotes started coming in, lol.

    FTTN to FTTP - $11,915 inc gst! Outrageous!

    Just over $4000 to upgrade from FTTN to FTTP. Considering my neighbour has FTTP it's a bit more than I would have expected…

  •  

    Remember when Tony Trumbbott said in 2013:

    Just if I may add something. I mean, at 25 megs, you can simultaneously be downloading four HD TV programmes. So you can have four people in four different parts of the standard house watching the sport, a movie, whatever you might be doing. So we are absolutely confident that 25 megs is going to be enough, more than enough, for the average household.

    $3100 for me. Not bad but think i am happy with 100/40 speed for now

  •  

    $9,120 inc. GST (Blue Mountains, NSW)

    On 50/20 unlimited with TPG for now but sometimes it goes up to 70/20 I have noticed no idea why.

    I have changed to 100/40 and back to 50/20 now a few times to see what my max speed is like and on the past I did get up to high 80s but then it stabilised around low 60s so I decided that it was not worth the extra $20/month so went back to 50/20 which it usually hovers around now consistently.

    Upload speed I think can max out 20 and even 40.

    Interesting.

  •  

    Is the quote based on running fibre from the node you're connected to now, or the nearest node? I'm on the far end of a distribution area, so over a km from the node I'm connected to, but only 180m from the closest node. Quote is over $9,700.

  •  

    $ 12,377 inc. GST

    probably about the same amount of labour hours for the whole street to be converted too

  •  

    who actually paid 330 for the quote i wonder?

    •  

      lots of people
      it also used to be 660.

    •  

      Heaps of people, there's a big Whirlpool thread on it

      •  

        lmao now how many of them want a refund. or maybe they are too rich to bother with it

  •  

    What is this? Surely I can't be the only one who has no clue?

    •  

      Got NBN? Is it sh*tty fibre to the node? Want fibre to your house instead? You used to have to pay over $300 to find out how much that would cost, now you can find out for free.

      •  

        YOU HAD TO PAY TO GET A QUOTE?! Are you serious? Thats ridiculous.
        But yes I have FTTN, but thank god, it's really good and consistent. 100 down, 40 up consistently. (MAinly due to google wifi mesh)

    Shoot - if NBN is a govt company and NBN is govt funded initiative it is tax payers money.
    Using tax payers money why is their inferior connections provided to one area and a superior service to different areas?

    And why is NBN trying to make money here when everyone should have got the same and if any NBN should foot the bill

              @jv: First of all, not everyone had access to cable, secondly the more uses on cable the more it got hammered. Thirdly what was your up speed like?

                Thirdly what was your up speed like?

                •  

                  @jv: to me thats the best part of the NBN the up speed, I had cable also and the speed was good on cable especially when people started to leave cable for NBN, I was always getting 100+ but the up speed was soo annoying.

    Good news! Your location already has access to nbn™ Fibre to the Premises (FTTP). You don’t need to proceed with your quote.

      I find it hilarious how nbn is forced to confront and admit to the fact that FTTP is superior to the vast majority of the rest. So much for bridging the digital divide…equally. I guess giving people useable internet but then there being many tiers of it and a lot of variability is…close enough?

    Could this conversion cost ever be written off as some sort of tax expense?

    • -1 vote

      If you require the internet to work from home, yes.

    • +1 vote

      No. I paid an accountant to investigate and there have been rulings about this. You cannot claim it on your tax just for working from home, and it’s rocky ground even for a business.

      Capital expenses can’t be claimed and the specific ruling regarding NBN build costs was because it LOOKS like a capital expense, even if it is not, then in essence it must be treated like a capital expense and so cannot be claimed.

    • +1 vote

      I dont think it matters how far away you are from the node (at least from reading the WP thread). Since the fibre will need to bypass th enode its basically the same as a new fibre run.

  •  

    Well, I've got the pit outside my house - only 25m total from the curb to where it goes into my house and quoted $3,780. That's about twice what I wanted to pay, but probably not outrageous compared to some of the FTTN—>FTTP quotes I've seen…

    I might get it done, just so that I have fibre all the way & future proof.

    The distance to where the hfc starts must be very far away. The fttc one is to the pit across the road I think.
