How is the NBN different from what we have now?

National Broadband Network 101

The NBN will provide Australian homes, schools and businesses with faster internet, at 100Mbps – which is faster than what we have now. The network will connect 90 per cent of all Australian homes and businesses with optical fibre instead of existing copper wires.

Using the next generation wireless and satellite technologies, the NBN will also provide faster internet speeds for more remote parts of rural Australia, delivering speeds of up to 12Mbps. The NBN will be Australia’s first national wholesale-only open access broadband network

Seems great, but how much will be the cost for us (consumer) to have this technology? Am paying my phone bills, internet and mobile into such much price and am limiting my use because of the cost, but in a meantime we cannot live without this things were everyone use to it now.

Wayne the NBN.co website will shortly have a map showing progress and projected progress with a Q and A with major population hubs listed with a projected timeline, there is still a few years to go yet however, so dont expect it within 6 months.
