I have been hearing this 'connected soon' for 3 years
I have planned and built a house with smart features since then, still no nbn. And not likely soon since the rollout is staged. In that time the copper has gone from 2Mbps to 10Mbps, which is close to the basic NBN anyway ( and on NOW) . Though of course the top NBN is 100/40, which is 40 if you are using it 2-way, and strangely enough having been sold higher speed broadband people are tending to go for and use higher than planned.

Fast tracked NBN means more announced next year, more the year after , more the year after that
then after 3 years the rollout begins, which means another 18 months. Maybe connected by 2015, if NBN is still alive.
Imagine what the slow track must be like.
