If you want good take up, consider areas where ADSL and cable arent available. I live in Upper Coomera (4209) and the poor quality Telstra lines plus no cable means nobody in my street can get broadband just wireless (the Oxenford exchange is overloaded). Its ridiculous, it costs a fortune and yet I have an optical fibre running past my back door.. You will be assured of a big take up rate and the gratitude of many customers who are currently very poorly served. Show Brisbane Council how to it properly - Bring NBN to Upper Coomera !

I live in Drewvale approx 20km's South from the Brisbane CBD.
I cannot even get a dial up connection from Telstra.
Telstra states that being 4.2km's from the exchange is just too far and I have too much line loss. So NO ADSL and NO 3G wirless ether. Drewvale is in a poor coverage arrea.
Telstra is using the NBN as an excuse to NOT improve your service delivery. The NBN network is at least five years away.

I live in Burbank approx 15km's South from the Brisbane CBD. I cannot even get a dial up connection from Telstra. Telstra states that being 4.2km's from the exchange
And now I complaint to Telstra for probably 16 years to remouved me from PAIR GAM and now they told me if I want to be remouved I have to pay for it I did not asked them to connect me to this CRAP CRAP CRAP of PAIR GAM and now I do not have my phone working for week . So NO ADSL2+ and NO 3G wirless ether. Burbank is in a poor coverage arrea. Telstra will NOT improve our service and lie lie I really hope to get NBN soon .

I am in Upper Coomera also and had the same dilemma. Ended up getting Satellite Broadband under the subsidised government ABG scheme. The latency is high but not unbearable. Not sure if it is still available but worth a try. They dont advertise this as an option but anything is better than nothing huh?

I am living near Algester and Calamvale 4116 but we have no reliable broadband service. 3G network is not properly covering our area. We need NBN as the small businesses and the shops around have no faster broadband support. Even we are 20km from Brisbane city, we are isolated and ignored. People are complaining about the broadband services and would definitely switch to NBN once it's available.

I ditched my ADSL for 4G wireless broadband and it's fantastic. Who in their right mind instigated this stupid expensive NBN project. Utterly mad!
