The National Broadband Network is progressing slowly, but individual ISPs are still working to get higher-speed connections to our homes. Earlier this year, Internode started offering a 25MBps connection on selected new housing estates, and now iiNet has a similar deal going.

iiNet's $49.95 per month offer (the same price as Internode's) is currently only available at the Alamanda Estate at Point Cook in Victoria. We haven't quite reached the point where fibre-to-the-home is mandatory on new estates, but it won't be surprising if that happens quite quickly. It's certainly pleasing news for the 1500 potential new property owners at the site, though the $660 connection cost might give a few of them pause.
