If it wasn't such a laugh, you'd cry. NBNCo, the company that will be delivering a patchwork of network technologies in order to bring fast broadband access to all of us has conducted a test using technology from Nokia that could deliver 10Gbps performance - if only FttP was on the menu for all of us.
NBNCo says "The trial is a further demonstration of the company’s focus on providing technology to meet today’s demands while ensuring a strong path of development and upgrades to meet Australia’s future data demands".
The new NG-PON2 technology will, over time, augment the GPON technology currently offered to retailers selling services over the FttP network.
That's great if you're on the FttP list for the NBN. But for those us stuck with FttC, Satellite, or some other technology, it's a bit of tease.
