The ABC reports that a Victorian IT consultant, whose home is less than 100 kilometres from the centre of the city has been given a quote by NBN Co for between $800,000 and $1.2M to upgrade his connection to the NBN from satellite to fibre.

NBN just announced a whole bunch of new initiatives it hopes will "raise the standard of service quality" to the Hybrid Coaxial-Fibre part of the network. To do so, new connections have been halted, effective immediately.
If you are in an area set to get HFC, and haven't already - this means you're going to be waiting at least six months longer for your NBN.
I'm about three weeks away from moving house which means I need to start getting serious about choosing service providers for my core utilities: water, gas, electricity, internet access and telephony. I'm happy with my existing electricity retailer so I'll be taking them with me when I move and the phone is covered as I haven't had a landline for about five years. I'll shop around for a gas deal and I have no choice when it comes to water. But the one that has me most concerned is internet access.
Given the NBN isn't likely to hit my new address for about 18 months and it will most likely be over HFC what do I need to think about?
