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?
