I don't want the NBN

Answered

Having looked at the offers being made by various companies, including Telstra, I don't want the NBN when it is deployed here in the next month or so.  My Telstra cable service gives me a better speed at a cheaper price than any of the NBN offers.

 

My understanding is that everyone in an area must leave the existing Telstra networks within 18 months of the NBN being established in an area. If I have not voluntarily migrated by that time, what happens?  Do I just get duckshoved onto a Telstra NBN plan???  Or do I just get left with a basic phone service and nothing else?   What is the plot to handle us recalcitrants who know a good deal when they see one and know that that is the existing Telstra Cable service?

If you don't transfer to NBN you want even have a basic phone service as all areas that have access to NBN except satellite NBN have there phone service supplied via NBN.

Re: I don't want the NBN

When nbn is available in your area you still have 18 months to keep your reliable cable service and after that you have no choice. You can either move to nbn crap or you can cancel your service. That is the only choice you have. Disgusting isn't it.
