Telstra has just emailed me to say that the NBN is being rolled out in my suburb. We won't be getting fibre to the premises. The closest node is three streets away. I am wondering if the NBN will actually work with the node being so far away. I have a fixed phone line with a Telstra Smart Modem that Telstra tells me is NBN ready. I use ADSL broadband and Wifi. The whole street uses Wifi of one kind or another. Copper wires to each residence are underground. Some neighbours have satellite dishes on their roofs as we are not far from a hill with mobile phone towers on it. I have a number of devices (landline--wall-mounted in the kitchen, desktop computer, laptop, tablet and smartphone). I also have phone outlets in three other rooms. Could may be go without the landline but not sure re security in case of the NBN dropping out if there is a power outage so the smartphone would not work? My Telstra bill is pretty large––$210 plus each month. Would really like to reduce it. This is down about $70 since I had an additional landline removed. (It took Telstra 3.5 months to do this causing me enormous stress). I am wondering what the best solution is. Anyone got any suggestions? Thanks very much in anticipation.
