Lucky for us then
Fibre to the node is a completely useless 'solution'.
People who expect that the cabinets on every street will be nice and inconspicuous obviously haven't been following the outrage in the U.K. where this has been implemented.
Anyone who thinks it will also deliver enough bandwidth for future applications probably agreed that '640 KBytes of RAM was enough for anybody'.
Fibre for schools sounds great, but if a sick kid can receive satisfactory schooling at home over fibre, obviously a healthy one can too. I don't see schools as we know them lasting long after this roll-out.
They will become offices and studios where lessons are prepared and presented, Kiddies will have to learn to do sport on their own time which should also provide a boost for local sporting clubs.
Not to worry too much though, any company that needs clerical work doing and clogs the nations roads moving bodies to fill seats in a 21st century counting house will be looked at very meaningfully, so there's likely to be at least one of the parents at home teleworking.
Oh yes, I see huge changes resulting from the NBN.
