> To address your point regarding 80% subscribing at 25Mbps or less, I suspect that is because many of the customers on FTTN realise that they are still going to have trouble with the copper connection from their house to the node and that paying extra for the higher bandwidth is a waste of money.

How about instead of wild speculation you look at the data provided by ACCC in the NBN Wholesale Market Indicators Report. It shows that speed tier take up is relatively similar across all forms of fixed connection. It is the ignorance of fibre fanbois that has lead to the current situation.

So you are suggesting that most of the >80% on 25Mbps or faster don't care about their internet connection?
