NBN Co Offering Fibre To Wireless Customers If They Pay

The reason the NBN includes a percentage of the population getting wireless instead of fibre is that Australia's geography and size make it very, very expensive to connect some remote homes. But it's not impossible, which is why it's great to hear that NBN Co is offering to connect Tasmanian residents outside the fibre footprint, so long as they foot the bill...

Mitchell Bingeman at the Australian is reporting that while NBN Co is making the offer, construction companies believe the cost of connecting these homes will be up to 10 times more than connecting homes within the fibre area.

While most remote homes probably won't be able to justify the expense of a fibre connection, it's still good to hear that they are at least being offered the opportunity.
