    At least you'll have an NBN connection. Sometime in the next decade. If the installers manage not to screw it up. And the govt doesn't shred the goalposts again. And the RSP bothers to buy backhaul. And they manage to find your house. And you're in an appropriately designated area, which doesn't get changed again by the next revolving door government.

    Maybe.

    Sadly I just moved away from an NBN connection (unlimited 100/40 for under $100), now I can only get optus 4G ($90+ starting at 1.5GB a month) even though I'm now closer to the city. Go figure. Stupid australian net.

    Having a piece of wet string that's about 50yrs old connecting me to the 2.5Mbit connection I have, limits my ambition somewhat. But if I were to guess, I would say likely in the high 20GB region (with a high percentage of that spent here) :)

    Here's my bandwidth usage for March. Kind of low as I was on vacation for a few days and didn't have any Internet Access for that time.

    100GB out and 67GB in is ... below average!?

    Edit: OK this should have been the first indication I was coming down with something. Yes, you ninny, it's not that much.

    I'm averaging 1TB of inbound bandwidth a month give or take a few tens of GB.

    TPG. its hard to argue with unlimited for $100 a month so long as you can live without a static ip.
