Is the NBN on its way?

When the National Broadband Network was first announced I was excited, but then disappointed as the area I lived wasn’t even listed as planned. Every so often there would be something in the news about changes to the rollout, but no dates for where I live…

My parents are on Optus Cable and recently have been contacted about moving to the NBN. However there is not much information about plans or costs, so my advice was to wait, because shouldn’t they have eighteen months to move? Plus who says Optus will be the best deal for them?

This has prompted me to look up my address, it was a pleasant surprise to see a date of April 2017. That is only a few months away, but the pessimistic part of me is expecting that to be pushed back.
