For Like minded people who like to see-
I just came across an article in The Land this-morning, which probably sums up better than I could, the benefits the NBN will bring to rural areas. Here is the article, and the conclusion:
"Done right, the NBN will help liberate more families from cities and allow them to flourish in the bush, where their children can swell school numbers and their Internet-powered earnings can keep shop doors open.
The economics might be tricky, the technology yet to be determined, but the vision behind the NBN—of all Australia on a high-speed connection—is a vision capable of transforming the demographics of the bush."
