I was having a chat with Tegan the other day about a bit of a sore point - our future internet connection. Just before we moved into our new place, the glorious address checker on the NBN told us that, yes indeed, we would be getting "fibre to the premises". Beauty. But now that we've moved in, our suburb has been "upgraded" to the not-quite-so-fast technology of fibre to the curb (FTTC).
