I was thinking about this the other day. I think it has the potential to relieve some of the pressures on our large cities and bring people back to country areas. The developments likely in telecommuting and virtual services will mean people won’t have to move to large central areas just to get a job to pay the bills. Imagine being able to keep running the family farm (at increasingly low margins) and being able to run an online store or consultancy business on the side to help pay the bills.

Personally I am on cable and always have been (one of the first things I check when I am looking to move) so it won’t make a huge difference to me (although I don’t pay Optus the extra to get NBN speeds yet).
