Does anyone have any experience with the NBN via HFC? That’s what they’re using in my area and I’m wondering whether it’s worth the hassle of signing up for it. Do you have decent speeds? Where do the cables end up? Does foxtel use the telephone exchanges in which case it’s miles away, or are there more HFC nodes than exchanges and they’re therefore likely to be closer?
Neither me nor previous residents have had foxtel installed, so whilst there’s cable to the building there isn’t cable in my unit. It’ll be a hassle as the cable runs past my balcony and needs to get through the sliding balcony door somehow. The doors were replaced 2 years ago and the frame now takes up the entire opening wall to wall… had I known I would have had the cable installed behind the frame when they replaced the window. Not sure how they’re going to get the cable in now without damaging the window frame.
