It is all thumb twiddling and testing now, apparently it has been
connected and has been for ages, just waiting,maybe just a month or so
for them to try it all out before they give it to us.

So what happened ?

You don’t see too much activity at all here now, tho there are
still a few pillars with the temporary covers with the long handles
down each side. Looks unlikely we will be seeing anything before
Xmas. Maybe they don’t have enough testers or something.

First sign of any activity was 12-Aug, that still gives a full month
to go if mine is as slow as Keith's was, 5 months in his case.

How "imminent" is it you saw something happen months ago.

Light rail have made a big deal about actually laying some track on

Currently predicted to be next month, Jan.

Which fits with what Keith saw, we still have one month to go before
we have the same 5 months from starting to available he got.

> you saw something happen months ago.

Yes, first visible activity, digging the holes
for the nodes/green boxes was 12-Aug.

> but nothing seems to of moved?

There was lots of visible activity for 3 months. In the first couple
of weeks they were digging the holes for the green boxes with
mid sized trucks and then putting those on their own concrete
pads with multiple poly pipes to the relatively adjacent pillar.

Then for about 2 months after that there were usually white vans
parked near the boxes and monkeys fiddling with the wires in one
end. I spoke to one of them when he was doing that and you could
see that he was terminating the multicore cable on the vertical panel
up the entire narrow section in one of the green boxes. I said 'the
electronics is down there presumably', pointing to the rest of the
box which had the door still closed on it and he said 'yep'.

Sometimes the van was parked beside an existing pit with
a monkey or two in the pit. Wasn't obvious what they were
doing down there when I stopped and talked to one of them.

There hasn't been as much activity in the last month but you
do sometimes see someone down another prexisting pit still.

Some of the pillars still have temporary covers on them,
with long handles right down each side. But at least one
of them actually has the usual lettering on it so it may
not actually be a temporary cover anymore.

Not that useful into tho because it went along the old rail
right of way, particularly when it got out past the edge of
the CBD out where the PowerHouse Museum is.

Our power is underground with home power supply conneted through base

through base of Street Light Pole.


The part of the town that does have underground
power has green pillar things which are square roughly
every second house. Not that high, about 300mm

> The Same power source for Node.

Yeah, but given we have overhead mains in my street, there
should be some obvious connection to that and there isnt.

Tho come to think of it, they did have a bucket truck at the
pole mounted big transformer across the road from the node.
I spose they likely did mole it under the road and its powered
from there. Must have a close look at the pole the transformer
is on, it should be visible up that pole if that's how its powered.

It is all thumb twiddling and testing now, apparently it has been

So what happened ?

You don't see too much activity at all here now, tho there are
still a few pillars with the temporary covers with the long handles
down each side. Looks unlikely we will be seeing anything before
Xmas. Maybe they don't have enough testers or something.

First sign of any activity was 12-Aug, that still gives a full
month
to go if mine is as slow as Keith's was, 5 months in his case.

Just had someone whining in the local facebook group that Telstra
has refused to fix a phone fault because the NBN is imminent here,

How "imminent" is it

Currently predicted to be next month, Jan.

Which fits with what Keith saw, we still have one month to go before
we have the same 5 months from starting to available he got.

you saw something happen months ago.

Yes, first visible activity, digging the holes
for the nodes/green boxes was 12-Aug.

but nothing seems to of moved?

There was lots of visible activity for 3 months. In the first couple
of weeks they were digging the holes for the green boxes with
mid sized trucks and then putting those on their own concrete
pads with multiple poly pipes to the relatively adjacent pillar.

Then for about 2 months after that there were usually white vans
parked near the boxes and monkeys fiddling with the wires in one
end. I spoke to one of them when he was doing that and you could
see that he was terminating the multicore cable on the vertical panel
up the entire narrow section in one of the green boxes. I said 'the
electronics is down there presumably', pointing to the rest of the
box which had the door still closed on it and he said 'yep'.

Sometimes the van was parked beside an existing pit with
a monkey or two in the pit. Wasn't obvious what they were
doing down there when I stopped and talked to one of them.

There hasn't been as much activity in the last month but you
do sometimes see someone down another prexisting pit still.

About three weeks ago I saw some one having a snooze near our node with
his head resting on a small pit between node and a pole and jumped when
I came up, he pretended to talk down the pit then he said he was
connecting power to node box.

Interesting point, it isnt at all obvious how the power gets to the node
box.

None of ours have any connection to the mains poles.

Some of the pillars still have temporary covers on them,
with long handles right down each side. But at least one
of them actually has the usual lettering on it so it may
not actually be a temporary cover anymore.

Like Sydney's light rail still not past the good
coffee shop in Martin place after two years now?

Sure, but that is obviously a lot more work that with the NBN.

Light rail have made a big deal about actually laying some
track on George St between Park St and Bathurst St?
Meant to start at Circular Quay, this strip is around the length on
ones property

How long did it take for the existing light rail to get done ?

Not that useful into tho because it went along the old rail
right of way, particularly when it got out past the edge of
the CBD out where the PowerHouse Museum is.

(probably dig it up again, more fake news
by "our media" paid for by politicians)

Allegedly its available today in my part of town.

I'd just decided that they weren't going to do that on the
day before Xmas Eve but they have just dumped me face
down in the mud on that apparently.

It does appear to be available today at my place.

I was originally planning to stay with dodo until my contract ran out,
8 months @ $24/month break fee. Not attractive in the long term,
myrepublic.net is much better value for 100/40 unlimited, $60, dodo
wants $100 for that. Dodo will allow you to change to the NBN with
no contract penalty, but that involves a whole new 2 year contract.

Dodo's retention people could only offer me $95/month but were
happy to halve the break fee to just $99.

I signed up with myreplublic.net, but that froze on the final screen.
Rang them, but have now been on hold for 25 mins.


They did eventually answer the phone, had no record
of the online signup so I signed up on the phone.

I just ran my address through NBN and it said estimated start Jan 2017


Try

It is spot on with my place and my half of the town.
The other half of the town has 20-Jan-2017
