I believe running optical fibre throughout every house in Australia would be a massive waste of taxpayers money, because unlike Japan, our population isn't crammed into a 50 cent piece. Sure, it's doable for cities. In Adelaide they're doing nice things with the mobile, wireless broadband. Watch the skies, mate. That's where the country will get speed from. Also, keep in mind that every new house being built in Australia must have fibre, so they're not entirely giving up on it.
