    When you get NBN the landline is disconnected , there is no copper , So if you have a "LandLine" as part of the package its VOIP technology anyway.

    I threw away the Modem that the ISP provided (at my cost) as they had too much control over it esp if you go with Telstra , they configure your modem so anyone can use your bandwidth , its called Telstra Air or Con Wifi, I mean Fon Wifi .

    I bought a TP Link Archer VR400 , bloody fabulous but no VOIP facility .

    Unless you have FTTP then there is definitely copper, I have copper from house to Node, a bit under 400m. Even if you are lucky enough to get FTTC then it is still copper into your house unless you spend the dollars on fibre upgrade.

    So the VR400 (AC1200) is "bloody fabulous" good to know.

    Maybe l should clarify no copper to exchange, The last little distance from your house to FTTN or FTTC is irrelevant . You do not have a physical pair to exchange & the technology is VOIP even if your phone is plugged into a wall socket.

    Yes, no copper from node to exchange. But that "last little distance" with FTTN can have a big impact when you start going over 400m. ACMA test a number of provider and off the shelf modems and all began to suffer with distances over 400m. Test results. It may have cost us more but I think they should have continued with the original plan of FTTP for most, this mixed technology is just a bandaid that will need to be ripped off eventually, and it will hurt.

    Some will just go with 5G when it arrives but as I can't get more than 1 bar of 4G at my place I don't think I'm gunna see 5G anytime soon.

    The decision to go with copper from node to house was a ridiculous band aid supposedly cost cutting measure which didn't actually cut costs, but produced an inferior result. The only way to improve it is to replace the copper with fibre.

    Sorry should have updated this a while ago. Went with the tp-link Archer VR400 AC1200, picked it up at Officeworks for $158. It has been in a couple of months now and has been faultless. The switch from Optus was without fuss. A phone call to Aussie Broadband (Australian call centre) and I was changed over within the hour. I had a minor glitch configuring the modem and a phone call to ABB tech support that was answered within about 2 min, problem sorted. And we ditched the landline.
    I have gone from a 25 plan to 50 currently running at 54.999 Mbps down and 7.720 up, so I'm quite happy with the move, considering Optus told me the line was only capable of 8 Mbps.
