Australia’s National Broadband Network

Kevin Rudd, the Australian PM has just announced a National Broadband Network providing fibre to the home at speeds of 100Mb/s within the next eight years.

That’s pretty exciting! Except that broadband plans in Oz tend to be capped. I just worked out it would take me 34.1 minutes to use my current monthly quota at this speed.
