So, I moved into my current property in October last year and signed up for Foxtel and Foxtel
Broadband. We're stuck on an ADSL1 connection, so we figured we could at least watch things on Foxtel when our connection gets congested. (4 millennials sharing an ADSL connection!)
When we signed up, I was aware that NBN was coming to my suburb (Now confirmed for November 2016) so I asked the phone operator if Foxtel would be ready for NBN. She assured me yes, they would be and their website said by the end of 2015.
It's now mid-2016 and Foxtel have removed the reference on their website and refuse to provide any other details.
That and there are major problems with their Foxtel Hub hardware - I've had to get it replaced, it has bugs that they seemingly have no interest in fixing - it's all a bit of a mess.
Does anyone know the deal with contracts and switchover to NBN? I've been told various reports that your ISP has to let you out of your contract when NBN turns on?
Not that I'm worried, under the ACL their promise to be NBN-ready has been broken and it was a major factor in me choosing their product, so I'm confident in arguing the case.
Also keen to hear any other experiences with Foxtel Broadband!
