Hi Guys, Is anyone else angry that we did not get NBN but got Opti Comm instead? I thought we were promised NBN. Optic Comm is absolute rubbish and there are not many service providers. So upset at the moment! Half the estate is on opticomm i.e. stage 11 to half of 13. We are in 13 with opticomm as...

Hi Guys, @Canopus No idea.. we didn't get that request from the builder.. yet. Not sure if they will request this in the future.

Hi @Andor Your build is moving exceptionally fast. Touch wood. Did you opt for Simonds Xpress? From the updates and photos you have posted, it appears to take just about 4 months from site start. Enjoy the new home!!

Hi @icheema Not yet; expected in the next 2 weeks. Hi Canopus, Has the land titled yet? Thanks. Hi @icheema The plans have been lodged; this process is new to me but from what I understand it takes 1-2 weeks from lodgement to title. And then settlement within 10 days.
