Your perception of the NBN as a turkey or a treasure probably depends on whether you’re a ‘have’ or a ‘have not’.
Those with fibre to the premises (FTTP) connections are enjoying the fastest internet speeds, causing some property commentators to forecast a price boom off the back of the NBN.
Research from finder.com.au has attempted to draw a link between above average property price growth in some Brisbane suburbs and the number of FTTP connections in those locations.
While it might be reported on realestate.com.au does it make it true? Is the NBN really a catalyst for a price boom?
That might be overstating the reality. The NBN is one factor buyers and renters might consider when looking at a property but a lot of other factors go into the melting pot to influence demand.
Still, it’s an interesting exercise and it certainly doesn’t hurt to have an FTTP property in a data hungry world!
