A lot of things are going to be different for wireless serviced customers.
For example, there's effort going in to defining how multicast IP delivery
is going to work on the NBN at the moment, but I doubt anyone has any
answers about whether/how it'll work for those subscribers who happen to
be on 12 Mbps wireless ports.
(when you hear people hyping the benefits of high bandwidth, remember
that people in the middle of nowhere who'll benefit most from things
like distance education and telemedicine will be on 12Mbps/1Mbps wireless,
so those applications will need to be able to work on that kind of
