[AusNOG] $300 NBN Connection Fee for FTTP?

My daughter is looking to buy a vacant block
of land in Foster Victoria and build a house on it. Foster is pretty
strange in that large parts of the town seem to be on NBN Fixed Wireless
and other parts on FTTN, but if she builds a new house I understand,
according to the NBN website, that FTTP is the preferred technology to
build. It would seem pretty dumb to lay new copper in order to provide FTTN
when my daughter will probably not want a landline phone.
It would be cheaper to just say 'connect via fixed wireless' but looking at
Street View it looks like the fixed wireless tower is hidden behind trees.
Is this what is likely to happen, that NBN Co run a dedicated fibre from
the closest node to the new house?
Any tips appreciated.
Regards Ken Sayers
