Enterprise Ethernet is certainly a better product, but the costs aren't necessarily suitable for a residential customer, regardless of the possibility of a free build (which is not always the case).

$5100 https://whrl.pl/Rfme7I which is ridiculous although these posts from

Really if you want fibre you may as well take advantage of the free builds on nbn enterprise ethernet at the moment than do a tech change.
