Oh I agree ... that's why I suggested that a cheap mobile for a few, rather than an expensive battery (with all the work back-flows and ongoing maintenance and replacement costs) for the 99% who don't need or want it makes much more sense.

As you pointed out, telcos already offer this service for remote clientele ... so why shouldn't it be continued with the NBN?
