How is NBN pricing compared with other country?

I am presently holidaying in HK and has just visited a friend who has just installed Fibre-To-Home service. It is interesting to compare what people in HK pays and that will be charged by iiNet and Exetel using NBN service.

HK is charging HK$99 (which is about AUD14) per month. Australia is one of those few rare countries that still imposes download limit. The HK service does not have download limit.

With is low cost, I am surprised to find in a building with 28 apartments, only 2 have taken up this kind of service. The installation fee is only HK$300 or AUD43 with a contract period of 2 years.
