I expect that a price like this is likely to be for a commercial grade

In the new suburbs of Forde and Franklin (where I happen to be
building at the moment), TransACT is installing FTTH and are offering
10Mbps and 30Mbps plans.  The 10Mbps plans are around $55pm, and
30Mbps around $123pm, so while they are more expensive than the
average ADSL2+, they're not ridiculous.
