Hahaa, Broome's newest housing estate, Broome North is/will be NBN ready, but doesn't mention anything about existing Broome township having access to NBN.
What's the bet that Broome and Cable Beach exchanges, and the dozen or so RIMS around the place, will be stuck on congested infrastructure so even if you can sync at 20/1, your throughput won't be anywhere near expected.

For those who are interested, yesterday NBN Co released a NBN rollout
map using Google maps available at
Whats interesting about the map is that in Western Australia, we've
previously been seeing the following very limited NBN rollout schedule
(taken from <http://www.iinet.net.au/nbn/nbn-coverage.html>).
Nov 2011 Geraldton in build Map 2800 in build; 16,500 proposed
Oct 2011 Applecross proposed Map due Feb 2012
Oct 2011 Meadow Springs proposed Map due Apr 2012
Oct 2011 South Perth proposed Map due May 2012
Oct 2011 Pinjarra proposed Map due Apr 2012
Sep 2011 Vic Park proposed Map due Oct 2011
Sep 2011 Mandurah proposed Map due Nov 2011
The NBN rollout map has much more extensive rollout shown as being
planned for the next year, for example; instead of a marker for the
Applecross region there is instead a marker over Ardross that when
clicked states the following:
Applecross, Ardross, Bateman, Booragoon, Brentwood, Bull Creek,
Kardinya, Leeming, Mount Pleasant, Murdoch, North Lake, Willetton,
Fibre | Work to commence within one year - we will commence work from
Feb 2012 in phases with last work scheduled to commence in Oct 2012*.
Which suggests work has commenced or should be started today for this region.
