You mean like where they launched the NBN, showing all the wonderful
stuff that you could do with the NBN, while actually connected using
ADSL2+ because the NBN connection didn't exist?

Nothing is advertised AFAICT so any behaviour now can vary without
notice. The Business NBN comes with static IP address
IIRC, a static IP address used to be an add-on for e.g. Voyager
Home, costing a non-zero amount per month ... $9.95? That made most
of the cost difference between Home and Business accounts by the
time I hopped onto ADSL in 2005.
Looking at the plans, which aren't directly comparable as Business
plans have higher uplink speeds and the Business plans have a phone
service bundled by default (it's removable). The Personal "Fast" plan
costs $54.95 provides 25/5 Mbps. NBN Business 1 costs $69.95
(without phone) and provides 25/10 Mbps... i.e. $15/month difference
that has static IP, twice the uplink speed and 10GB more download
data. Business quota is downloads only; uploads aren't counted and
downloads are "anytime" compared to the Personal plans'
So it's not like you'd be getting "nothing more" with the Business
plan. It's up to you to decide if it's worth it to you.
