Epic thread is epic. I would sincerely hope that once the NBN gets fully rolled out, the price of hosting bandwidth intensive services would come down somewhat, and make hosting an Australian server more attractive for Riot.

Nah, NBN is probably going to cost more than the copper networks for quite a long time. Sure, it might be cheaper per Mbit for large traffic sustained connections, but it won't actually prove to be that much more attractive than our current infrastructure. I found a cost sheet somewhere a few weeks ago and it looks like, for the time being anyway, the bandwidth:cost ratio isn't going to change as much as people seem to be hoping, not to mention that most districts and areas will not have NBN coverage for the next 5 years. If Riot said they were going to wait for the NBN, it would really be more like saying that it isn't going to happen.

....Even if it is a plan for Season 4, some update would be better than nothing. I'm sure many of the competitive Aussies and NZers would like to enjoy the ever growing E-Sports community of League of Legends.

I agree, even a little hope for next year is better than no hope at all. Has there been any progress at all since 9 months ago when you said you were looking into this?

With the slew of recent servers, such as greece ect, i personally was extremely exited that we may yet have a more localised server. Sadly, no news as of yet
