Deceptive comments from u! Internet was available but it was more to do about the security of the Interne.

Get ready for 10% annual price rises without any increase in quality of service or other benefits.

Every government service that gets privatized increases prices annually to meet shareholder dividend growth expectations.
with 5g and new satellite tech they will just price themselves out of the market if they do, it's such a fast moving sector no one is really sure what will happen next...

That news.com.au article was laughable, AS IF people could work from home on FTTN! It is the biggest bunch of crap ever.

No, they won't. Every agreement to sell a government utility includes anti-competitive legislation that protects the investment by shareholders. Otherwise, governments would not be able to sell their loser utilities.

A typical American point of view ...

Maybe what you guys need are competing companies providing your internet service. You might be surprised what some competition might do for quality and price.

We have that ...multiple companies ... all they did is overcharge us for inferior service.

Chattanooga is the pre-eminent example of what fast FTTH can do for an economy! But power companies elsewhere can’t do it—anticompetitive that.

The Libs should have just kept on rolling out fibre, with the new technologies and lessons learned in Project Fox it could have been done in half the time and at half the cost.

Nothing running on Telstra copper is going to give even ordinary but reliable broadband. FTTN punishes those more than 400 metres from the node cabinet, just ask Pinky!
