I have a particularly bleak view on Australia’s Broadband situation.And this story only furthers this view.
The promises of Australia’s broadband being upgraded by 2012 were whimsical at best.
And now they’re arguing over Tasmania still? At this rate, should be done 2016. Maybe 2020.
I understand that Australia is a large country. Due to the geographic nature of our country, it means that our country is naturally going to cost more and take longer to do. And it will also cost more to do. But politics can suck my nuts. Do you think that with the amount of money we make from Import/Export and Tourism that Australia can AFFORD to have such a Broadband system? Roughly speaking, Australia is about 5 years behind the rest of the world and with this sort of arguing bullshit, this figure is only going to grow expendentially.
