    they have announced a $6billion Aus handout to the monopoly owner of our infrastructute to upgrade to fibre to the node. When the current government's NBN plan is to the home. Also Mr Rabbit are you serious? 12mb/s is acceptable as a minimum for an overhual of our services? what about in 5 years time when we are saturating that bandwidth. This should be seen as an investment in the future not just about improving for today.

    Yes the government has CONroy but the Greens have vowed to block the filter, but the also have a MUCH better policy in the NBN

    12mb/s is very slow compared to what the NBN will bring, its going to start out with maxiums of 100mbps (12MB/s 10 times faster then 12mb/s) and will imidiately be upgradeable for 6% of 32 people to get 1Gbps, thats residential homes... business's will have there own dedicated lines.


    so in less then 8 years, expect australia to have 125MBps plans avalible :D ( i think its 2 years or less for north brisbane, where i currently live :D )

    i really hope the greens get voted in and the NBN gets compleated without the filter.

    yeah hopefully the Greens get the balance of power. Though i am disappointed with the race to the bottom this election, has been rather pathetic.

    lol, this is the only election i have ever been interested in :D it will decide the fate of the future network for the whole of australia..... on 1 hand we have Gigabit Fiber with no filter.. or should laber get in.. we will have this stupid filter (simmiler to china's)... but what i really dread is if libs get voted in.... No fiber internet.... we will be stuck with what we have now basicaly.



    very few people in australia get over actual 10Mbps connection speed, the libs will only be ensureing 12mbps to most australians. FTTH or FTTP (read fiber to the Home/Premises) will dramaticaly enhance australias network from 12Mbps to over 100mbps... 1Gbps if you pay extra, and that will be cheap to upgrade past 5Gbps.


    i want to know what mussles thinks about all this ^^
