Malcolm is ignoring me too
I'm writing to ask about the implications of your 'broadband', and I use the term generically, plan for the future of communications both within and externally from Australia. Specifically, I'm interested in how your party's policy will treat those of us who already pay for 100Mbps Cable connections via either Telstra, or in my case Optus. Your plan 'guarantees' 25Mbps - I already have 100Mbps.
I've read your policy release document and it's pretty short on detail.
Will your party force me back onto a copper wire based connection, using a fixed phone line I don't use?
What is the estimated cost to maintain the aging copper twisted pair lines?
Does this mean my connection will get slower?
What about the current governments agreement with Optus to move all its customers to the fibre based, 1Gb capable NBN? Will your party's policy force me to disconnect my cable connection and move back several decades technology wise to twisted pair?
Will you force me to pay $2,000 to have the fibre I want connected to my house?
