Re: BS alternatives
"I don't agree with the first part. I believe that a combination of technologies can work for today's requirements. And yes, that will include FTTP. If you are saying that we must choose one and only one technology and that single infrastructure must work for everyone then yes, only FTTP/H will do. But, thankfully, there is no need to limit ourselves to a single technology."
The flaw in your argument is putting in infrastructure for a system that is already outdated and then having to rip it out and start again.
There is a use for wireless and a use for satellite both which was included in the original NBN plan. The only difference is the Libs have ripped out fibre to the home for fibre to the node which requires different infrastructure. At some point in the near future fibre will have to be run to the home which means every cent spent on fibre to the node is wasted.
The Vertigan report is a BS political spin report to hide the fact that fibre to the node is already outdated before they even try to start building it. Telling everyone that we'll only need 15mbs when the NBN's own sales figures show it to be utter rubbish, is just a Liberal lie to hide the fact that they cocked up.
