nbn™ blames cheap-ass telcos for grumpy users, absolves CVC pricing

In exactly the same way that everyone has the option of purchasing a Tesla S?

Hypothetically everyone within the FTTP rollout can connect at 1Gbps. The reality is that only 14% have decided that they can afford the cost of the 100Mbps NBN plans. The ACCC reports that on 31 March 2017 of the 1,080,761 connections only 77 where 250Mbps.

There is absolutely nothing in the data that indicates demand for 100Mbps and faster plans is likely to grow in the future. By waxing lyically about uber fast FTTP while ignoring this reality of speeds that people are selecting fibre fanbois are becoming increasingly irrelevant in the discussion.
