I shudder at the thought of being compulsorily NBNd. I'm getting an average of ~70Mbs down and 25Mbs up under VDSL2 at the moment. The NBN will feel like going back to dialup.

Telstra has all-but-blamed nbn™
The unspeakable in hot pursuit of the uneatable.
Dealing with Telstra is its own punishment.
I'm sure it'll be managed at least as well as the NBN.
Who or what is a crackas?
This twunt is not a skeptic - he's a denier.
Skeptics examine the evidence and base their conclusions on it.
Wouldn't it just be easier to install an adblocker?

No. Just no.
" leftish-of-centre " - the Labor Party??????? Shirley you jest!
Here's an idea! How about we nationalise Telstra?
Decent stories and good acting make up for any amount of shite sound and bad projection.
No amount of sound and projection engineering can make up for the fact that Star Wars is is just cheap and nasty space opera that would have worked equally well (!) in the Wild West.
"as well as knuckleballs and sliders"
I understand that a slider is a type of hamburger, but wtf is a knuckleball?

A bloody disgrace

What have they got against foot fetishists?
"Australia remains years behind reality."
Since I swapped to VDSL2 from cable, I've been getting consistent 70Mbps download and 30Mbps upload speeds. I understand that, when I'm compelled to change to the NBN when it arrives in my area in 2018, I can look forward to 25Mbps download and who knows what upload. No wonder they call it "fraudband".
Thank the kriste I've got a couple of years of decent service until I'm forced into this shite.
Twas the week before Xmas ... not a creature was stirring – except Microsoft admitting its Windows 10 upgrade pop-up went 'too far'
Re: 'We want people to be running Windows 10 from a security perspective'
"A security perspective! Yeah! That's it! We'll say it was a from a security perspective!"
I wouldn't let Telstra secure a roll of toilet paper.
It's a fecking verb.
Yeah! What's that in football fields?
Re: "try to leverage its market power"
Anyone using "leverage" as a verb is automatically disqualified from entering the company of adults.
Another triumph of privatisation.
Can't fly in the rain, can't start in the wind. A triumph of modern marketing.
There are ads on Facebook?
That is all.
Welcome to the Banana Republic of Australia.
All I can say is thank the gods for Fluff Busting Purity.
MS gets it right for once

Re: Australia Post's search for relevance ...
"C'mon AusPost ... you can do better than this!"
No they can't.
Starbucks and Microsoft - a match made in heaven.
"Food" chain McDonalds, but not "coffee" chain Starbucks?
Starbucks is to coffee as McDonalds is to food.

"ommon sense naw. Follow the money. If they don't rule for MS this will certain sector of the US economy , Sure you might not like them but this would of screwed over apple,google,Face book and just about every tech company that wants to do business in Europe."
Could we have an English translation, please?
"An after-party invite sent out to interns..."
"Invite" is a verb. The noun you're looking for is "invitation".
Or are you just trying to impress college age kids?
Australian Information Industries Association*: you're not the future of democracy, so please shut up
What could possibly go wrong? I'm sure Diebold would be more than happy to sell us one.
MacDonald's New Zealand and Australia restaurants?
They have restaurants now???
I'm an Australian and I still don't know what "shirt-front" means.
Using Telstra is its own punishment.
What does the FBI have against foot fetishists?
Or did they mean paedophiles?
