I went from 30Mbit on Cable at the last place and the provider I'm with doesn't have cable out this way so I'm now on ADSL. Many KMs from the exchange. I just hit 2.1Mbit/s. Not even enough to watch Netflix. My PS3 decided it needed to update. Now I can't use it for an hour while it downloads the patches. My upload speed is somewhere near 100Kbit/s so those hundreds of photos I need to send to clients? Hours to upload.
The government was rolling out FTTH across metropolitan Australia. Then thw government changed hands and cancelled it insisting the 100 year old copper backbone was fine if it was supplemented with Fibre Nodes on every street corner. a system that is so broken and will cost more than the original FTTH system that only a super conservative government could think it is useable.
Fuck you Tony Abbott. Fuck you Malcolm Turnbull. Fuck you stupid people not smart enough to vote who somehow voted this pack of fucking morons in.
