From the Alan Jones school of “who needs facts when you can just make s*** up”.

$50pm NBN base account, plus $10 for voice. Stuff all difference from your $35pm copper line plus base web access $30: http://www.telstra.com.au/internet/home-broadband-bigpond-elite-plans/

Oh wait – that’s ACTUALLY CHEAPER… And faster. And better.
Now, you were saying?

The event is for the symbolic turning on of the Library’s NBN connection. The PM was supposed to be there but a late change means Sir Tim Berners-Lee will be doing the honours. It is due to start at 10:30, although I hear he may be challenged to get there by then as he was giving a keynote in town moments ago.

The NBN crews have been incredibly busy all over the place, working through Xmas to boot. Hanging out for my letter…

Was looking at a job vacancy today with Canadian science communications video production group Minute Physics that could be based anywhere – as long as you have a really good connection…

Last week I was talking with a business in Adelaide who is in an area already connected to NBN – his business is a new web television network. Inconceivable business model on ADSL.

Those are the sort of opportunities NBN will open up. It is not all about movie downloads.

Written and spoken by a Greens member with colleagues who prop up the Labor government.

Written by a Gungahlin resident who’s put up with crap Telstra service for years and desparately wants to see this installed – for us and all the nation, rather than be skewered into a half-done mess by Abbott. You can disagree about whether the solution is right, but don’t be questioning my motives.

Jerk. Hiding behind anonymity jerk.

But there is a lot of truth in this. My ideological stance is provide tools to people to be creative and create business. This idea of saving coal miners jobs etc etc, is only a patchwork fix for an economy, that needs to diversify. The notion of throwing money out to people isn’t as productive.

I used to think that an unemployed person had access to training, surely funding the re-education of an unemployed person is better than, continually funding their welfare…. Yet the system doesn’t seem to work like that…

Still I can only hope if the coalition wins they’ll continue the NBN as is rather than put in a federal government version of the GDE one lane highway.

The problem is $20 a month doesn’t cover the connection costs. A quick search on http://www.whirlpool.net.au shows there is a $35 plan with exetel and $39 plan with internode. But as suggested if you don’t need it then a wireless/3G solution would be fine.

The thing is there are plenty of applications that will soon use the infrastructure.

Absolute bollocks.

Was connected on Wednesday (after NBNCo equipment failures meant return tech visits). Speed is fantastic and our plan is $90/month which includes 200GB download without peak times plus all home phone calls bar international and 1300 numbers, with the first 6 months half price.

There’s other cheaper plans than that. Helps if you don’t MSU

If you don’t care about speed and volume, then get a wireless card.

Senator Humphries is noting the ISPs are getting paid $108 to sign customers up.

Might be worth asking for a cut!

That’s a fair cut from 511,000 to 54,000
Al?

$4.50 a month off of a 24 month contract (assuming the ISP’s pass it through). Big deal. Prices start at $49.95 a month.

Abbott confirmed coalition policy is to retain the NBN, but as a FTTN network yesterday.

http://delimiter.com.au/2013/01/31/abbot-confirms-coalition-fttn-policy-hints-turnbull-will-be-comms-minister/

So that’s what taking over the NBN and getting it done sooner and at less cost means – i.e. doing half the job.
