The problem? Canberra’s own TransACT is also going to be made redundant.
Apparently TransACT are right now in the middle of rolling out more fibre (but only to the node), which is going to look a little silly if this new thing arrives.
However I do love Gary taking a swing at a government assuming the risk of running a data network when he was part of the Carnell Government which kicked off the TransACT data network. Surely they’re just scaling that good idea up?
TransACT in turn have expressed disappointment, and a hope they can still be part of the new plans.
