why the fuck would you start the project in tas....

but just because to be completed in 8 years does not mean people will be connected up to it once the regional area is complete etc. but i am quite pleased that the government are going to be the primary owners of this should make it quite transparent and what not

oh and a massive fuck you to telstra, might actually need to be competitive and offer decent pricing and support now

would be great to have fibre but for them to install the infrastructure, and the government to fuckin set it all up and shit will be easily 20 or more years and the cost will be astronomical to the government...

$43 billion over eight years in a super-fast national broadband network, in the ''single biggest infrastructure decision in Australia's history''.

dont be so excited its a fuckin long way off our kids will be using it for games before we get a chance

fucking huge news, lots of yahoo's at the office. I work IT haha ;)

MVZ cost is 43 billion, 51% government ownership. Other 41% is private investment. So not as expensive as you think.

Basically they are creating a new government owned version of telstra without the retail side
