Special Feature: Dr Turncoat and the wrong NBN prescription

Postby HBS Guy » 11 May 2015, 18:55

Had a look at the Minister for Nobbling Telecommunications, Mr Malcolm Turncoat lately? He has aged hugely in the last couple of years. Wonder if that is due to his killing the NBN and replacing it with a mishmash of FTTB/FTTN/HFC that is unable to boost the economy? FTTH can. Stands to reason. If we are living in the Information Age then it is obvious that being able to get information to where it is needed quickly and reliably would be a good thing. That is what FTTH would have done. The MTM mishmash can increase speeds a bit tho some will suffer a fall in speed due to the nature of VDSLx but it will not be a game changing exercise anymore. Does it make sense to buy the copper to run FTTN over it? Doesn’t look like it to me!

Going to be hard for the 2016 Labor govt to roll out FTTH after all the crap the Libs pulled. But FTTDp offers a way to get it done cheaply and quickly: Fibre to the Distribution point, a mini node that serves about 4 premises the owners of which which can choose to use the existing copper tail into their property or pay for fibre to be rolled out in their premises. Whatever, pulling fibre closer and closer to houses, businesses and government services must be one of the highest priorities! Build that economy UP!

Now, we have seen Netflix arrive here and since they have arrived here a lot of us have seen our copper internet stagger under the load. Netflix have done more than that—it has blown apart the ridiculous assumptions of Capt Turncoat’s much lauded (by Capt Turncoat who however didn’t wait for his crony to write but pre-empted its finding, almost as if he knew what that finding was going to be, oh, surely not? so–called Cost Benefit Analysis

Business Spectator wrote a great column about this, you will see an extract and link right here.

You can see the copper just isn’t up to high speed by the fact that if you get the stated speed once per day then the copper doesn’t need to be “remediated” (i.e. new copper rolled out!)

It just gets worse and worse! Dr Turncoat’s wrong prescription is not just wrong, not just inadequate we won’t get a correct prescription from him! Copper remediation is just not going to happen! :sad

If you look at my Climate Change thread post of today you will see me comment on how the real NBN could have helped fight climate change by reducing road and air traffic by telepresence, telehealth and telecommuting.

This worst ever Australian government, this shambles in every day speak, just sets us back in every way on every day!
