    Mia Freedman comes to Tony Abbott's defence.

    How Fast is the NBN?

    Site dev'ed by tech-heads, not politics types, incidentally. The bloke a Liberal voter, but, and Turnbull going after him is pretty rank in my book.

    Hang on, where has this idea come from that the bandwidth of the NBN is all about uploading media like video, etc.? I've seen a few clearly Lib types perpetuating this and it puzzles me greatly. Have none of them heard of cloud computing? Do none of them realise companies want to not only move all their server storage into cloud repositories but also, eventually, run all of their business software there, OS's, etc. too? Do they have no idea that home computers, tablets, etc. are headed in exactly the same direction and that to pull all of this off, massive bandwith is needed (i.e. down and upstream)?

    It's not about just media, FFS. Turnbull sounds like a ****ing luddite.

    Such a shame that debate on such a major piece of infrastructure gets boiled down to such meaningless soundbytes. Websites like that don't help because it's boiled down to the most frivolous applications of the technology. Everyone knows Labor's NBN is faster.

    Why not show a scenario where a rural doctor is performing urgent lifesaving surgery via hookup with a world leading specialist on the other side of the country? Or maybe a component of a degree that includes video hookups with a world leading researcher on the other side of the world? Maybe a sensor system that allows for monstrous amounts of transport data to be pooled to provide real time information on traffic movements? Some of that may seem far fetched, but the whole point of this project is that both private and public sectors will be able to develop systems that aren't currently possible because the infrastructure won't support it.

    The biggest problem with the current technology is that it isn't stable and uniform. It's extremely difficult for services to be developed because there isn't reliable infrastructure. Imagine if the amount of electricity capable of being provided varied from household to household. How can fridges, lightbulbs and heating systems be developed if the manufacturers didn't have that kind of information?

    But lets instead focus on how much faster our FB photos will upload.

    EDIT: Also, what TC said.
    Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.

    Too many bones, not enough CASH!!
