Hey America! Your internet is going to be so much better this January!

But, probably not in the way you'd hoped...

That's great!!!!!

(redefining "great" as "better than a slap across the belly with a wet kipper")

Don't show this report to Australia, Our FTN will be deemed to be "Best in the World" despite the fact that the best I can get is ADSL2 and many areas have to rely on a Satellite as their "Node". The previous govt had promised Fibre to the Premises, but that was deemed "unnecessary". Malcolm Turncoat would love this one.

Hmmm. Even up here, in the sticks, we have fibre.

We're not using it, personally, as it costs an arm, a leg and several internal organs.

To be fair though I access t'internet as much from smart devices as I do at home. Being able to get online while staying away from home this week was terrific.
