Sounds like what happened with the delay in Tel$tra installing the next 
generation network. As has been said on ABC this morning, 3 has been around 
since 2003.  Their problem is coverage. Optus is advertising their 3G 
product like crazy (love the ad with the giraffe looking in the woman's 
bedroom). Tel$tra should fix the coverage issue. But as most have also said 
on the call-in, people don't use the features, but the cost of the plans 
were lower, sort of like ADSL2 plans versus ADSL.
