Pretty bad is being kind indeed! I did catch a bit
of the broadcast program,  and saw the clip on
SBS news last night.

To be fair, the  NBN advertisements do seem to
claim they can achieve all kinds of miracles from
bring  farmers into markets (carefully avoiding any
mobile phones and fishermen) , bringing better
education,  better health...all sounds a bit too
familiar to me.

I noticed, from the reference to Ganghalin,  that
appears the NBN will be buying that fibre optic cable
infrastructure from Telstra. I am surprised there was no
reference to centenial park.

Multifunction polis anyone?
