I wonder if there is a truth in advertising 
aspect to this alternative provision in the NBN 
Co.'s communication to the public. Surely the 
ACCC will be looking at this as should ACMA.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the 
world is to paint or sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
