Feeling somewhat peeved regarding this ..

All over the net today .. "In all, about 18,000 homes now have access to
the NBN, but only about 2,000 paying subscribers have been registered by
the NBN Co, making for an 11 per cent connection rate." 

A national broadband network?

Surely, with an 11 per cent network connection rate the NBN can hardly
be called a national broadband network, which must include actual take
up, and utilization, to be correctly termed any computer etc network.

Seems to me that ongoing usage costs must be the problem? Whatever, at
this rate, it's a dud. And, something needs to be done. Quickly. Hence
though a firm supporter roll-on any and all competing net technologies.
