Another Reason Why The NBN is a Colossal Waste of Money

From Next Big Future - 5G Wireless Networks operating at up to 50 gigabits per second will be in service by 2020, just on 6 years from now.

Right now more and more people use wireless devices, hard wired desktop PC's are on the way out.

But that genius RUDD and his crew of brains trust worked out the NBN on the back of an envelope and are spending billions on building something that is almost obsolete already. By the time it's built it will be a museum piece.

Yet 47% of the population will still give Labor their first vote.

Twice during the last debate Rudd made idiotic statements about NBN. Firsly his breathless claim that a students were using the NBN to talk to NASA. Earlier that day I had been skyping my Dad in Canada on ADSL. Then the even more dirisable linking of NBN to aged care (not for the first time). Patient care system require negligible bandwidth. I was delighted Tony let that through to the keeper. Never interrupt you opponent when he is making a tit of himself.
