The NBN is Australia’s Maginot Line. An impressive series of defensive fortifications laid by the French after the horrors of WW1, the Maginot Line reflected the purely defensive stance of the Third Republic. It was rendered useless by the Wehrmacht as it simply bypassed the Line and the then superior French forces capitulated in six days.
So too with the NBN. As we watch the rolling out of 4G technology in Europe, Asia and the United States is Australia to be denied the benefits of 4G technology which renders useless (for most purposes) the NBN?
Australians – like most internet users – want wireless. They should get fast broadband wireless at low prices – they would except for the behemoth of the NBN.
The NBN: the most expensive and useless broadband technology in the world.
