Good promotion for all of our hard work.
HAVE you ever driven down an old country road only to wonder how it was built back in the day?

Australia's NBN has now two competing plans:
- $41bn for a dogs breakfast (copper, FttN, vectoring, G.Fast, HFC, FttP) and   
- $43 for FttP
A modern economy requires a ubiquitous network to achieve digital productivity, introduce e-health, e-education, etc. Let's hope  that I am wrong and the new govt is right and that its dog breakfast will do the job..

Two competing NBN offerings. In analysing the new NBN plan, as it has been at least partly unveiled by the government, the politics are a major factor; and depending on what side of the fence they occupy the reporters either follow the lead of the Minister in criticising the previous government, ...

NBN Co given the opportunity to save the current NBN 24
I am very pleased with Malcolm Turnbull’s inaugural speech on the NBN.. For me the key issue was that the review that he has announced is not dogmatic’. He has asked first of all NBN Co to review their operations with the aim to come up with changes that will see lower costs and a faster roll out,  within the current parameters of the project, this being a mainly FttH roll out. He explicitly mentioned that he does not want NBN Co to come up with solutions that they would believe are fitting his or his government’s political agenda. He also didn’t appoint some consultants to do this which again could be linked to a political agenda; so in short full praise for the way Malcolm is taking the NBN forward. http://tinyurl.com/mcmwbxl

I have written about this before, interesting to see that it seems to get traction.
In this interesting position piece, Richard Adler, a Distinguished Fellow at the Institute of the Future in Palo Alto and recent keynote speaker at the launch of Qatar's National Broadband plan describes how mobile combined with ubiquitous internet is leading to a hyper-connected world.

Comments on my comments
Respected telecommunications analyst Paul Budde has heavily criticised the Coalition's new preferred broadband deployment model, describing its "Multi-Technology Mix" approach as "a dog's breakfast" of different technologies, which could turn out to be a "logistical nightmare" to deliver in practice.

The departure of Vodafone's Australia CEO Bill Morrow is a gain for NBN Co but will be a loss for Vodafone.  Will  the company survive? We do need to maintain strong mobile competition.

The departure of Bill Morrow from Vodafone might be a win for NBN Co, but it is a loss for Vodafone. Bill was specifically recruited as CEO of Vodafone Australia to fix the dramatic decline of the company after its significant networks failures two years ago. The fact that until now subscriber ...

The courses we follow are simply first class and we keep on coming back for more. The following will not effect that situation. What however, is really appalling is the fact the toilets are often very dirty (Law Centre) I realise that this is a student problem but it is up to the university to provide clean toilets. The other issue is that more often than not a ticket machine is not functioning in the parking garage (Sydney Uni), this time 2 of them - with no indication where to find a working one. At the same to the parking officers are more than eager to issue fines if you don't have a ticket.

We very much liked the museum. It is small but we spend a lot of time in it as it provided great background information on the history of this part of Turkey on the various panels around the artifacts. I also have to commend the staff, very friendly they specially opened the museum on our arrival.

We were here on the 25th of May 1974 (yes 1974). I remember it as beautifully situated in the forest next to a wide river.We also remember picturesque Smukala when we tried to find a restaurant. So our memories of this campaign are great!
