The current NBN offer that my ISP has put forward to me, is wireless.

They're only suggesting similar speeds up and down, though, and given how dependant on good weather it'll be, may lack stability.

I like those aspects with my (wireless) NBN.... yes it is quicker than ADSL2 was, but still woeful (half of) the expected and NBN nominated actual download rate.

I also get more outages, and the fact it also usually takes out my television (Foxtel) in those outages... only 3 today, admittedly only a few minutes each time today, but they happened twice in V8 qualifying.

In reality I would prefer the slower more reliable service I got from ADSL2.

Cricket Australia not happy with initial media rights bids.
The outcome could be telling for other sports such as Supercars.
For example the networks could dig deeper for Cricket and have little left for anything else.
Or the networks could tell Cricket "that's all there is" and as a result, rights fees slide back generally.
With Cricket splitting the broadcast properties into 11 sections, it could mean that if you were into Cricket and wanted to watch everything, you'd need multiple subscription products to do so.
Interesting times ahead.

You know we're being fooled when you can visit a small town in Malaysia, 100km away from KL and still achieve download speeds 10x that of NBN. Malaysia for heavens sake.

On average somewhere like Malaysia will be very low on the list given their coverage will be limited nationwide at reasonable speeds. My post was simply an observation based on what I was achieving when there.



NBN theoretical max is 100, Malaysian fibre 500.

Mobile download rates are good in Australia... it is the fixed lines that are woeful and worse download speeds than the average 3rd world nation.

Cricket Australia might be instructed to spit in one hand and wish in another after last night's shenanigans, Australian cricket already on the nose with a lot of its fan base already, now they're clearly cheats.

Yep - that felt like a strong possibility before the cheating began. Cricket Australia is going to be severely wounded by the national team cheating - it kinda breaks down the bedrock of the "clean" approach that CA tends to take.

You'd have to think that they're on shaky ground due to image problems thanks to the stupidity of the national team.

An embarrassment to Australians and Australia. Not only cheating but planning to cheat by a bunch of guys who are role models to thousands of kids.
Its just not cricket.

Poms and saffers have been doing it for years and both have been caught, so the mock horror is misplaced.

The sin is getting caught.
