Australia ranks 50 on country list ranked by internet speed. Many Asian countries are ahead of Australia

I know. Shameful isn't it,? that countries in the developing world. all over.. have better internet than we do.

I wonder how that happened. ? OH yeah that's right.. the Liberals won government, partly because they claimed a quicker, cheaper internet. WELL that real y went arse over tit didn't it.?

But listen to THEM? they will still tell you lies about it, even tho we KNOW it is fucked.. Fubar

I noticed they are all small countries... Usa and Canada, Australia, Russia, Brazil then China for the big countries....
Very easy to have concentrated internet over a small area :) Australia aslo went up 2 spaces, so not going backwards..
Your right though the Libs biggest mistake was not just scrapping NBN and starting again, no matter how much you polish a turd......

i recall when i first started chatting to my wife over the internet,I was on dial up and to download a move you'd hit 'download' and go to bed ... it might have been finished by the time you woke up the next morning, my wife, in a country that was barely above 3rd world, nad had only recently come out of communist rule, was able to download movies in mere minutes

shame the libs had to screw up our attempts to catch up

Australia rose 2 spaces to 50? Probably due to a couple of farmers getting internet and increasing their speed from zero.

Yes. Copper does not work. Install fibre ASAP, just do it now not in 5 years. They don’t do that 5G will take even more customers away from the NBN.

It was always going to be a stupid decision by the Libs. The Telstra copper is just too thin for decent FTTN,

Well, they want to give you bread and circuses not Proton Energy Power Pills 😂🍿🍿🍿🍿🍿🍿🍿

SpaceX has begun applying for Starlink gateway licenses in at least four Australian cities – Broken Hill, Boorowa, Wagin, and Pimba – in one of the final steps needed before Starlink internet can begin operating on the continent.


SpaceX began filing for gateway licenses within the past few days. @VedaPrime on Twitter showed the applications and frequencies, locations, and emissions predictions for each site.


Wont be long till Australia gets amazing internet coverage :) (high speed, low ping before Mr Monk can rattle on about satellites :p )

Satellite is many to one internet just like a wireless broadband tower. The first one or two will get good speed but lousy ping, add another 1000 to the satellite and the speed has bogged right down. Same will happen with 5G.

that's why Space X will just add another 1000 satellites....and the ping on these are good, 20-30 times closer than other satellites........so 20-30 times less ping time.....

It wil still be many to one with a 1000Km return trip./

It may be great for the really isolated stations etc but not a solution for the 80% out the metro areas.

There just are laws of physics that make FTTN/SpaceX not the best solution for the majority.

20ms ping FFS is the average they are getting monk, educate yourself.......that is enough speed for full resolution live gaming, about the fastest you will ever need....live hi res video only needs around 100ms

Info for skylink....
The speed of light is 186,000 miles per second and the orbiting satellite is 36,000 KM above earth. Calculated out, satellite latency is roughly 500 milliseconds or 500ms ping, that would be a 7MS ping for 500km's above earth...

Elons aiming for 9ms ping when the network is finished....
so a satellite 500km's out will be a ping of 3.3ms (speed of light 300,000 km's a second or 300km's a MS) THAT is Physics.........

will change speed but not ping.....
nbn's satellite's hasn't slowed down and I've been using it for 3 years.....It's only when the operators get greedy and over subscribe speed becomes a problem.....
with the Space X satellites being so cheap and easy to put up, I doubt if it will be a problem for them.... At present manufacturing they can add 120 a month.....
