Libs should spend money fixing the shoddy mess they made of the NBN:

NBN Co's most complained-about access tech is FTTC

Several thousand complaints a quarter.

NBN Co might claim fibre-to-the-curb users are among its biggest advocates, but users connected with that access technology also lodge more complaints than others.

FTTC done by present NBN management was always going to be a shemozzle. Have the fuckwits not yet worked out that the copper is corroded, too thin, problematic etc etc? How many different technologies are there now?

1. FTTH, the part of the network performing best and contributing a lot of revenue

2. FTTB—fibre to the basement of blocks of flats/homeunits. Copper is inside and likely of reasonable thickness unlike the Telstra copper. Works OK where the units are resonably close to where the fibre enters the block of units.

3. FTTKerb, called FTTC anywhere else. As we see, problems.

4. Wireless, throttled by the idiots in NBN management using microwave instead of fibre to connect towers to exchanges. Real stupid choice but for ideological reasons NBN does not want to roll out any fibre at all.

5. Satellite, overloaded by NBN Co putting too many people onto satellite.

6. Cable, the Foxtel cables. Might be alright if Fox changes to satellite only, until then—bandwidth problems.

7. FTTN, the worst choice possible in this country as the Telstra copper is corroded to buggery and too thin for low impedance for high speed broadband. The nodes are way underprovided with fibre.

Expensive mess, gross waste of public moneys. Holding back business and jobs growth.

Australia has the most people on wireless broadband because the Telstra copper is crap. I am on non-NBN wireless broadband. Not flash but reasonable and steady service.

I'm more interested in seeing how they deal with the boobytraps they laid for Labor thinking they'd be losing.

One easy trap: defer paying some obligation until after the election, knowing that would blow a hole in the Oppositions promise to reduce the deficit etc.

The policy-free Lib Party, the Treasurer and the RBA governor.

Embarrassing. An admission the Libs have no policy—relying on infrastructure spending by the states just when the states are facing a revenue-spending crunch as lower GST receipts and a crash in stamp duties. Time for the Commonwealth to step up and spend some money but they can’t do that because it increases gross national debt when they are supposedy about to get a surplus.
