Release of GimpCo board minutes “not in public interest:”

So much for Waffles’ promise of much greater transparency. Labor MUST release screeds of stuff after the election, saving only REAL CiC.

news The Opposition today promised to deliver Fibre to the Premises to most of the West Coast of Tasmania if it wins the upcoming Federal Election, in a move squarely aimed at resolving the complaints of residents and businesses in the area over being relegated to satellite broadband access under the Coalition.

Residents of areas such as Queenstown in Western Tasmania were previously scheduled to have received a full Fibre to the Premises rollout as part of the previous Labor Government’s original NBN plan.

However, under the Coalition’s revised Multi-Technology Mix approach to the NBN, they will instead only receive satellite broadband, with the NBN company not planning to deploy any fixed broadband infrastructure to some areas of the state, despite the fact that townships such as Queenstown already have ADSL broadband over Telstra’s copper network, and several thousand local residents.

This is good. Not just for the honest burghers of Queenstown etc (very important tourish hub and all) but the bloody Libs are overloading the satellites! Any many-to-one service like wireless bb or satellite suffers when too many subscribers are sharing the service.

This comment illustrates that:

If they give all those that Turnbull is switching over to satellite the broadband connections originally pla[n]ned then they could probably allow satellite customers more than the paltry 150GB per month they are imposing on them to skimp on areas of the rollout.


The MTM is a steaming pile of shit!

The Coalition MP for West Tassie obviously devastated by the Labor promise re FTTH for West Tassie. “Sick hoax” chummy called it.

Go away, idiot, prepare for your post–politics career—in anywhere but Tassie!
