Let's be honest. There are a lot of things that have not gone well for NBNCo. From sweeping policy changes that the Coalition Government introduced, to deployment challenges and some "creative marketing" on the part of RSPs (Retail Service Providers), there are some things that clearly could be done better. But not everything that is wrong with broadband access is the fault of the NBN.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
While many of us are going to wait quite a while longer for the NBN to roll up our streets, 400 Australian Defence Force sites have been tagged to get access to the "world class broadband network". The sites will be upgraded so personnel serving on them will be able to access high-speed broadband to keep in touch with their families and friends all over Australia and the rest of the world.
