Sorry Telstra!

Telstra are already whinging after being excluded from the National Broadband Network (NBN) tender process, after submitting a non-compliant bid.

What did they expect?

The bottom line is, even if their bid was compliant, their projected cost of $39.95 per user, per month, for 12Mb speeds, with only 200MB of total download allowance is/was a complete joke.

In my opinion, Telstra don’t really care about the NBN – they are just trying to protect their 100% monopoly on the local copper loop “last mile” into everyone’s home or business.

Other bidders are talking about fibre into the home – completely bypassing the need for Telstra’s copper network for connected users.

So Telstra are panicking. Awww.
