NBN: Myths Debunked

This video from Macquarie University has been around since August – but with recent announcements from the Federal Opposition regarding policy towards the National Broadband Network (NBN), and their ill-conceived, badly under engineered and ultimately more expensive Fibre to the Node (FTTN) plan, I thought it pertinent to spread this one out more widely.

As a warning, it is quite technical in places, and if you choose to watch it right through its entire 56 minute length, I suggest you get a cuppa and a few biscuits ready before you start, but it is worth it if you want to understand what is really happening out there – rather than all the misinformation that is out there.

I’ve heard Peter Ferris speak on a number of occasions, and having spent more than 16 years in the IT industry myself, dealing with telco issues for much of that career, I don’t think I’ve ever struck a person with as much intrinsic knowledge on this stuff as he.

Watch and learn.
