    Aussie Internet doomed because of streamers....

    Australia's internet could be on brink of collapse as a result of our love for Netflix and online streaming, an IT expert has warned. Mark Gregory, electronic and telecommunications associate professor at RMIT University, believes the nation's network is at risk of failing during peak times.
    'The network could effectively stop between 5pm to 9pm,' he told The New Daily.

    Australia, a wealthy nation with a widely envied quality of life, lags in one essential area of modern life: its internet speed. Eight years after the country began an unprecedented broadband modernization effort that will cost at least 49 billion Australian dollars, or $36 billion, its average internet speed lags that of the United States, most of Western Europe, Japan and South Korea. In the most recent ranking of internet speeds by Akamai, a networking company, Australia came in at an embarrassing No. 51, trailing developing economies like Thailand and Kenya.

    Thai bashing Aussies take note. Shameful.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Australians should never have abandoned the old ways of communicating, throwing the boomerang, or a thong.

    Quite good that one.

    But hey, Australia is a friggin joke compared to many Asian countries.

    Thailand's Internet speed shits all over AUD and also Australia's public transport system is fully retarded compared to Thailand's.

    Not to mention the woman ???? We won't go there eh.

    I'll be back there in two days stay 4 weeks or so and bolt back to Asia.

    Fooookkk Australia.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    so it went from evey home to have access to 100 meg up and down for 20 dollars a month to crap and it still cost 50 percent more so far - total cockup and relegated australia to the back of the pack when it comes to developing tech based on internet connections

    and saved foxtel

    ...that's a lot of uninhabited outback to cable up, and maintain. Internet is bound to be faster and cheaper in densely populated centres like Seoul, Tokyo, and Hong Kong.
