There's been a most unseemly stoush between Telstra and Vodafone in recent days over who has the fastest LTE (aka 4G) network. Pity, then, that Telstra and its MVNO partners are not upfront about the third rate 3G offering Telstra makes available to MVNOs.
The Federal Opposition has been demanding for years that a cost-benefit study to be undertaken for the National Broadband Network.

Patent trolls are protean creatures. One man's patent troll is another man's legitimate licensor of intellectual property.
MOOCs: massive, open online courses. And that's according to no lesser personage than Bob Metcalfe, widely recognised as the co-inventor of ethernet and the formulator of the prediction on networking now known as Metcalfe's Law.
Australians' love affair with smartphone and tablets and their insatiable appetite for content and applications have been good to Telstra. They have boosted its first mover advantage with LTE significantly, but that advantage will be magnified even further when Telstra introduces joyn.
For many, the question of what will drive demand for the NBN's bandwidth remains unanswered and while the there are multiple initiatives seeking to provide answers, Australia would do well to emulate the USA where a new body, US Ignite, has been created to do just that, but with very broad membership and hugely ambitious goals.
