NBN's 1Gbps not news, just 'clarification'

With exquisite timing prime minister Julia Gillard has 'announced' an 'upgrade' to the capabilities of the NBN saying it will deliver not 100Mbps but 1Gbps to subscribers. The reality is it has been able to do that all along. NBN Co has simply clarified its rules.
