Two experienced commentators on Australia's national broadband network, the NBN, have drawn different conclusions from the broadband speed data by Ookla, the company that provides the online Speedtest application for testing download and upload speeds.
The privatisation of NBN Co sometime in the future may well end up creating a similar situation like that in the 1990s, when the introduction of new players like Optus and the privatisation of Telstra did not bring about the level of investment needed to keep Australia's infrastructure in pace with growing digital needs, especially in regional areas, a network expert says.
The quest by the NBN Co to push up the average revenue per user is ill-fated as this would lead to a rise in retail prices, which would in turn, result in a drop in the number of paying customers, a network expert claims.
Why has the Australian Government set up, at great expense to the taxpayer, a standing committee on the national broadband network? Simple. It is a way of convincing people that the government is seized of the importance of the NBN and at the same time defending the cock-eyed policy it has on the rollout.
The chief architect behind TransACT has suggested that if NBN Co were to make contention ratios available to consumers, it would help them choose retail service providers who could supply the speeds they sought.

iiNet has announced today that it has entered into a binding agreement to acquire Canberra-based telecommunications company, TransACT for $60 million.
Trading in iiNet shares was suspended today after the Financial Review reported that it was about to buy ACT and Victorian HFC and FTTH network operator TransACT.
Three years after being acquired by TransACT, the Neighbourhood Cable brand is no more.
TransACT has joined the Australian Government's telecommunications commodities, carriage and associated services panel.
A team from the ACT backed by local carrier TransACT achieved a world-beating result in Movember.
It's not exactly an NBN-scale milestone, but TransACT has connected its 1000th FTTP (fibre to the premises) customer.
