Interestingly, New Zealand is a country where new technological advancements are often trialled first, before being introduced to the rest of the world. For example; fpos, mobile phone network (if I remember correctly), external card terminals for accessing our bank & credit card accounts, there are other things as well, perhaps KiwiNZ will add to this list if he sees this post?

Anyway, the reason I bring that up in this thread, is that I expect that what is going on in regards to the internet in Oz, is also a test/trial, that may very likely find its way into other countries as time goes by.
I certainly hope that I am wrong about that.
The population of Oz don't want this system, so why do we have to pay for it, & live with it?
A government that truly represents its people surely is hard to find in this day & age. Pandering to corporations has become the pass time of national governments.

"All change is not growth, as all movement is not forward."
What's up with the Australian federal government?
Which corporate conglomerates are behind the obviously unreasonable infringement of the people of Australia's rights to freely choose how they want to use the internet?
Have you ever found something in the second-to-last place you looked?
If it seems like I am ignoring you, perhaps I am.
