Re: 80%+ on 25Mbps or slower != high speed
> Calling big users 'data hogs' is quite a joke:
It is the volume of data being transferred not the speed which is causing the network congestion. It is reasonably to call those people wanting unlimited internet data hogs and encourage them to recognise that by reducing CVC prices, AVC will need to rise, pricing higher speed connections out of reach, fulflilling the Liberal's statements that demand for higher speeds don't exist.
> Labor's original projection was pre-Netflix and pre every news site loading three auto-run videos on every page.
Labor's projection was 2008/2009. Netflix was well established in the US by this time and many people in Australia were streaming video. It should have been obvious to any technology observer of the direction that technology was heading, especially when streaming video was given as an example.
> Still, the original NBN was designed to cope with such increases in demand.
Labor designed the NBN to see revenue growth from CVC while AVC revenue shrunk so that people could afford higher speeds.
> I've got no idea what the Multi Technology Mix (now plus yet another technology) was designed to handle.
Faster than 25Mbps which is adequate for 80%+ (and increasing). At the request of selfish data hogs the Liberals will decrease CVC pricing making faster speeds too expensive and justifying MTM. Of course these same people will grumble about not having 1Gbps connections ignoring the fact that Labor planned for less than 1% to have 1Gbps in 2026.
