Right, the same people who had no issue championing over 120+ POI because a certain large retail/ wholesale outfit had a tantrum (and a couple fibre network owners, who then sold) the same people who had no issue with ISPs consolidating to actually survive post-NBN and the same people who had in principle no real issue will good old Uncle Malcolm electing a technology that has variable speeds over an unreliable medium at length.
ACCC, ho-rah, what are they good for? Absolutely nothin'.
How can you claim a speed when the technology of FTTN or even FTTC isn't a fixed speed service and isn't a guaranteed one; neither is HFC.
The old NBN, the Fibre one? Seems to have worked out fine; this mongrel model that's flavour of the month, that would cost less, be faster to deploy and more suitable, is none of these things. Government I can partly excuse, they are just going to be lobbied. FTTH might have been a rolls royce, sure; but have you seen one? Well built and run for decades. Funny that.
ACCC should know better. And haven't learned a damn thing. Let's just complain business that sell services over a network are the problem; shoot the messenger. That always works.
