The article is talking about the problems with backhaul.


The last mile works fine for most people.


But there is no point if the telcos do not provide sufficient capacity at the other end of the wire.

[correct - my personal lowpoint

And the NBN charges the telcos for the privilege of providing backhaul, which is why they are not doing it.

[incorrect .. and contradicts your previous point]

Leave the "fraudband" politics behind and stick to the facts.

[good advice ... pity you didn't take it]
