    The killer to online business in Australia? Turnbull breaks NBN promise now half the speed!

    I am shocked at this, and I know mobile will probably pick up the speed difference in the future, but it's still nice to have fast internet now. I'm in the UK using a copper connection at an average 52Mbps and up to 80Mbps on really good days, which often gives me around the 5 to 8MB per second download speed. At my place in Newcastle the fastest I could get was 1.5Mbps giving me around 0.15MB downloaded ever second. It is dire and slows down online business. Where other countries are investing heavily in online broadband speed to get their population more action of the internet market Australia looks to actively trying to stop itself being part of the world!

    Turnbull breaks NBN promise: Less than half to get 25Mbps in 2016 | ZDNet

    If Australia had faster internet people like the guys that did the 2nd Harlem Shake: SunnyCoastSkate - which was the one that made it popular might be able to bring a lot more international money into Australia.

    Looking just at money:
    It's had 26 Million views which in advertising sense on youtube would be an earning of around the $300,000 Aud! Probably 90% of that would be from international sources. If Australia had faster internet it could benefit from people earning more by being able to take advantage of interest in Australia and creative genius of Aussies to make a lot more cash.

    Holding internet speeds back is just redundant to growth in Australia.

    Just for good measure to help out our fellow Aussies:
